The awards – for a variety of products – represent the scope of Cobalt’s reach to all segments of a market that spans from Broadcast to Streaming to Pro AV and hits every corner of the globe.

“Cobalt celebrated our 25th anniversary at NAB and these four awards are a true indicator of how the company has grown in size and technology over the years,” said Chris Shaw, COO. “These four bring us to a total of about 40 earned since we were established in 1997 – we won our first the very same year the company launched – and it’s especially meaningful that we received so many at our first major in-person industry event since 2019. We’re thrilled to be back with our colleagues and honored that our latest solutions have been recognized for their innovation by both NAB and Future judges.”

As Easter Approaches, RF Venue Technology is the Choice of Church Integrators for the Big Events

Wireless audio is an essential component of all styles of modern worship, from contemporary to traditional, but it takes on even higher levels of importance for special and seasonal event production. That will be on display on Sunday, April 17, this year, when thousands of churches worldwide undertake their annual Easter productions. These will range from simply some additional musicians onstage to elaborate, professional-caliber theatrical events. For all of them, the wireless microphones that they rely on for every service during the year have to perform flawlessly for often much larger congregations. Special events often require an extended presentation space, meaning flawless wireless performance is needed in parts of a sanctuary not typically used on most Sundays, and some churches will add a dozen or more additional channels of wireless for more robust productions that may run for a week or longer. Simple or sophisticated, no matter what the special event calls for, AV systems integrators can rely on technology and products from RF Venue, Inc., a leading global developer and manufacturer of antenna and RF communications products, to assure their house-of-worship customers that their wireless audio will meet every challenge.

When officials at West Chester University (WCU) were looking to adapt a virtual education model, they turned to IMS Technology Services to engineer a solution that most closely simulated in-person learning or better. IMS evaluated several options and ultimately designed and implemented a system based around the CV610-UB USB PTZ camera from Marshall Electronics.

“The classrooms at WCU were designed and built for in-person learning and had to adapt to become a backdrop for virtual learning,” says William Kiley, technical advisor, IMS. “The primary factors in IMS’ selection of the CV610-UB were its degree of flexibility, ease of use and excellent image quality. We have been spec’ing Marshall cameras for many years and knew it would be a perfect solution for this application.”
