We’re excited to work in partnership with Barco on launching the innovative Unisee video wall product into the UK and Ireland. UniSee is set to revolutionise the market place providing a seamless viewing experience for end users, along with a bespoke bracketry solution behind the screen, making installation quicker and easier for installers!

Joe Trippett-Jones, Product Manager, Midwich commented:

“Having been one of the lucky few to witness UniSee prior to the global launch in October, I was immediately struck by not only the visual performance and scalability potential, but also the overall customer experience Barco have created with this product. We’re delighted to bring this revolutionary technology to our existing and new potential customers, and further strengthen our connectivity and projection relationship with Barco as a strategic brand for the Midwich Group.

As a leader and innovator in large screen visualisation, Barco maintains close connections with end-users, resellers and distributors. Following their market feedback, Barco decided to completely rethink the concept of LCD videowalls and their mounting structures. The result is Barco UniSee − a revolutionary modular platform that surpasses traditional LCD videowalls on every level, and that will define the LCD videowall market for many years to come.

Midwich is a specialist AV and document solutions distributor to the trade market, with operations in the UK and Ireland, France, Germany, Iberia, Netherlands and Australasia. The Group's long-standing relationships with over 300 vendors, including blue-chip organisations such as Samsung, LG, Epson and NEC, supports a comprehensive product portfolio across major audio visual categories such as large format displays, projectors, digital signage and printers. The Group operates as the sole or largest in-country distributor for a number of its vendors in their respective product sets. The Directors attribute this position to the Group's technical expertise, extensive product knowledge and strong customer service offering built up over a number of years. The Group has a large and diverse base of approximately 10,000 customers, most of which are professional AV integrators and IT resellers serving sectors such as corporate, education, retail, residential and hospitality. Although the Group does not sell directly to end users, it believes that the majority of its products are used by commercial and educational establishments rather than consumers.

Initially a UK only distributor, the Group now has over 650 employees, and in the year to 31 December 2016, 33 per cent of the Group's revenues were derived from outside the UK and Ireland. A core component of the Group's growth strategy is further expansion of its international operations and footprint into strategically targeted jurisdictions.
