The IBC 2014 Best of Show Award program recognized outstanding products exhibited at IBC2014 in Amsterdam. Winners were selected by panels of professional users and editors based on descriptions provided by exhibitors and on the judges' inspection at the convention. TV Technology Europe announced the winners on Sept. 16. All nominated and winning products will be recognized in a post-show digital Best of Show Program Guide delivered to readers of NewBay Media's TV Technology, Digital Video, Video Edge, Radio, and Radio World magazines.

The ViBE XT1000 supports up to 54 HD channels or 180 SD channels with transcoding from any format to any format including MPEG-2 and MPEG-4/AVC, making it ideal for linear broadcasts on cable, IPTV, DTH, and DTTV services, as well as multi-screen delivery.
