AHRENSBURG, GERMANY-Allied Vision Technologies (AVT), manufacturer of cameras and components for image processing in industrial and life science applications, and OpteamX have signed a distribution contract granting OpteamX the rights for the exclusive distribution of AVT digital cameras in Israel. OpteamX, a supplier of machine vision components and solutions with headquarters in Azor, Israel, near Tel Aviv, has been selling Prosilica cameras since 2006.

As a result of AVT’s acquisition of Prosilica in July 2008, OpteamX will offer both AVT and Prosilica’s entire product lines.

“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 AVT. “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, chief executive officer of OpteamX. “With AVT and Prosilica, we can now offer the best of both leading camera interfaces, FireWire and GigE, to the Israeli market.”
