Nationwide Marketing Group announced today that it has partnered with AWOL Vision, an innovative and quality-driven leader in the home entertainment industry. Through Nationwide’s eXchange platform and Oasys Residential Technology Group, dealers will now be able to sell AWOL Vision’s ultra short throw laser TV projectors, plus offer custom installation services.

“Nationwide members in the consumer electronics space already benefit from one-click access to sell thousands of unique products both online and in store,” says Randy Derr, Nationwide’s director of distribution and eXchange. “Adding AWOL Vision’s product line to the mix increases the independent channel’s ability to stay competitive in a growing category.”

AWOL Vision’s parent company, Elevation Technology Partners, was established in 2020; however, the AWOL product first came to market in 2022 using the Indiegogo platform to raise over $1 million. Since then, AWOL Vision’s products have evolved to include Dolby Vision HDR and smart home integration to further enhance the customer experience.

“We wanted to partner with NMG to expand our dealer network, as we now have manufacturer reps in 48 states,” shares Steven Shulman, CEO of AWOL Vision. “Demand for our products continues to grow in the residential market, and as we aim to become a household name, we need more boots on the ground to introduce new and exciting technology to existing and new clients!”

For Oasys members, AWOL Vision provides the resources to meet consumer demand for projectors and become a one-stop shop from purchase to in-home service.

“It’s not just the home projector market that’s growing,” Derr adds. “The demand for personalized installation support continues to grow as well. Consumers want more than a cookie-cutter experience. They want to create unique home entertainment spaces that break traditional boundaries to create an immersive experience — and this partnership with AWOL Vision empowers NMG members to give local customers that personalized attention.”

For more information on product lineup and features, NMG members can explore the AWOL portfolio on eXchange — including the Ultra Short Throw Projector, Tri-Color Laser Projector product line and an all-new 132-inch Cinematic ALR Seamless Screen.
