To reinforce this effort, Toshiba will be dedicating a team of experts with knowledge in ProAV technology, system installations, and large government/education proposals to support the channel.
�With 11 years in the channel, Toshiba recognizes the high-level of product and technology expertise the ProAV dealer provides to Toshiba customers,� said Sam Malik, director of projector sales and marketing, Toshiba Digital Products Division. �Because of their talent and professional sales force, they bring tremendous value to customers for maximum benefit.�
