Capital Networks is proud to support Sony as a member of the new Collaborative Alliances program.
Sony Electronics, a manufacturer of a comprehensive, end-to-end lineup of professional AV products and solutions, is reinforcing its commitment to the community through alliances with key providers in the space. This new “Collaborative Alliances” program will allow Sony to offer even more compelling capabilities by providing integrated solutions through alignment with industry leaders among a variety of categories and applications.
“By working collaboratively with the best and most innovative brands in the pro AV space, we’re approaching each alliance as an opportunity to combine our collective strengths and expertise to become a powerful community,” said Theresa Alesso, Pro Division President, Sony Electronics. “As we seek to enhance the functionality and increase the interoperability of Sony’s industry-standard AV technology, we’re enabling our community to use impactful Digital Signage, Video Collaboration and Unified Communications platforms to engage customers in an even more dynamic and connected manner, while offering our users valuable, all-inclusive and cost-conscious solutions for a range of scenarios.”
In order to effectively represent the wide-ranging partner ecosystem, Sony will prioritize its focus on integrating and optimizing hardware and software solutions that meet the needs of channel partners, resellers, integrators and consultants serving corporate, education, government, healthcare, faith, retail, entertainment and transportation verticals – and ultimately, end users.
“We have focused on compatibility first and foremost, with joint testing of the partner’s software on a ProBRAVIA display, which we provide to their team for ongoing testing,” says industry vet Jay Leedy, who has been building up partnerships since joining the company. “The partners also provide our team sample content, and access to their platforms, so we can jointly assess performance”.
Combined with the Capital Networks Audience CMS, customers and channel partners will benefit from easy deployment and lower cost of operations of the Sony display solutions—but also have a fully featured CMS to manage all the digital signage opportunities within their environment.
“Our collaboration with Sony allows customers to take advantage of our feature-rich digital signage solution including advanced scheduling, interactive features and triggered content’, said Jim Vair, President, Capital Networks.
“Along with our more than 30 years in the business, this partnership provides partners and customers with a trusted and reliable source when looking for a powerful and efficient digital signage solution”.
