Ross Video has announced that the openGear Terminal Equipment Platform has won the prestigious Society of Broadcast Engineers (SBE) Technology Award, for the 2006 Awards Program.
The SBE Technology Award recognizes the SBE Individual or Sustaining Member who, in the previous year, has provided the industry with the best new or innovative technical item or idea to further the science of broadcast engineering and to assist the broadcast engineer to be more productive in the craft. The Award will be presented during the SBE National Meeting taking place October 10 -11, 2007 in Monroeville (Pittsburgh), PA.
“We are extremely pleased and honored openGear has won the SBE
Technology Award,” said Eric Goodmurphy, Marketing Product Manager, RossGear. “openGear continues to revolutionize the terminal equipment industry by offering customers the freedom to choose the best solution for their particular needs.
