Tech Tools Press Release

MAY 2022

Introducing the latest sub-brand from Pulse-Eight, Tech Tools.

Tech Tools

Tech Tools products have been meticulously selected and fully tested by the same engineers that design all Pulse-Eight goods.

Unlike other solutions from Pulse-Eight, Tech Tools is not made in-house. Products are sourced from multiple manufacturers around the world to offer a vast array of solutions. This portfolio has been tested and analysed from our British Factory ensuring the best experience for the end user.

"​​​Our new Tech Tools solutions offer consumers access to a wider range of products and faster delivery times"

Marc Waple, Global Director of Sales says, "Our new Tech Tools solutions offer consumers access to a wider range of products and faster delivery times in the current climate of component shortages and inevitable extended shipping times that continue to plague our industry. Tech Tools is our answer to this. Reducing lead times and increasing product availability for our global customers is something we are pleased to be able to address with this new range."

There will be an extensive range of video and audio accessory products in the Tech Tools portfolio over the coming months starting with the first brand-new HDMI® 1x2 splitter that offers downscaling capabilities plus analogue and digital audio extract.
