Visual tools developer, disguise has announced the integration of AV supplier, Creative Technology Middle East to the disguise Certified Solution Provider (CSP) worldwide network.

The disguise Certified Solution Provider Program is designed for systems integration partners to resell disguise products and services to end customers as part of their differentiated solution. Under this program, CSPs manage, service and support end customers directly.

With inventoried offices in Europe, the US, the Middle East and the Asia Pacific regions, CT is a supplier of specialist AV equipment to the sports, corporate, exhibition and entertainment industries. In the Middle East CT has an active presence in the live events and permanent install markets. Globally, CT is a long-time disguise user, and CT Middle East (CTME) has been using disguise for more than three years.

Commenting on the announcement, Andy Reardon, Managing Director of CTME, said: “CT is always looking at new ways to raise the bar within the industry, and this CSP accreditation is the perfect addition as it enables us to continue to be a vital driving force within the region.”

“We are pleased to be a part of the disguise CSP program, allowing us to expand our offering within the industry and move CTME closer to the disguise business and user community,” he notes. “It provides us with a better understanding of the business and product pipeline and gives us a direct line to the development and engineering teams,” Andy says. “CSP accreditation allows us to be a preferred solutions provider within the region which will inevitably connect us with a larger share of the integrations market.”

CTME stated that it uses disguise for its approach to workflow, system design and architecture, and instant levels of support regionally and globally. CTME also makes use of the disguise software in their projects, particularly finding how they can “get involved in the system design and previsualization much earlier in the project timeline very useful,” explains Andy.
