TV One Wins 'Systems Product Of The Year' Award

TV One has received the Systems Product of the Year 2009 AV Award for their 1T-C2-750 Dual DVI Scaler.

These annual AV Awards are judged by an independent panel of industry experts and TV One said that they were "extremely pleased" to have won this prestigious award based on the technological merit of their product.

Steven Mattingly, Managing Director of TV One, was there to collect the award during the ceremony at the London Hilton on October 9 and stated: "It is a privilege and an honour to accept this award on behalf of TV One. We are extremely proud to receive it."

Key to the success of this winning product was the integral CORIO2 scaling engines that not only provide high-quality scaling of two separate DVI-I inputs, but also dual Picture-in-Picture windowing, seamless switching, keying and overlaying, image stores for logos and testcards, editable presets and the ability to add custom resolutions for unusual applications.

Another clever feature of TV One's exclusive CORIO2 technology is that instead of being committed to a chip, the firmware of the product is loaded into a FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array).

This FPGA allows for the internal reprogramming of a unit by a simple download of new firmware meaning that a CORIO2 product can always be upgraded with new features that may not have been available at the time that the unit was purchased, but have since been added to new products.

Mattingly continued: "The CORIO2 Technology behind the 1T-C2-750 is among the best scaling technology available in the industry today, and to be recognised for this is wonderful.

"It is a future-proof product with a wide range of features and it has been a great success since its launch earlier this year," he concluded.
