MediaPower NewsTouch Wins TV Technology Europe “STAR” Award at IBC 2013
AMSTERDAM – NewsTouch manufactured by MediaPower is the recipient of a 2013 STAR (Superior Technology Award Recipient) Award given by the editorial staff of TV Technology Europe magazine at the 2013 IBC convention.
NewsTouch is a standalone appliance dedicated to the live production of press clippings, web content, and recorded and live media files in the studio. It is a touch-based, multimedia presentation system for a live broadcasting environment. Using an electronic multitouch board, comments, markings, or drawings can easily be added to images, videos, or web pages, social network posts, making it an extremely useful solution and giving the journalist or anchor more control of a news program or presentation, independent of a production crew.
The STAR Award (Superior Technology Award Recipient) is designed to celebrate and showcase technological innovations available to the broadcast industry. TV Technology Europe's editor reviewed a variety of products, examined the technical applications and their overall contribution to the industry, and then chose 25 winners.
“STAR awards are given to interesting new products that help a user save money or accomplish a task in an easier way,” said Mark Hallinger, Editor of TV Technology Europe. “This year in particular we also looked for smaller incremental improvements in established products, as these improvements generally reflect a manufacturer responding to customer input, a laudable thing.”
“The products selected help advance the industry----some were chosen because of technical novelty or innovation, some because they filled an important gap in the production or transmission chain, and some because they were just cool products.”
MediaPower enables media workflows by providing solutions for media content production and delivery across multiple platforms. MediaPower was founded in 1993 as an integrator of certified networking and storage solutions for the media industry, such as SeaChange International (now XOR Media), DataDirect Networks, and Dalet. www.media-power.it
