Lewis Eig Joins TV One as a Group Consultant Liaison

Erlanger, KY , June 11, 2012— Lewis Eig has been appointed to act as Group Consultant Liaison for TV One, Magenta Research and Furman, three Nortek, Inc. companies in the Pro A/V market. As their representative to consultants, architects and engineering firms specifying the largest Pro AV projects globally, Eig will enhance the level of education and direct support for system designers across North America for all three Nortek Technology Segment companies.

Lewis has over twenty years' experience in the Pro A/V industry, beginning as a systems integrator in central Florida, in addition to rental and staging, working as an independent consultant, and becoming Crestron Electronics' first consultant liaison in 1999. After launching the commercial division of streaming solutions provider NetStreams in 2005, he decided it was time to launch the industry's first Independent Consultant Liaison service. In 2008, Eig formed The Eig Group to provide a unique service to consultants and engineers in the Pro A/V community. The company was founded as the industry's only independent consultant liaison service, to educate, inform and assist consultants by providing technical training on a small group of complementary products from a variety of manufacturers.

"TV One, and the rest of the Nortek brands, provide a truly synergistic relationship with the core products already on board with The Eig Group," says Lewis Eig, President of The Eig Group. "We've brought great value to our meetings with consultants discussing video walls and related products from Salitek in the past 14 months, by now introducing the consulting community to TV One, plus Magenta Research and Furman; we can offer a complete solution for a wide variety of consultant driven projects."

Dan Gibson, Vice President of TV One, states, "We're excited to add Lewis to our Technology Group, as he will provide a new avenue to consultants and help in making them aware of the many benefits and unique features of our CORIO technology. By expanding our knowledge base with Lewis, consultants will also have an even better understanding of how dealers and end users can benefit from our technology."
