BHV Broadcast's Syntax Bridge Wins "STAR" Award From Editors of TV Technology Europe
October 16, 2013 --
The STAR is designed to celebrate and showcase technological innovations available to the broadcast industry. TV Technology Europe's editor reviewed a variety of products, examined the technical applications and their overall contribution to the industry, and then chose 25 winners.
"STAR awards are given to interesting new products that help a user save money or accomplish a task in an easier way," said Mark Hallinger, Editor of TV Technology Europe. "This year in particular we also looked for smaller incremental improvements in established products, as these improvements generally reflect a manufacturer responding to customer input, a laudable thing."
Syntax Bridge, the result of integrating BHV's award-winning Syntax up-scaler with Microvideo's well-proven HDB-300 VANC/VBI converter, was brought to market to address the ever-growing requirement for closed captions as part of the retention of metadata through the broadcast chain. Now broadcasters and facilities managers can enjoy Syntax's unrivalled upscaling quality with full control of closed captions and other VBI data, benefitting from BHV's artefact-free up-conversion and Microvideo's comprehensive metadata processing in one compact and cost-effective package.
BHV Broadcast's managing director, Julian Hiorns, stated "We are delighted to add another prestigious STAR award to our collection. Syntax Bridge is a unique collaboration of outstanding technologies from two companies that understand the need for superior artefact-free HD up-conversion with sub-titling capabilities. We are honoured that the editors of TV Technology Europe recognised its ability to fill a serious void in the industry and delighted to be working with Microvideo on this project."
Added Hallinger, "The products selected help advance the industry----some were chosen because of technical novelty or innovation, some because they filled an important gap in the production or transmission chain, and some because they were just cool products."
