Newsletter – May 2018

Welcome to our latest newsletter with highlights from last month’s NAB Show in Las Vegas and the latest on new product releases. It was fantastic to see many of our vendor partners receive product innovation and excellence awards at NAB and in less than 5 weeks they’ll be back on show at Broadcast Asia. If you’re heading to Singapore next month don’t forget your visitor registration and please visit us at the Sonifex booth 4J2-01.

Another recent highlight was the annual post NAB Nautel factory training program that gave this year’s attendees an invaluable opportunity for practical transmitter and RF theory training. The popularity of the course has resulted in Nautel taking expressions of interest for 2019 so if you’re already planning ahead for next year you can reserve your seat now!

The End of Financial Year is also fast approaching so please keep in mind manufacturing lead times for equipment purchases you’d like to make before June 30. If there’s anything we can do to assist with your planning or procurement please email [email protected] or call us on (02) 9987 0499.
