Maidenhead, UK (November 13, 2009)–TSL Professional Products Group has won a Royal Television Society 2009 Innovation Award for the PAM2-3G16 professional audio monitor.
The RTS Innovation Award recognizes outstanding achievement in the development of new technologies. The PAM2-3G16 won the Gizmo Award in the Hardware Device category, which recognizes the introduction of hardware that makes a major, “concrete” contribution to the industry need in terms of functionality, ease of assembly, integration, maintenance, understanding and usability, whether professional or consumer.
In making the presentation, RTS Innovation Awards chair Jeff Henry said, “The jury recognized that getting audio right these days is in many cases becoming more tricky than video and this new audio monitor brings real operational convenience to the increasingly hectic broadcast environment.”
Designed and developed by TSL and its partner Celtic Audio, the PAM2 3G16 is a compact 2U multi channel audio and video monitor unit that reportedly provides advanced and previously unavailable audio monitoring functionality and performance.
The multi-standard, multi-format PAM2-3G16 simplifies multichannel audio monitoring using preset menus and shortcut keys. It also offers user selectable scales, ballistics, range of standard input/output signals supported and the ability to intelligently dissect and monitor any multichannel audio signal structure from mixed mono, stereo and 5.1 surround.
TSL Professional Products General Manager Chris Exelby said, “This is a deeply gratifying award from a prestigious organization, which validates our mission to provide professional technology and service derived from more than 25 years’ experience in the field. It is a credit to our engineers and product managers, who have listened closely and delivered a level of technical excellence that our customers worldwide have been seeking. The end result is a new product that is by far the most advanced and intuitive in its sector.”
The award was announced and presented to TSL at a gala ceremony sponsored by BBC, BSkyB, ITV, Microsoft, and Virgin Media Television at BAFTA headquarters in London on November 10.
