Advantage Video Systems to Showcase Bittree Audio and Video Patchbays at SMPTE 2013

Oct. 22-24 at the Loews Hollywood Hotel in Los Angeles

GLENDALE, Calif. - Oct. 8, 2013 - Bittree today announced that systems integrator and reseller Advantage Video Systems will feature Bittree's family of state-of-the-art audio and video patchbays in booth #114 at the SMPTE 2013 Annual Technical Conference & Exhibition, Oct. 22-24 at the Loews Hollywood Hotel in Los Angeles. Bittree products on display will include the company's 2x32 Mini-WECO Video and high-density 96 point 1RU Micro-Video patchbays. Bittree's new BNC feed-through panel will also be on display showing an example of a modular system solution.

"As many of our customers migrate to next-generation production capabilities such as 4K, one of their biggest considerations is cost - especially in the realm of cabling and signal routing," said Jeffrey Stansfield, owner, Advantage Video Systems. "Bittree's line of high-quality, high-density patching equipment offers an extremely effective means of offsetting the additional cabling costs by providing a centralized and convenient location for engineers to rapidly patch audio and video signals. We're looking forward to sharing these benefits with SMPTE 2013 attendees."
