Sony Electronics announced today that InterTest, a supplier of specialised vision products, remote visual inspection (RVI) tools, and non-destructive testing (NDT) equipment, will be named an Authorised National Systems Integrator for Sony’s Visual Imaging Products division.
This enhancement to the long-standing relationship between Sony and InterTest is an addition to the existing distribution channel. It is designed to serve an emerging class of entrepreneurial companies bringing new concepts to market with novel applications as diverse as IED remote disposal robots for surveillance and defense applications, helmet cams for sports broadcasting and borescopes for various inspection applications including nuclear and water power generation plants, automotive, air craft and general manufacturing.
“With InterTest taking on the role of an Authorised National Systems Integrator, start-ups and other companies with integration requirements but limited engineering capabilities will be better able to utilise Sony visual imaging products with InterTest’s integration talents,” said Ken LaMarca, vice president of the visual imaging products division at Sony Electronics. “This represents a new, vibrant growth area where innovative products and integration solutions create opportunity.”
“As Sony’s Authorized National Systems Integrator, we facilitate innovation in a new market segment that has emerged over the past five years,” said Bill Habermann, President and Co-Founder, InterTest. “Leveraging InterTest’s expertise with application-specific packaging of Sony technology helps this new class of niche players speed products to market while lowering their development costs.”
Sony and InterTest will work together to continue to bring high-quality vision cameras and superb integration solutions to companies of all sizes.
