Bittree ProStudio Audio Patchbays Win Two Coveted ‘Best of Show’ Awards at 2018 NAB Show

Best Patchbay

High-quality, dependable ProStudio PS96DB25F and PS96DB25i honored for innovation, rich features, cost efficiency and performance

The 40th anniversary celebrations of patching systems innovator Bittree were further amplified at the 2018 NAB Show, as the company’s ProStudio PS96DB25 audio patchbay series was honored with a pair of Best of Show Awards from NewBay Media. Highlighting the advantages of the ProStudio family for both end users and systems integrators, Bittree was presented with awards from NewBay publications Pro Sound News (dedicated to the business of the professional audio industry) and Sound & Video Contractor (the definitive technical resource for A/V integrators, contractors, dealers and consultants).

Enabling users to easily define and modify their audio signal flows while providing the cleanest sound possible, Bittree’s ProStudio family brings the company’s renowned patchbay quality and rugged reliability to price points accessible to everyone from broadcasters and elite studio engineers to hobbyist musicians.

The front-programmable ProStudio PS96DB25F offers these benefits in a 1.5RU rackmount form factor with 96 TT (bantam) jacks in a high-density 2x48 configuration, and features 12 DB25 rear connectors for interfacing with Avid® ProTools® and Tascam® gear. The internally-configurable ProStudio PS96DB25i packs similar connectivity into just 1RU of rack space. Both models deliver their sound superior quality in heavy-duty designs that are built for dependability and durability in demanding environments.

“The ProStudio PS96DB25F and ProStudio PS96DB25i were designed to fill a void in the market for professional-grade, rackmount audio patchbays at affordable pricing, and these awards are signs that we’ve succeeded in meeting those goals,” said Ari Baron, general manager at Bittree. “We are honored that the judges selected the ProStudio series for these accolades, and look forward to continuing to empower our customers’ studios with more innovations in the future.”

NewBay’s Best of Show Awards are evaluated by engineers and industry experts, and are selected based on innovation, feature set, cost efficiency and performance in serving the industry. 

“The NewBay Best of Show Awards at NAB are now in their fifth year,” said Paul McLane, NewBay managing director, content. “The program seeks to shine a spotlight on relevant innovations in technology as seen around the million-square-foot exhibit floor of the industry’s top trade show. The list of 2018 winners and nominees gives real insight into where and how rapidly our media tech businesses are evolving.”
