Broadcasting equipment distributor, G.D.B. International, has expanded its portfolio to include battery manufacturer, CityTek, which produces a range of V-Mount batteries suitable for broadcast-quality video equipment.
G.D.B. sales and marketing manager, David Cooper, said the distributor was approached by CityTek, and found it liked the quality of the products.
“We try to only have one representative for each area of manufacturing,” Cooper said. “The market is quite busy at the moment, but we really liked what CityTek offered, and its price points.”
A new television HD-SDI broadcasting standard has generated a lot of interest for the industry and led to a busy start of the year, Cooper said.
“We’ve got back orders to March,” he said. “We’re aiming for growth this year, and are chasing a couple of other manufacturers, but we’re being selective with who we bring on board, and looking for complementary fits.
“The V-Mount capability of the CityTek line means we’ve already tied the batteries up in bundles.”
