NAB Reflections: IABM Game Changer Award winners
The IABM announced the winners of its Game Changer Awards during a cocktail reception at the NAB Show in Las Vegas. Atomos with Shogun; Axon with its Neuron AV Bridging; Bridge Technology with VB288 Objective QoE Content Extractor; Grass Valley with GV Stratus; and SDN² with WARP took top honours at the event.
All winners are now to be considered for the IABM Peter Wayne Award for Design and Innovation to be presented at the IABM Annual International Business Conference and Awards in December. The panel of judges included John Ive, director of business development and technology at IABM; So Vang, vice president of Advance Technology; Tariq Islam, director of Advance Engineering at NAB; and Peter White, chief executive, IABM.
Winners were selected based on the innovation of their products and services, the benefits they bring to customers and the industry as a whole, as well as influence on the industry, impact potential over the next 12 months, and economic factors like ROI, cost of ownership and expected user savings.
“These awards are about recognising companies that challenge the status quo, by going beyond the accepted rules and conventions to deliver products and services that are, truly game changing,” says White.
