Kandao Names Image Star North American Distributor

Through this partnership, Image Star will support Kandao dealers with inventory, distribution, and dropship fulfillment services across the company’s line of video and audio conferencing solutions.

SHENZEN, CHINA and MIDDLETOWN, CT — Kandao has selected Image Star as a new authorized distributor for its line of collaboration and conferencing solutions in the United States and Canada. Through this partnership, Image Star will support Kandao dealers with inventory, distribution, and dropship fulfillment services across the company’s line of video and audio conferencing solutions.

Kandao is a global leader in high-definition camera and virtual reality technology. To support the growing demand for hybrid/remote collaboration solutions, Kandao offers a range of 360-degree video conferencing devices for offices, boardrooms, classrooms, and other collaboration environments. These award-winning cameras are equipped with face-tracking AI and voice localization to track active speakers and immerse remote workers into the conference room setting as hybrid meetings are becoming the norm. The best part is that the video conferencing camera can connect directly to a display and use any video conferencing software without using a computer.

Together, Kandao and Image Star will partner to reach new video conferencing dealers. Kandao’s advanced technology paired with Image Star’s specialist support for the SMB technology channel will offer a compelling value proposition for new channel partners.

“Video conferencing is a timely expansion opportunity for dealers looking to tap into demand for hybrid collaboration solutions,” said Philip Crean, Chief Commercial Officer for Image Star. “Kandao’s innovative approach is a real game changer. It is an affordable and flexible alternative to purpose-built telepresence rooms: simply plug in a Kandao device in the center of the room for immersive 360-degree audio and video. SMBs will love the ease of use and accessible price point.”

Kandao’s distribution partnership with Image Star will tap into the firm’s nationwide distribution network, deep client relationships, and IT and service capabilities to provide best-in-class distribution support for dealers. Image Star clients will benefit from access to Kandao’s innovative hybrid collaboration tools and channel support resources.

“We look forward to expanding our B2B channel coverage with Image Star,” said Jiawei Chen, Chief Growth Officer for Kandao. “Organizations of all sizes are looking for ways to foster better collaboration between office, hybrid, and remote colleagues. Our solutions are used in business, education, government, and other verticals across the U.S., and through the Image Star partnership, we plan to bring our products to an even wider audience.”

Resellers can now order Kandao conferencing products from Image Star for shipment starting April 15. Dealers can contact their Image Star account executive for product, pricing, and program information at
