Looking to expand its projector business, Toshiba's five-star reseller channel will be able to buy its data projector range directly from the vendor.
The move is aimed at opening up the market in Australia - an area identified by Toshiba in Japan as providing growth opportunities. Previously, the projectors were available only through audio-visual specialist Audio Visual Australia.
Audio Visual will remain
the sole Toshiba distributor for the projectors.
"The demand for these kinds of products has risen significantly in recent months. As we have a strong product offering, we felt it beneficial to make the data projectors available through our five-star reseller channel in addition to our long-term distributor," said Toshiba corporate marketing manager, Justin White.
The range includes three products - the TLP-670, the TLP-671 and the TLP-B2. The projectors emit between 1000 and 1300 ANSI lumens of light and feature keystone correction technology and wireless mouse control compatible with Toshiba notebooks.
Toshiba hopes its resellers will be able to take advantage of additional markets and bundling opportunities particularly in the sales market, where notebook presentations are often not practical without a large screen.
