The 13th Annual Government Video Expo held in Washington, D.C. Nov. 30 through Dec. 2 attracted 133 companies, and those firms showcased an incredible number of cutting-edge products.
The editorial staff of NewBay Media—which publishes Government Video—saw plenty of products that caught our interest; or that we thought to be clever; or that just plain impressed us. But from the hundreds of products, only ten were singled out to receive the Government Video SALUTE Award for 2010.
In alphabetical order are the companies that received the award—which were presented by Government Video editor J.J. Smith—followed by their winning products.
