• Envirosight, Vivax form strategic alliance
RANDOLPH, NJ, Nov. 7, 2007 -- Envirosight, a world leader in video pipeline inspection, and Vivax, an innovator of push camera and locator technology, have announced a strategic alliance whose goal is to further the development of push camera technology, and to grow the sales channel for such technology throughout the North American market.
The Envirosight product development team will work with Vivax on development of a digital operating platform that will be common among push cameras, mainline crawlers and zoom survey cameras. This will allow operators to maximize the interoperability of their video inspection equipment, enjoy greater functionality, and consolidate their equipment investment.
Vivax plans to leverage Envirosight's strong sales and support channel, which includes more than 25 trained sales partner organizations throughout North America, as well as six authorized service centers.
As part of the strategic alliance, Envirosight will private label Vivax equipment for the North American environmental market, and Vivax will grant Envirosight municipal sales exclusivity. Envirosight will officially launch the new push camera line February 27 at the 2008 Pumper Cleaner Environmental Expo in Louisville, Kentucky.
