Sennheiser’s AVX contest culminates at Cabsat
UAE: Cabsat will mark the culmination of Sennheiser Middle East’s AVX video contest. The show will see an esteemed panel of judges, including Allie Ghaffour, head of audio for Al Jazeera and Achim Gleissner, commercial manager for the broadcast & media segment for Sennheiser, pick three winners.
‘This competition has been our way of engaging with and supporting local content producers,’ said Mig Cardamone, director of sales and marketing at Sennheiser Middle East. ‘We really want to encourage up and coming local talent to create interesting and engaging content that demonstrates their audio and video skills. We’re looking forward to seeing the level of talent that we have here and also to awarding an excellent audio for video solution based around AVX that will help them with their future projects and productions.’
In line with the competition, Sennheiser will have a focus on AVX at Cabsat. ‘The system itself takes care of all the necessary settings, making it the ideal fit for videographers on the go, field reporters, and any application that requires professional audio quality without the worry of frequency, interference, sensitivity or other technical aspects,’ stated Mr Cardamone.
‘The broadcast industry is a very important part of our global and regional business as we seek to maintain our leadership position in this segment and to shape the future of audio. This year we are strengthening our ties with Cabsat even further as the Diamond Sponsors for the Content Congress, as well as co-exhibiting at the show along with our long-term partner, Venuetech,’ he continued. ‘After a successful 2015 in which several regional broadcasters, including Al Jazeera Networks and Sharjah TV, adopted the gold-standard in wireless microphone systems, Digital 9000, we want to consolidate that success and show our support for the region‘s broadcasters and content creators by continuing to highlight our innovations in the industry. Of course with so many industry players participating and attending, it’s also a great opportunity to secure new leads and evaluate new partners.’
