Kortrijk, Belgium, 20 January 2016 – Visualization expert Barco and audio-visual (AV) expert Peripheral Vision have just signed a distributor agreement.

We offer our customers the highest-quality solutions to cater to that demand,” says Wynand Langenhoven. “Barco’s high-end offering definitely meets our stringent criteria for quality, innovation, support, etc.”
One-stop-shop for all markets
Signing this new agreement, Peripheral Vision is now an official South African distributor of a wide range of Barco products − from networked AV solutions, the complete line-up of Barco projectors (except digital cinema projectors) and Image Processing solutions through to the ClickShare collaboration product range. “This partnership really offers many lucrative opportunities and growth possibilities for both companies,” Langenhoven adds.
