Anyware Computer Accessories has inked a distribution deal with digital home network vendor, OWLink Technology.
The US-based vendor's technology transmits uncompressed digital video, audio and control signals over a single Digital Light Interface (DLI) fibre optic cable.
Anyware managing director, Garrison Huang, said the new deal would help Anyware boost its position in the multimedia and home entertainment market.
"OWLink reflects our intensions to build up our portfolio in this area," he said. "The products fits well in this market where people are mixing computers with home entertainment systems.
"We want to be able to further grow our business by adopting new trends."
Huang said he would like to recruit more AV and computer resellers. Anyware is bundling the OWLink products with a wireless keyboard that features a track ball.
