BW Broadcast were proud to be awarded with a Pick Hit award at NAB 2013 for the new V2 Range of FM transmitters.
Like all BW Broadcast equipment, the V2 range is designed and built with three mantras, performance, reliability and ease of use. Engineers loved the unique Gold Clamp transistors on TX600 V2 and above, slide in power supplies on 2U models, innovative cooling system and other features to make maintenace simple. Added to this is an Ethernet connection on every V2 with smart phone apps for simple remote management. Intelligent alarms and email alerts ensure busy engineers can manage their stations with minimal intervention. A real time clock and comprehensive logging is available for those who like to see more detailed status. A high resolution OLED display for metering processing also makes setup simple. Experienced engineers will love how much control they have at their fingertips, and will find themselves eager to install their next V2 transmitter.
First presented at the NAB convention in 1985, the Pick Hit Awards are the original technology award at the convention. The awards are selected by a panel of judges who make their selections independently and anonymously and then convene for a meeting on the third day of the convention. Winning products are selected because they are useful to radio broadcasters, are priced within reason, are available within the current calendar year, and are new introductions at the NAB convention.
“The Pick Hit Awards are limited to 20 winners, which maintains the value and prestige of the award,” says Chriss Scherer, editor of Radio magazine. In addition, the Pick Hit Award judges follow a strict set of rules and make their selections independently and anonymously, which is a further testimony to the proven value of the award to radio broadcasters.” (more…)
