Airpul AC8231 Transmitter and Receiver

Adimex has been appointed as the exclusive distributor for Airpul in Australia and New Zealand. A new player in broadcast technology, the US-based Airpul provides wireless audio and video transmission solutions for the broadcast industry, including transmitter and receiver products that allow HD cameras to transmit wirelessly over long distances.

“We introduced Airpul to one of our key resellers early in the evaluation cycle,” says Adimex sales manager Frank Nicolaci. “They put the Airpul through its paces and were impressed with the transmission distance, reliability, near-zero latency and the price. Their vote of confidence was instrumental in Admimex moving forward with the distribution, as we then knew our channel would be confident recommending Airpul to their customers.”

Nicolaci says he will work closely with leading broadcast and professional AV and ICT resellers and integrators to develop opportunities for the brand. It already boasts a significant international distribution channel based on performance and lower cost, with deals now in place in China, Taiwan, Singapore, Hong Kong, the US, UK, Brazil and the Arab Emirates.
