Engineers at Orbital Sound are among the first in the UK to be certified Axient Wireless specialists, having completed an intensive training course at Shure Distribution UK, covering all aspects of the Axient wireless management network. The London-based sound supplier is now recognized as an official Axient Partner after technical support engineers Richard Carter, Jason Fernandes and Tom Oakes undertook Shure’s two-day in-depth training course. This qualifies Orbital to offer Axient wireless systems as part of its hire stock and sales portfolio. Peter James, MD of Shure Distribution UK, commented: “We require the highest standards of product knowledge and operational expertise from companies that wish to include the Shure Axient wireless management network as part of their rental inventory. Axient is a ground-breaking product and in order to become an Axient Partner, interested companies have to demonstrate that their support infrastructure already has an innate understanding of current RF issues and technologies, backed by appropriate levels of engineering proficiency. We’re very pleased to welcome a company of Orbital’s stature and international reputation as an Axient Partner.” Orbital Sound joins the select few companies in the UK – including Scotland’s The Warehouse, who were first to receive Axient training ­– that will be qualified to handle the Axient wireless management network, and associated radio microphone systems. www.orbitalsound.comwww.shuredistribution.co.uk
