“We are all well aware of how quickly our industry is evolving, and with that awareness come new challenges for our customers. Currently, our sector is spending about 14 percent of sales revenues on R&D as broadcast and media technology vendors seek new and ingenious ways of solving these challenges,” said IABM Director General Peter White. “The IABM Awards for Design and Innovation program identifies some of the very best of the new products that have come to market in the past year and singles them out for the recognition they deserve. Our award finalists are at the forefront of this exciting surge in broadcast technology innovation. This year’s 10 finalists come from a highly competitive field, and we look forward to announcing the five award winners, including the recipient of the coveted Peter Wayne award, at IBC.”

Open to all global manufacturers and suppliers, the IABM Design and Innovation Awards recognize products that offer significant solutions or new opportunities for the broadcast supply industry. The judging panel scored all entries against the level of innovation that each promises, and the 10 finalists for this year’s awards emerged through a rigorous review process. The top award is named in memory of Peter Wayne, a highly respected industry figure who, through his career and participation in many groups including the IABM, made outstanding contributions to broadcasting.

All judges on the international panel are independent and none is affiliated with a vendor company or similar operation.
