MONTRÉAL, QUEBEC - April 26, 2019
Theatrixx Technologies announced today that its Theatrixx Reversible Converter system is a Best New Hardware Infrastructure Technology winner in the 2019 NAB Show Product of the Year Awards. The awards program is the first to officially recognize innovative new products showcased at the NAB Show, in Las Vegas, NV.
The future-proof Theatrixx Reversible Converter system is the natural extension of the award-winning xVision Converter line. Its modular design allows individual systems to be configured exactly as needed, and even reconfigured on-the-fly. There is a host of modules available - featuring SDI, HDMI, Fiber, HDBaseT and more - with new modules being added regularly. All modules can be inserted with inputs/outputs at either the front or the back of the unit and are enclosed to protect against static shock, dust and general wear and tear.
Virtually uninterrupted uptime is engineered with power supplies configured to switch over automatically in case of failure and LEDs at the front of the unit to indicate status. Mains power is delivered via dual locking PowerCON True1 connectors. Unbeatable redundancy is built in to the 8-bay, 3RU host unit, which features dual, oversized power supplies and gold-plated, redundant spring pins with magnetic retention to power the modules, eliminating fallible cabling and external power bricks.
Perfect for high-end installations rental, touring, broadcast or other applications requiring professional and reliable high-density video conversion/processing, the Theatrixx Reversible Converter system ushers the performing arts industry into a new era unencumbered by rack shelves, wall warts and Velcro.
NAB Show Product of the Year Awards are selected by a panel of industry experts. To be eligible for an award, nominated products and technologies needed to be on display at the 2019 NAB Show for the first time and available for delivery in calendar year 2019.

With the rollout of the Theatrixx Reversible Converter system, video conversion is no longer the weakest link in the signal chain."
