Apple wins 2 awards at NAB

Apple today won two awards at the 2005 Convention. Apple's Final Cut Pro 5 was honored in the Content Creation Category and QuickTime Broadcaster was honored in the Content Management category. The products were recognized in the third-annual Awards for Innovation in Media (AIMs), which recognized technological innovations that "best addressed current and upcoming issues in the electronic media industry by boosting efficiency, increasing user flexibility and creativity, and lowering cost." The top five products within each of the Content Creation, Content Management, and Content Delivery categories received recognition during NAB's Technology Luncheon, held on Wednesday, April 20.

Within the Content Creation category, Apple's Final Cut Pro 5, Avid's Media Composer Adrenaline HD 2.1, Avid's Symphony Nitris, the JVC GY-HD100U 3-CCD HD Camera Recorder, and the Sony HDCAM SR/HDCAM Dual Format Recorder received the highest number of attendee votes. Each were awarded a 2005 NAB AIM.

Winners in the Content Management category were Apple's QuickTime Broadcaster, Global Microwave Systems' High Definition Messenger Transmitter (HDMT), NewTek's TriCaster, Omneon's Spectrum Media Server, and the Smart AV Smart Console.

"NAB attendees are specially positioned to recognize the hottest products emerging into the marketplace. The NAB would like to extend its congratulations to all of the 2005 AIM winners who received this esteemed recognition," said NAB President and CEO Edward O. Fritts.

A judging panel of editors from key industry publications will review the AIM-winning technologies and other new products exhibited at the show to select an additional winner within each product category. The 2005 "Editors' Choice" award winners will be announced on Thursday, April 28.

    Congrats, Apple...

    As much as I like Avid, FCP is just blowing them away in terms of getting your money's worth. That so much power should be in the hands of the people for $1200- it's just plain amazing. I hear the new sound processing stuff gives ProTools a run for its money too. Gosh...where was this stuff when I was a kid?!
