News Alert: XRACER wins "Best of IBC 2012" Award
Friedrichshafen, October 30, 2012 – ND SatCom's DSNG System “XRACER” has been announced a winner of the “Best of IBC 2012” award.
The IBC (International Broadcasting Convention) in Amsterdam is the premier annual event for professionals engaged in the creation, management and delivery of entertainment and news content worldwide. Among the thousands of products exhibited by 1,400 exhibitors, the “Best of IBC” prize is awarded to a selection of the most interesting innovations, especially those that make broadcasters lives easier, cheaper and more efficient.
The award winning XRACER DSNG system is an ND SatCom product, based on the VW Amarok vehicle and allows dual transmissions through live video uplinks on the move, paired with a SKYRAY Compact antenna for static set ups. The solution is small, stylish and cost-efficient and allows both video data and location coordinates to be transmitted while driving, even during speeds of up to 120 km/h. After reaching the destination of interest the SKYRAY compact antenna system is immediately available, using automatic pointing, for high quality transmissions of the broadcasting content. At the push of one button all system parameters are up and running, saving valuable time when news happens. A tablet-pc app allows the crew to operate the XRACER remotely.
“We are very happy to have created a solution that makes the news reporter’s job easier and faster. I am sure that the design and handling of the integrated system as well as the driver’s comfort leave little more to desire. And on top of that, it is just a really stylish vehicle”, says Axel Daiber, Head of ND SatCom’s International Sales & Marketing.
