We're proud to present entries for the 3rd annual Broadcast Engineering Excellence Awards. These awards recognize innovation and quality in the design and construction of broadcast and production facilities. This year's entries cover a wide range of systems integrators, manufacturers and facilities.

And, as before, Broadcast Engineering readers will help select the winners. Here's how you can vote, and win too!

When evaluating the facilities, please consider several issues:

  • Unique application of technology
  • Meeting owner/client goals

You can win too!
