Pedro CĂłrdoba, winner of the contest 1,000 antennas 1,000 solutions: The DAT HD BOSS offers a great advantage to the installerâ
The French installer Guillaume Francois and the Italian Andrea Gasparini received second and third prize, respectively, at the international eventÂ organised by Televes to reward the best solutions to incidences related to digital terrestrial television reception.
Â Santiago de Compostela, 2nd June 2010. Manuel MartĂnez, Televesâ Sales General Manager, has presented Pedro CĂłrdoba Osta, of A.I.T. Marbella, the prize as the overall winner of the international contest 1,000 antennas, 1,000 solutions. This contest was organised by the company to reward the best solutions to incidences in digital terrestrial television (DTT) reception.
The award ceremony and the presentation of the prize, an H45 Advance portable field strength meter (valued at over 4,000 euros) were held at Televesâ headquarters, in Santiago de Compostela. The event also received the participation of Manuel ParajuĂĄ, Televesâ National Sales Manager, and Sergio MartĂn, Communications Manager of the company.
Pedro CĂłrdoba was the winner of the contest because of his thorough study of the incidences of the tides on the fading of the antennaâs terrestrial signal reception in coastal areas, and how the DAT HD BOSS antenna achieves better mitigation of this effect, thus guaranteeing perfect image and sound quality. âDue to its capacity to automatically offer a stable output signal level, whatever the input signal, the DAT HD BOSS offers a great advantage to the installerâ, CĂłrdoba indicated after receiving his prize. The fact of the matter is he has benefited from this advantage on numerous occasions, because, as Pedro CĂłrdoba indicated, in the area where he carries out his work, in the South of Spain, oscillations of up to 15 or 20 dB are recorded.
The report presented by Pedro CĂłrdoba was rated as âmagnificentâ by Manuel MartĂnez, who pointed out that the DAT HD BOSS was designed with the objective of being the best antenna on the market, and highlighted that it is a âglobalâ product, as the company commercialises it in all markets in which it is present, over 80 countries across the five continents. Televesâ Sales General Manager defined the antenna as the result of the âmanufacturing vocationâ and âthe passion with which Televes tackles its projectsâ.
Before receiving his prize as winner of the contest 1,000 antennas, 1,000 solutions, Pedro CĂłrdoba went on an extensive visit around Televesâ facilities, at the end of which he said to be âvery impressedâ, highlighting aspects such as the automation of the manufacturing processes and the quality controls.
Second prize for France and third for Italy
For his part, Juan Virel, Managing Director of Televes France, awarded Guillaume Francois, professional installer of the town of CondĂ©-sur-VirĂ©, in the region of Manche, with the second prize of the contest, consisting of a H45 Compact HD portable field strength meter, valued at 3,000 euros. Guillaume Francois obtained the award for his work which documents an installation in a shed with serious problems for reception, coverage and signal bouncing.
In the same way, Andrea Gasparini, from the company Television System, located in Verona, received by the hand of Hugo Botas, Managing Director of Televes Italy, the third prize of the contest 1,000 antennas, 1,000 solutions, for his study on a complex hotel installation in which the DAT HD BOSS antenna is the main element.
