Manfrotto Distribution, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of the Vitec Group’s Imaging and Staging Division, recently announced an agreement with Genus Limited, Hong Kong, in which the company will have exclusive distribution rights in the U.S. for Genus.
The first product Genus brought to the market was the Genus Matte Box, which, Manfrotto claims, sets a new benchmark for performance and value. Genus has since expanded its family of products with various bar systems, sunshades, viewfinders and shoulder mounts and will continue to grow in the U.S. leveraging its partnership with Manfrotto Distribution.
With the addition of Genus to the growing number of brands it distributes, Manfrotto Distribution further strengthens the array of support products and accessories for photographers and videographers with solutions for just about any application or environment.
“I am thrilled with this agreement,” said Wayne Schulman, video sales and product manager for Manfrotto Distribution, US. “I view this as a strategic partnership between Genus and Manfrotto/Vitec group to provide the videographer and photographer with a complete camera support system of the highest quality while also offering the most value. Genus’ current product line, which includes a DSLR/Video shoulder mount, follow focus systems and matte box systems along with other interesting accessories for HD video and DSLR’s, is extensive and is a perfect match for Manfrotto Distribution. I am also excited about the future products from Genus which we will have the opportunity to bring to market over the next several months.”
