Friday, 10 April 2009
Abel Cine Tech Inc. and Air Sea Land Inc. (ASL) have announced a new partnership for the worldwide sales and distribution of the ASL Gear line of products.
The strategic association of these two veteran companies is designed to provide an established sales channel for ASL Gear products, and to create a platform for future product development and manufacturing of specialized camera accessories.
Current flagship products in the ASL Gear line include the RIP Remote Interface Panel and RIB Breakout Box, accessory management devices specifically for the RED One digital camera, and the BLuFISH 2 HD underwater housing for the Iconix HD POV (HD-RH1 & Studio 2K) cameras and the Toshiba IK-HD1.
“I’ve worked with Abel since I established Air Sea Land back in 1994,” stated Anthony S. Lenzo, President and CEO of Air Sea Land Productions. “Their reputation and technical expertise ensures us that our products, which tend to be highly specialized in nature, are distributed and supported the way a specialty product needs to be.”
“What I always loved about Anthony and his company is that they were born to be problem solvers; they have been doing it their entire production career…it’s simply in their blood,” said Pete Abel, President and CEO of Abel Cine Tech, Inc. “Spending a lifetime out in the field in extreme conditions and underwater, Air Sea Land has developed a design perspective that few others have.
“Abel and ASL have always had a mutual respect for each other’s accomplishments and we’re excited to see what develops when we put our collective heads together.”
