AVT Appoints OpteamX as Exclusive Distributor in Israel

June 8, 2009

AHRENSBURG, GERMANY - Allied Vision Technologies (AVT) and OpteamX have signed a distribution contract granting OpteamX the rights for the exclusive distribution of AVT digital cameras in Israel from May 2009 on. OpteamX, a supplier of machine vision components and solutions with headquarters in Azor near Tel Aviv, Israel, have been successfully selling Prosilica cameras since 2006.

As a result of the acquisition of Prosilica by Allied Vision Technologies in July 2008, OpteamX will now offer the whole range of the leading camera manufacturer out of one hand, including both AVT FireWire and Prosilica GigE Vision cameras.

“OpteamX has performed very well as a Prosilica distributor in the past, so it was a natural move to expand the distribution agreement to the whole AVT portfolio as part of the consolidation of our sales channels," says Jochen Braun, director of international sales for Allied Vision Technologies. “We are convinced that OpteamX will help us increase our business by offering Israeli customers state-of-the-art service and support.”

“We are delighted to gain Allied Vision Technologies as a partner for high-quality machine vision cameras,” says Maya Fryszer, CEO of OpteamX. “With AVT and Prosilica, we can now offer the best of both leading camera interfaces, FireWire and GigE, to the Israeli market.”
