NAB2003 Pick Hits Winners

Each year for the past 18 years, Broadcast Engineering readers have selected the most innovative and exciting products from each NAB show. Broadcast Engineering’s Pick Hits are the most distinguished and longest running awards given as a part of the NAB convention.

The judges are readers of Broadcast Engineering magazine and working professionals in the broadcast, post and network and satellite industries. To protect the integrity of awards, they remain anonymous throughout the judging process. Broadcast Engineering’s editors and publisher do not select the products and technology.

Products must be new and not shown at a previous NAB convention. They must have some positive impact on the intended user’s everyday work and offer substantial improvement over previous technology.

Reflecting the increased number of NAB exhibitors and new technology, we've expanded the Broadcast Engineering Pick Hits to 40 winners.

For complete information on this year’s 40 Pick Hit winners read below or visit to learn more about all the winners.
