TV Combiner Manufacturers to Receive Emmys at CES

Last year Electronics Research (ERI), Dielectric Communications, Harris Broadcast and Micro Communications Inc. (MCI) were honored with Emmy awards for ATSC broadcast transmission system RF filters.

At the 2009 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Harris, MCI and Radio Frequency Systems (RFS) will be honored for "Pioneering RF Combiners for Adjacent Channels on Common Antenna Systems."

The awards will be presented in a ceremony at CES on Jan. 7, 2009.

With many companies, including broadcasters, facing budget cutbacks and travel restrictions, it will be interesting to see the impact of the economic slowdown on CES. One indication this year's CES may not be as packed as previous years is two weeks away from the show many hotels rooms are listed as available, some at discounted rates, on the CES Hotel Reservations Web page.
