TV Technology Europe has announced the recipients for its STAR Awards, presented at IBC2009.
The STAR Award (Superior Technology Award Recipient) is designed to celebrate and showcase the preeminent technological innovations available to the broadcast industry. TV Technology Europe and NewBay Media staff reviewed a variety of products, examined the technical applications and their overall contribution to the industry, and then chose 25 winning products.
"STAR awards are given to interesting new products that help a user save money or accomplish a task in an easier way," said Mark Hallinger, Editor of TV Technology Europe. "The products selected help advance the industry--some were chosen because of technical novelty or innovation, some because they filled an important gap in the production or transmission chain, and some because they were just cool products."
