Broadcast Engineering Pick Hit awards honor 40 products, 34 companies at NAB2004

April 29, 2004

Broadcast Engineering magazine has announced the winners of its prestigious Broadcast Engineering Pick Hit awards for NAB2004.

This year, 40 products from 34 companies were honored with the award in recognition of their technological innovation. An anonymous group of judges who work in the broadcast, post, and network and satellite industries – not the editors or publisher of Broadcast Engineering - select products to be honored. Several criteria are used, including the product’s positive impact on the everyday work of the intended user, its technological improvement over previous products and its appropriateness in pricing for its intended users.

Celebrating their 20th anniversary, the Broadcast Engineering Pick Hit honor is the longest-running new product technology award granted in the industry.
