TransLanTech Sound is proud to announce the latest additions to its increasing roster of dealers, Media Technologie Service in Nogent-sur-Marne, France, and Progressive Concepts, a radio broadcast equipment supplier outside of Chicago.
Media Technologie, based in the Ile-de-France region, is a provider of consulting, integration, and product sales to the broadcast industry. Manager Cedric Maufroy is pleased to provide top-notch digital audio processing to his customers.
Progressive Concepts was founded by Eric Hoppe in 1990 as a source for high-quality broadcast products and service. Hoppe says, “It is our philosophy that our broadcast equipment products are of such high quality that, when you try them, you’ll want to keep them. The Ariane Sequel fits right in.”

Today TransLanTech has announced a change in ownership. Co-founder David Reaves has moved on to pursue other interests, leaving the company in the hands of former partner Jim Huste.
In an interview with Paul McLane of Radio World, Huste said, “Although TransLanTech had established a strong reputation for quality and reliability, like many small companies, we found our progress slowed after the economic crash of 2008. David felt he needed more financial resources to secure his future, and his interests had shifted somewhat over the years. By the end of 2011, we had formalized the separation. TransLanTech remains a limited liability company, and at the present time, I am the sole owner.
“After 10 years in the market, there is still a strong demand for the Ariane product line, and I am looking forward to opening new markets in South America and Asia,” Huste continued. “We are also actively looking for new niche products. I’m certain that there is a hands-on CE out there mulling over an idea that could become the next Product of the Year. I’d like to use our expertise and reputation to bring it to market.”

As part of its ongoing commitment to customer support, today TransLanTech inaugurated a new product registration and warranty system. All Ariane Sequels now ship with a warranty card directing our customers to a new warranty registration form on its web site. Entering the unit serial number and date of purchase activates the twelve month warranty.
"I hope that those who have older Sequel units no longer under warranty will also take advantage of our new system so that they can be sure to hear about firmware updates and other breaking news," said Jim Huste, managing director of TransLanTech.
Sequel warranty registration can be found at www.translantech.com/warranty.

The Ariane Sequel is fully compliant with the RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) law in the European Union.
In order to reduce the amount of heavy metals (such as lead and cadmium, etc.) in landfills, the EU has ordered that the use of heavy metals in manufacturing be restricted.
This meant a bit of re- engineering for us, so we used the opportunity to redesign of the chassis and make the new version of the Sequel even more reliable and environmentally friendly than before.
