Recognizes best new or innovative technical product or concept that contributes to broadcast engineering.
Montreuil, France - 24 Sept. 2020 - The Society of Broadcast Engineers, the Association for Broadcast and Multimedia Technology Professionals, has honored multiCAM systems with the 2020 SBE Technology Award for the AIRBRIDGE remote guest manager.
According to the SBE, this award recognizes an SBE individual or sustaining member who 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.” On the award decision, SBE President Wayne Pecena said, “multiCAM continues a long succession of technology innovators who have identified and fulfilled a technical need in broadcast or multimedia technology.”
multiCAM AIRBRIDGE is a new video solution for including remote guests in shows or conferences. Up to four guests can be live at the same time, and up to 12 guests can be on the waiting list. Operators send a link to the guests. Once that link is opened, the guest is connected to the show with the host's permission.
Ideal for radio, small Web TV or podcast productions, AIRBRIDGE’s other essential features comprise video call-in management with queue and compatibility with A/V standards (AoIP in/out, NDI/SDI outputs). It’s the only professional video calling solution that lets users control video settings (scale, position, picture) of remote guests; automate mix-minus audio of all participants; adjust audio delay for each guest’s connection; and send video program to guests.
Previous winners of the prestigious SBE Technology Award include Orban, Nautel, Ross Video, Dielectric, Thales Broadcast & Multimedia, Videotek and Harris.
