CINCINNATI, November 18, 2014 — GatesAir’s legacy of innovation in over-the-air TV and radio broadcasting includes two Emmy awards and more than 238 US and Global patents. Last week, company executives recognized the innovators of GatesAir’s latest patents at a ceremony at the Oasis Conference Center in Cincinnati.
Following a keynote address from GatesAir CEO Phil Argyris, Chief Product Officer Rich Redmond led a presentation in recognition of the company’s recent patent awards. GatesAir engineers Wayne Duello, Dmitri Borodulin and George Cabrera were among those honored at the event.
Obtaining a patent is a long and tenacious process that requires a long-term commitment, with countless hours of hard work and dedication from the innovators. Mr. Duello received a patent for innovations in digital signal processing of digital modulations that reduce interference and strengthen robustness for over-the-air digital TV signals. Mr. Borodulin and Mr. Cabrera received patents for advancements in broadband, high-efficiency amplification for digital radio and television signals. These linchpin technologies will ensure continued quality improvements for viewers that receive free broadcasts powered by GatesAir digital transmission systems across radio, TV and mobile devices.
