The IABM selects its game-changers
We tend to avoid selecting best of shows at SVG Europe – too much potential conflict etc – but we’re quite happy to highlight other people’s impartial efforts. The IABM (International Association of Broadcasting Manufacturers) for instance has launched its inaugural IABM Game-Changer Awards, which recognise five products deemed to have the greatest potential to revolutionize the industry.
So, without further ado, this year’s winners are:
- Blackmagic Design – Cinema Camera
- CAST Group – BlackTrax 6D
- Dolby Laboratories – 3D
- Quantel – revolutionQ
- Sony – HDC-2500
“Once again, the 2012 NAB Show has proved to be a critical event for the launch of innovative broadcast products and solutions,” said IABM Director General, Peter White (thus presenting the other side of the coin to our own argument: NAB 2012 – Was That It?). “Our judging panel had an exciting field from which to select winners for the IABM Game-Changer Awards, and we are confident that the products and companies we’ve honored today will be among those that fuel the continued success of our industry.”
A panel of impartial experts from across the globe, none of whom are IABM members, reviewed products and solutions during the first two days of the show and selected this year’s award-winners.
