June 10, 2021 - Christie® today announced that Nationwide Video is now an authorized factory representative of Christie equipment for the Pro-AV rental and staging community. With its enhanced service offerings and expansion into equipment sales, Nationwide Video will fully serve existing Christie rental and staging customers in North America effective today.
For more than 20 years, Nationwide has served the live events and rental and staging market, developing deep-rooted relationships in the industry as a trusted rental equipment resource for top-branded gear, including Christie’s leading RGB pure laser 3DLP® projectors, Christie Pandoras Box media servers and Christie Terra AV-over-IP solutions, along with several other industry brands. Nationwide Video has locations across the U.S. and Canada and is available 24/7/365.
"Our staging clients are accustomed to the service and support we provide for Christie products as well as other brands. As we expand to include equipment sales, we’ll provide complete turnkey solutions, like pre-prepped equipment and custom road cases for a faster go-to-market package for ProAV staging customers. It made sense to partner with our parent company Christie and other leading brands," says Bret Tracey, president, Nationwide Video. "To grow without compromising our commitment to never compete with our clients and partners for business, we chose to modify our business to accommodate more services."
Bryan Boehme, executive director, Americas enterprise sales and global business development, Americas, Christie, said, "As a factory authorized representative, Nationwide Video is positioned well to serve our key customers in the rental and staging market with outstanding value-added products, services, training, support, and now, sales. It’s a client base they are work with day in and day out, with proven success. The transition and program will be seamless for Christie clients as Nationwide will offer the same pricing and warranties, but with the sales and support of a partner they regularly work with."
"We will be working closely with Nationwide to ensure a seamless transition for our customers and make sure all their needs are met," said Larry Howard, director of sales, Entertainment and Events, Christie.
