Bluebell Opticom Receives Emmy® For SDI-Over-Fibre Technology

News Image
Bluebell Opticom Ltd has been awarded an Emmy® from the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) for its SDI-over-fibre technology, at the 69th annual ceremony.

The 69th Annual Technology & Engineering Emmy Awards ceremony took place in Las Vegas during the 2018 NAB Show in April, where Bluebell managing director Paul Felix McCann accepted the award.

When Bluebell, a 25-year-old company, began making equipment that converted SDI to light, the work was based on academic interest. However, broadcasters were quick to adopt the new technology when they saw its advantages. As a result, SDI signal transport over fibre is commonplace today, and Bluebell has become a trusted vendor for thousands of broadcasters, OB truck companies, stadiums, governments, and satellite uplink stations throughout the world.

"I am very proud of what we have achieved over the years, and it's a tremendous honour to be recognised for those achievements by NATAS," said Mr McCann. "It's thrilling to see that what started out as a good idea for a product has been embraced by the whole industry. We continue to push the boundaries to provide our clients with leading-edge, useful technology. This award is a huge milestone for our company and means a great deal to me personally."
