Markertek Designated By Neutrik As a Certified OpticalCON Cable Assembler
Markertek (a division of Tower Products) has announced that they have been designated by Neutrik as a certified opticalCON cable assembler (COCA). Markertek joins a select few companies worldwide in achieving this designation. As such, Markertek is now authorized to assemble opticalCON DUO and QUAD cable assemblies and to sell the entire Neutrik opticalCON product range, including powerMONITOR inline monitoring products, opticalCON couplers, and related opticalCON accessories.
“Markertek has been a tremendous Neutrik distributor partner for many years,” says Pete Milbery, President of Neutrik USA. “We were impressed by the company’s state-of-the-art fiber lab and high-quality personnel enough to offer the company our COCA training and certification. We expect that Markertek’s opticalCON assembly, sales and distribution operation will positively benefit our U.S. customer base and contribute to the ongoing acceptance of opticalCON as the standard in rugged fiber optic AV connectivity.”
“We have been seeing more and more products designed around the innovative Neutrik opticalCON fiber optic connectors,” says Chris Fisher, VP of Manufacturing at Markertek. “The opticalCON systems provides a rugged option for anyone running fiber in outside broadcast or similar harsh environments. Broadcast video and audio professionals have always relied on the Markertek cable shop to deliver their critical AV signals for the past 25 years. The addition of our state of the art fiber lab and opticalCON certification carries our customers far into the future.”
