NewBay Media’s Best of Show winners announced19 September 2014
NewBay Media has announced the winners from its first ever IBC Best of Show Awards in the TVBEurope category.
Having been inundated with nominations prior to this year’s show at the Amsterdam RAI, TVBEurope engaged an independent panel of judges who travelled the length and breadth of the cavernous IBC halls to examine each product entry in depth. The judging criteria assessed nominations for their design, features, cost efficiency, and performance in serving industry professionals.
TVBEurope’s executive editor, James McKeown, explained, “We’ve had an overwhelming response to our first Best of Show Awards programme for IBC, and we’re delighted to be recognising some truly innovative and impressive products that have been on display at this year’s show.”
The Best of Show Awards were distributed across NewBay Media’s titles, with winners selected by magazine category. The categories included Audio Media, Installation, PSNEurope, Radio World, TVBEurope, and TV Technology Europe.
“We are enormously proud of our Best of Show recipients,” added TVBEurope Publisher, Steve Connolly. “Recognition with an award at IBC2014 from NewBay Media is a strong vote of confidence from our leading industry publications.”
