SHELTON, Conn.

The awards ceremony took place on Wednesday, July 4th, at the De Vere Wokefield Estate in Berkshire, England.

The Innovation Impact Award honors companies that have significantly advanced the broadcasting industry through innovation in the past year. This accolade recognizes Anton/Bauer’s exceptional achievements in developing the first sodium battery specifically designed for the motion picture and television industry. Salt-E Dog exemplifies forward-thinking and sustainable technology, providing a groundbreaking solution to traditional power sources.

With no noise and zero pollution, Salt-E Dog supports productions in meeting net-zero sustainability goals without compromising on quality or safety.

Anton/Bauer’s legacy of industry innovation is well-established, with notable achievements including the introduction of the first camera battery mounting system, the industry’s first viewfinder battery fuel gauge, and the industry-standard P-Tap. The brand’s pioneering efforts have already been recognized with both an Emmy and an Oscar for outstanding achievements in science and engineering.

“As sustainability and reducing carbon emissions become increasingly vital in the entertainment industry, Anton/Bauer is committed to leading the way in minimizing environmental impact,” said Andrew Hutton, Head of Products at Anton/Bauer. “Salt-E Dog represents a significant opportunity for film and television production to reduce greenhouse gas emissions while offering a safer and more efficient alternative to fossil fuel or traditional battery options.”

“We are privileged to receive the Innovation Impact Award from the Royal Television Society,” added Nicola Dal Toso, the Divisional CEO of Videndum Production Solutions. “I would like to thank the judges and the RTS for recognizing the Anton/Bauer team’s dedication to sustainable product innovation.”
