Huddle Room Technology, provider of the most innovative Wireless Presentation Systems proudly announces the appointment of Kathea as its Exclusive Distribution Partner in South Africa.

HRT is the maker of Huddle Hub, the first multi-session wireless presentation system in the Industry supporting up to 6 concurrent sessions on the same hardware. Huddle Hub supports both legacy-style (device to display) for traditional meeting rooms use and an unprecedented BYOD scenario (device to device) for use in any physical space of a corporate building including lobbies, lounges and open spaces.

Beyond enhancing the traditional presentation experience, lowering the cost per concurrent session and unleashing the power of collaboration in more suitable spaces, HH offers a unique opportunity for seamless videoconferencing integration. A distinguishing feature dubbed “Wireless AV” introduces the concept of “zero-cables design” to define a collaboration space where both the audio and video of a VC session are connected wirelessly from USB cameras or all in one video soundbar systems, an industry first.

"We are both excited and honored to announce our partnership with Kathea," says Stefano Spattini CEO of HRT, "covering South Africa and 20 more countries in the continent. A leading added value distributor, committed to long term partnerships, Kathea has elected to carry only top brands of the UC & AV Industry and their decision to add the Huddle Hub line to their catalogue enshrines the enrollment of HRT in such prestigious circle of vendors.

Since the very beginning of our conversation with Kathea," continues Stefano, "we have found that we share the same vision regarding evolution of collaborative workspaces and the compelling role that wireless integration of AV technologies is going to play for emerging BYOD, BYOC scenarios. The Kathea team definitively owns all the advanced skills required to design, deploy and support the next generation of AV projects and we can’t wait to join them in action."

"After testing various wireless content sharing solutions, Kathea decided to partner with HRT for the great technology and support that they offer," says Jacques Conradie, Head of Video & Audio Visual at Kathea. "Huddle Hub makes wireless collaboration easy and intuitive. HHO is not just a wireless content sharing device, it also turns your all-in-one USB camera into a wireless camera. We were looking for a solution that will make wireless content sharing and the use of BYOC (bring your own codec) easy to install and use – we have found all of this and more in HHO."
