Washington - Jan 17, 2011 - The NAB is accepting nominations for the 2011 NAB Technology Innovation Awards. First presented at the 2009 NAB Show, the NAB presents the award to organizations that bring advanced technology exhibits and demonstrations of significant merit to the NAB Show. The nominated exhibit should present advanced research and development projects in communications technologies that have not yet been commercialized.
Candidates for the Technology Innovation Awards must be organizations who are currently exhibiting at the NAB Show. The size of the organization is not a determining factor. Nominated projects may not be commercial products that have been offered for sale prior to or at the NAB Show. The merit of the technology exhibit is the sole factor to be taken into account. The entry deadline is March 4, 2011. The awards will be presented at the NAB Technology Luncheon on April 13, 2011, at the NAB Show in Las Vegas.
The 2010 winners were the Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI) and the Georgia Institute of Technology. The 2009 winners were the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT) and the NHK Science and Technical Research Laboratories.
