UK - Broadweigh Bluetooth is now an award-winning product - despite launching just one week ago. The product which made its debut on the A.C. Entertainment stand at the ABTT Theatre Show in Alexandra Palace, was awarded the Widget of the Year accolade at the annual awards ceremony.
The judging panel, which comprised an experienced group of working practitioners and industry peers, comments: "As a quick way to provide monitoring of small rigs, the Broadweigh load cell shackle - in conjunction with a Bluetooth connected device running the Broadweigh app - is exceptionally useful for those touring shows that require up to 12 points of rigging. The App also sums selected load cells to enable a maximum load to be identified. Use of this product will greatly speed up prep days."
Kelly Voysey, sales and marketing manager at Mantracourt Electronics, Broadweigh's parent company added: "We are delighted to receive this year's widget award at the show. Our aim was to bring a useful and affordable tool to a theatre technician's tool box - which would provide a clear picture of what is happening on the rig.”
She continued: "As a design and manufacturing company, our ethos is to bring intelligent, usable products to market. We believe the Broadweigh Bluetooth system fills a gap in the load monitoring solutions currently available. We look forward to bringing more Broadweigh innovations to our customers."
Johnny Marshall, senior rigging sales executive for A.C. Entertainment, Broadweigh's product partner in the UK, adds: "The Broadweigh Bluetooth shackle had a fantastic launch day with plenty of interest on our stand. This was topped off by the product winning the ABTT Widget of the Year Award.”
