AIM has just signed a deal with broadcast system specialists Factum Electronics AB that will see AIM’s products distributed around the world through Factum’s global network.
The deal consolidates AIM’s in-house sales successes and sees Factum take AIM’s products to market with immediate effect. Factum’s DAB multiplexing systems are already used by leading broadcasters across the world. This agreement provides broadcasters and network operators for the first time an integrated solution that combines both management and broadcast of data services across DAB, DAB+ and DMB platforms.
This announcement demonstrates the broadcast industry’s confidence in AIM’s products whilst recognising the increasing importance of data services.
Kenneth Lundgren, Managing Director, Factum Electronics AB, said;
‘AIM has a strong product portfolio, with easy to use, effective applications that exploit the data potential of digital radio. With our global reach we look forward to helping broadcasters around the world extend their data potential through an impressive portfolio of integrated solutions’
Managing Director of AIM Chris Gould said this deal creates a partnership that is the first to offer a truly integrated broadcast solution for audio and data services,
‘This alliance means take-up of data services is now easier than ever. For radio stations looking to enhance their digital audio services with DLS, Slide Show, EPG and other functionality, we can offer a joined-up solution between data management and broadcast systems.
2009 looks set to continue to be of strategic importance for AIM’s development; with more announcements on international deals expected over the coming months.
