Broadcast Engineering announced its 2005 Pick Hits winners at NAB2005 last month.
Winners from the world of audio include:
Handheld digital audio recorder
Designed for broadcast journalism fieldwork, this recorder captures high-quality sound through the built-in or external mic. Various audio file formats can be selected, and audio can be edited on the recorder itself and transferred via USB. The recorder includes an FM radio with 20 presets.
Grace Distribution PIN-MIC
Billed as the only lav that hides in plain sight, the Pin-Mic lavalier microphone is designed so no lav cables or mic clips are visible on the wearer. It utilizes a three-pronged back-plate that pierces through fabric to align with three holes on the back of the microphone, routing the wire out of view. The Pin-Mic is compatible with every wireless transmitter on the market or can be hard-wired.
Sierra Automated Systems Rubicon
The Rubicon audio console offers seamless integration with Sierra’s SAS 32KD digital audio network and is extensively customizable, from four to 40 modules. A full router input select is available on each module, and users have options for a floating LED VU/peak meter bridge or a VGA display.
