TV Technology Announces STAR & Mario Award Recipients for NAB2006
April 27, 2006
Falls Church, VA - TV Technology has announced the winners for the coveted STAR and Mario Awards presented at NAB2006. Now in its seventh year, the STAR Awards (for Superior Technology Award Recipient) are designed to celebrate and showcase the preeminent technological innovations available to the broadcast industry. A panel of judges consisting of TV Technology editors and columnists reviewed a variety of products, examined the technical applications and their overall contribution to the industry, and then submitted their award nominees. "Our panel of editors walked the show floor in search of innovative and ground-breaking new products," said Tom Butts, TV Technology Editor. "The products and technology we selected made the cut -- they demonstrated their ability to help advance the acquisition and dissemination of audio and video in the professional video marketplace." Organized in 1993, the Mario Awards were established to recognize manufacturers whose products represent significant technical breakthroughs -- many of these products have gone on to significantly impact the future of video technology. The awards are named after Mario Orazio, a pseudonym for a nameless engineer and a renowned technology columnist for TV Technology who pens the industry's most widely read column "The Masked Engineer." The awards are given out annually at the NAB convention to companies that demonstrate forward thinking and technical excellence in their products.
