BERKSHIRE, U.K. — Bluebell Opticom Ltd., provider of innovative fibre optic solutions for fixed and remote applications, announced it has earned an Emmy Award from the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences for pioneering development of SDI over fibre optic networks.The award comes as part of the 69th Annual Technology & Engineering Emmy Awards announced in early September and the award ceremony will be held on 8th April 2018 at the NAB Show convention.
When Bluebell, a 24-year-old company, began making equipment that converted SDI to light, it did so out of academic interest. However, when broadcasters saw the advantages, they were quick to adopt the new technology. As a result, SDI signal transport over fibre is commonplace, and Bluebell has become a trusted vendor for thousands of broadcasters, OB truck companies, stadiums, governments, and satellite uplink stations throughout the world.
