Editors and writers at StreamingMedia.com selected the five new products they found most impressive, and that promised to do the most to push the online video industry forward in the year ahead.

The DV Black Diamond Awards recognize outstanding achievement in the advancement of video technology. A select panel of engineers, editors, and production and post professionals joined the magazine staff to judge the awards.

Now celebrating its 13th anniversary, the STAR Awards are designed to celebrate and showcase the preeminent technological innovations available to the media industry. A judging panel of broadcast industry experts reviewed a variety of products and services, examined the technical applications and their overall contribution to the industry.

The British Columbia Professional Videographers Association (BCPVA) is Canada’s oldest and largest professional video production association. Each year, delegates scour NAB for innovative content creation and shooting technologies and choose those products deemed most helpful to videographers looking to advance their businesses.
