Sydney, Australia (April 29, 2005)–Smart AV received an NAB Award for Innovation in Media (AIM) at the NAB2005 Conference and Exhibition. As one of five companies receiving the highest number of attendee votes in the Content Management category–and the only pro audio product in any category–during the second-annual AIM program, Smart AV received AIM recognition for its Smart Console during the NAB Technology Luncheon held at the Las Vegas Convention Center on Wednesday, April 20.
“As professionals who are using broadcasting technologies day in and day out, NAB attendees are in a unique position 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.
The top five products within each of the Content Creation, Content Management, and Content Delivery categories received recognition with a 2005 AIM. Each winning product also will be eligible for further recognition when a judging panel composed of key industry editors reviews the AIM-winning technologies and other new products at the exhibition to select an overall winner within each product category. The 2005 Editors’ Choice Award winners will be announced on Thursday, April 28.
“We are so honoured to have received a 2005 AIM. The attendees’ recognition of our product is a true testament to its value in delivering improved efficiency to engineers mixing large numbers of audio sources in high-pressure situations,” said Joe Narai, Smart AV’s CEO. “We’d like to thank everyone who voted for us for recognizing the unique functionality our Smart Console provides.”
