LAS VEGAS, NV – April 9, 2014 – Bitcentral’s CORE Active Panel and Mobile Contribution are each recipients of one of the industry’s most prestigious technology honors, NewBay Media’s Best of Show Award. The awards were presented at the 2014 NAB Show in Las Vegas by TV Technology magazine.

The Best of Show Awards are evaluated by a panel of engineers and industry experts, and are selected based on innovation, feature set, cost efficiency and performance in serving the industry.

This is the second consecutive year Bitcentral has won an award at NAB. Last year Bitcentral was presented with a Star Award for it’s CORE:news modular news production system.

“It has been another great year at NAB for Bitcentral. We are honored that our innovation has again been recognized with these prestigious awards,” said Rick Young, Vice President of Sales and Product Strategy for Bitcentral.

Only a small number of products were chosen for NewBay Media’s Best of Show Award from among hundreds of new products in competition.

The CORE Active Panel enables users to drive critical production processes from within their most familiar tools – iNews and ENPS. CORE Active Panel includes a simple to use management panel that powers the surfacing and discovery of raw, works-in-progress and finished assets. Active Video Wires further enable discovery and media transport via simplified drag-and-drop all from within the newsroom computer system.

Mobile Contribution enables teams working in the field to instantaneously deliver video, images, scripts and other metadata back to the facility. Items can be immediately attached and available for playout or one-click publishing to digital platforms. Reporters and crews in the field are now able to stay in the field longer and turn more stories every day.

“We are enormously proud of our Best of Show recipients,” says NewBay Media Broadcast & Video Group Vice President & Group Publisher Eric Trabb. “Recognition with an award at the NAB Show from NewBay Media’s Broadcast & Video Group is a strong vote of confidence and admiration from our leading industry publications.”

NAB 2014 concludes on April 10, 2014. Bitcentral’s award-winning solutions are on display at the Las Vegas Convention Center in the South Hall, Booth SU 5510.
