FREZZOLINI ELECTRONICS INC. (FREZZI ENERGY SYSTEMS) RECEIVES AN EMMY FOR OUTSTANDING ACHIEVEMENT FOR DEVELOPMENT OF ADVANCED BATTERY TECHNOLOGY FOR ENG / EFP OCTOBER 3, 2000
Hawthorne, NJ - Frezzi Energy Systems was awarded an Emmy by The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences at a black-tie dinner ceremony in New York City. Frezzi was honored for Outstanding Achievement in Engineering Development of Advanced Battery Technology for ENG/EFP news gathering. "The National Academy's Scientific and Technological Advancement Awards highlight the impact that technological breakthroughs have had on the transmission, recording or reception of television," said John Cannon, president of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.
James Crawford, president of Frezzi, accepted the award. "We are proud to be recognized as innovators by our industry and peers," said Jim Crawford. Frezzi was recognized for its contribution in pioneering advanced batteries and chargers for the ENG/EFP cameras from their inceptions until present day.
Frezzi's illustrious history began in the earliest days of broadcasting with the development of portable lighting and battery power. Since the inception of news broadcasts, Frezzi has worked with the ever-changing technology, beginning with film news, to the latest digital cameras. By designing the most advanced lighting and power equipment that meet the rugged requirements of field news gathering, Frezzi continues their objectives.
The Emmy was awarded for Frezzi's innovative work when broadcasting changed from film to video format. As video became the standard, Frezzi made the smooth transition and became the first company to design reliable and dependable portable lights and batteries for video cameras.
One challenge that Frezzi faced with the advent of Television News was that video cameras required a dual power source, as compared to the typical single ended supplies of today. Frezzi reviewed the new systems and developed battery packs specifically designed for individual camera manufacturers to accommodate their power requirements.
Today, the company continues to innovate new products for the broadcast industry. These include advanced batteries, chargers, portable and location lighting in both quartz and HMI formats. Frezzi has also been a qualified source for the US Department of Defense under various government contracts. Frezzi Energy Systems is a family owned company located in Hawthorne, NJ, in business for over 60 years with a dedication to the TV broadcast industry.
