Radio magazine, the Radio Technology Leader published by NewBay Media, announced the winners of the Pick Hit Awards for the 2012 NAB Show. The Radio magazine Pick Hits panel selects the top 20 new products introduced at the convention.
This year, Electronics Research, Inc. earned one of the coveted Pick Hit Awards for its 788 Series All Pass Diplexer. This revolutionary high level diplexer combines FM analog and digital (HD Radio) with greater efficiency and better performance than other techniques currently in use. The All Pass Diplexer system does not have the high insertion loss of 10 dB hybrid injectors, which waste significant amounts of analog and digital transmitter power. The All Pass analog insertion loss is -0.35 dB or less and the digital loss is -1.4 dB or less. In addition, the group delay performance is superior to alternative high level combining methods and is readily correctable by currently available FM transmitters.
"The Pick Hit Awards are limited to 20 winners, which maintains the value and prestige of the award," says Chriss Scherer, editor of Radio magazine. In addition, the Pick Hit Award judges follow a strict set of rules and make their selections independently and anonymously, which is a further testimony to the proven value of the award to radio broadcasters."
The Pick Hit Awards were first presented at the NAB Convention in 1985, making them the oldest technology award at the convention. The Pick Hit Awards are selected by a panel of judges who are radio broadcast engineers from radio stations, radio networks and radio production facilities. The official Pick Hit rules require that the winning products must fit a recognized need in radio, are priced within reason, are available within the current calendar year and have never before been exhibited at the NAB convention.
The complete list of recipients will be published in the June 2012 issue of Radio magazine, and is also posted online at RadioMagOnline.com.
