Snell & Wilcox QC Station and Mach HD earn Broadcast Engineering Pick Hit Awards at IBC2008

Hampshire, UK – Snell & Wilcox came away from IBC2008 with two of the show’s coveted Broadcast Engineering Pick Hit awards, one honoring the company’s QC Station automated quality assurance system and the other recognizing the new Mach HD HD/SD motion-compensated standards converter. The Pick Hit awards, the longest-running technical awards in the industry, are selected by readers of Broadcast Engineering World Edition magazine and working professionals in the broadcast, post, and network and satellite industries. Products that earn the Broadcast Engineering Pick Hit award are judged to have a positive impact on the intended user’s everyday work, offer substantial improvement over previous technology, and feature a price point within the reach of the intended users. QC Station’s automated monitoring capabilities ease the burden of performing quality assurance during ingest and playout, while Mach HD provides flexible, high-quality conversion that supports a smooth transition to HD in applications ranging from newsgathering, outside broadcasting, and mobile operations to dubbing and teleport/satellite operations. “Broadcasters today face tremendous demands with respect to maintaining the quality of content as it is prepared for delivery, whether to other media companies or to the viewer at home, and our QC Station and Mach HD serve as reliable and economical tools that simplify this process,” said Joe Zaller, vice president, corporate development, Snell & Wilcox. “We’re honored that the performance and utility of these new products have been recognized with this prestigious award, conferred by professionals working in the broadcast industry.”
