Cobalt Digital’s Blue Box Group is the recipient of the 2012 Government Video SALUTE Award presented by the editorial staff of Government Video magazine during the 2012 Government Video Expo. BlueBox is Cobalt’s new line of interface converter boxes that deliver peak performance from low-cost, compact modules.
Founded in 2003, Government Video’s SALUTE Award is designed to honor and showcase innovative technologies, products and services for the public sector demonstrated at Government Video Expo. Industry professionals, Government Video editors and contributors nominate candidates for Government Video SALUTE Awards with the decisions on the final awards made by Government Video’s editors.
“The Government Video SALUTE recognises some of the innovative products and services for video professionals on display at GV Expo. We are proud to call attention to these tools that specifically help public-sector video professionals support the missions of their agencies and provide better information to the citizenry,” said J.J. Smith, editor of Government Video.
Cobalt’s easy-to-operate BlueBox modules attach easily and securely to cameras or host device chassis for dependable, uncomplicated installation. They receive power directly via USB from video monitors or other equipment without bulky and non-secure “wall wart” adapters.
“Cobalt recognised the need for first-class quality and affordable signal conversion in a compact package,” commented Chris Shaw, Cobalt EVP of Sales & Marketing. “BlueBox delivers exceptional performance from a small footprint with a full feature list packed into one convenient converter box; perfect for applications that need to stretch the budget but not compromise on quality.”
