NAB Announces 2007 Engineering Achievement Award Winners
Washington - Feb 26, 2007 - Victor Tawil, senior vice president for Association for Maximum Service Television (MSTV) and Louis A. King, chairman of the board for Kintronic Laboratories, will be presented with the 2007 NAB Engineering Achievement Award during the NAB Technology Luncheon on April 18 at NAB2007. The awards recognize outstanding achievements and contributions in the broadcast engineering profession.
As senior vice president of MSTV, Tawil provides technology and telecommunication policy guidance to MSTV's 400-plus member TV stations. Prior to joining MSTV, Tawil worked at the FCC, where he held positions in the Office of Science and Technology specializing in the field of spectrum management, tropospheric propagation and system engineering. During his 14-year tenure at the FCC, Tawil worked extensively in the areas of broadcasting, satellite, wireless communications and new communication technologies. He also served as a U.S. delegate on International and ITU Plenipotentiary Conferences and bilateral negotiations.
King has made contributions to the radio broadcast industry as an inventor, educator, consulting engineer and manufacturer. After receiving his first patent for a pulse transformer design, King served as an educator at Clemson College. He spent four years at the Radio Corporation of America, (RCA) where he was instrumental in the design of its first air-cooled 50kW AM transmitter and received the patent for the bistable multi-vibrator, which was better known as the flip-flop circuit commonly used as the basic switching device in early computers. King later began a consulting business that eventually led to the development of Kintronic Laboratories, an RF equipment manufacturer with customers in all 50 states and more than 100 countries.
Past recipients of the Radio Engineering Award include Radio magazine Technical Editor and SBE Founder John Battison, Glynn Walden, Geoff Mendenhall and Bob Orban.
