Sergio Constantino said that "The Merlin Road Show has been an extremely efficient way to bring information about new products and technologies to customers who do not have the opportunity to go to an international event, such as NAB, for example, in addition to having the opportunity to see the product live and be able to handle it. The large presence of the public in this edition of Rio de Janeiro only reinforces the importance of the event for customers" – highlighting the focus that his company had on the event – "In the JVC line, we especially highlight the camcorders of the Connected CAM line (GY-HC500/GY-HC550) that won the best camcorder award at NAB 2023, for its technical characteristics, innovation, connectivity capacity and cost efficiency, in addition to the line of PTZ cameras, with very competitive technical characteristics and prices, in addition to presenting the new products launched at NAB, such as the RM-LP5 PTZ controller, the KM-HD6 switcher, the KM-IP8 and KM-IP8S4 switchers and the surface panel for vMix switchers, the RM-LP350".
For his part, Ricardo Santos said: "The Merlin Road Show Congress is an event in which we have always been participating since we started our commercial partnership with Merlin, and for my personal opinion it is the largest event organized in Latin America by a single reseller. This is an event that adds information to people and gives opinion formation, where professionals who visit it have the opportunity to be in contact with manufacturers and their products, generating great results in the medium term, added to the fact that it usually has a level of viewers that is based on all verticals of the video market, so it is of utmost importance within the Brazilian market."
The next edition of this event will be held on July 25 in the city of Belo Horizonte.
