Sennheiser plans to consolidate the success of 2015 - in which several regional broadcasters, including Al Jazeera Networks and Sharjah TV, adopted its gold standard in wireless microphone systems, the Digital 9000 - and show its support for the region’s broadcasters and content creators by continuing to highlight its innovations in the industry.
Adriano Manata, General Director, Amitrónica Indústria Electrónica Amiense, said, “As a company existing for over 30 years now, the quality and performance of the products we manufacture and offer result from a great investment in R&D, know-how and modernized technology operated by specialised personnel. Throughout the years we have also developed our ability to adapt our products and services to the specific requirements of the different market niches and acquired a vast experience from attending to markets worldwide. We believe that exhibiting in CABSAT will be a good opportunity not only to show our products and services and meet new potential clients, but also to accomplish our intent to find product distributors in the Middle East and Africa, willing to cooperate with us and create a distribution network.”
