Orlando, Florida, United States, 8 June 2023 – Barco, the leading manufacturer of innovative visualization and processing technologies, and its partner Evolve Technology, a provider of cutting-edge live events video solutions, proudly announce the acquisition of the 100th Barco E2. The achievement underscores Evolve’s commitment to delivering top-of-the-line video technology to clients and marks a significant milestone in their journey as a premier provider in the industry.
A technology-focused sales, rental, leasing and training company, Evolve Technology has partnered with Barco since its inception. The manufacturer is an integral part of Evolve’s growth and success as a rental partner and distributor of live events video solutions.
“Our long-standing ties with Barco have allowed Evolve to reach some pinnacle goals. In fact, the relationship with Barco was the building block that helped us establish our Distribution business,” says Robert Huskey, President and CEO at Evolve Technology. “The ability to purchase/stock/resell the Barco product line, and their commitment to technology evolution and comprehensive support has been essential to our ever-growing customer base and our business.”
The Barco E2 and Event Master family has been a runaway success in the Evolve portfolio. Huskey explains that “the E2 is a testament to Barco’s continued excellence in image processing and its’ ability to deliver best-in-class, highly reliable solutions for our industry. Seeing the level of perfection and care that goes into the Barco products, explains so much about the company and their success, and is in perfect alignment with our own mission to empower our customers with the most advanced equipment available.” With the growing demand for seamless and immersive visual solutions, the acquisition of the 100th Barco E2 solidifies Evolve’s reputation as a trusted partner for innovative event production and live experiences.
Wouter Bonte, Vice President Product Immersive Experiences Barco, adds: “Evolve was one of the early adopters of our Event Master platform, which makes it extra special to celebrate this new milestone alongside them. We are honored that the Evolve team recognizes the power of the E2 solution as a cornerstone in their image processing portfolio, and we look forward to continuing this successful partnership.”
Huskey concludes: “We had a great celebration when we hit the big “Five Oh” with the acquisition of fifty E2 units. Now, to have doubled that number and attained one hundred E2’s sold in the US is a bit like hitting the platinum level in record sales. And I foresee Evolve and Barco pushing that number even higher in the coming years.”
Evolve decided to once again celebrate the new E2 milestone with a huge cake at their VIP after party during InfoComm. You can join the celebration and/or catch a quick E2 demo at the Barco booth #2529.
