Advances and Achievements

I wanted to take a moment to congratulate the recipients of this year’s NAB Best of Show Awards from Digital Video magazine. There were so many interesting and innovative products on display this year, many of which are discussed in Oliver Peters’ excellent NAB Show wrap-up story starting on page 20. Some were amazing concepts waiting to be realized, some were clever solutions (the “Of course, why didn’t anyone think of that sooner?” category) and some were solid, considered advances in video technology.

Our Best of Show Awards are judged by a panel of engineers and industry experts on the criteria of innovation, feature set, cost efficiency, and performance in serving the industry. Only a small number of products are selected to receive a Best of Show Award from among hundreds of new products in competition, and it’s always fascinating to see what products are immediately (and frequently unanimously) awarded high scores by judges with different areas of expertise and experience. When an engineer, an industry advisor, a technology journalist and several videographers all agree on the excellence of a product, you can safely assume it will be important for you, our reader.

With that said, here are Digital Video magazine’s 2016 NAB Best of Show Award recipients.
