Broadcast Engineering announces 2011 NAB Show Pick Hit winners

Broadcast Engineering has announced the winners of its Pick Hits awards for the 2011 NAB Show. With a long history, Pick Hits are the most prestigious technical awards given at the NAB Show. A panel of independent judges toured the show floor for three days, looking for innovative products and technology. The judges then met to make their selections based on several criteria, including the technical and financial improvements the products can bring to a facility's operation. Our editors and publishers have no vote in the selection process.

Congratulations to the following manufacturers for their creative technology solutions!
