Have they won all the awards yet?
NewTek today announced that Streaming Media Readers have awarded the NewTek TriCaster™ produce line a 2009 Readers' Choice Award for Best Portable Encoding Appliance. Streaming Media, led by a team of recognized industry experts, surveyed more than 5,000 consumers to determine that NewTek TriCaster was among the best video and live streaming products across 22 categories.
"The Streaming Media Readers' Choice Awards are the only awards of their kind in the online video industry," says Eric Schumacher-Rasmussen, editor, Streaming Media magazine. "While other awards focus exclusively on content, this is the only awards program that honors the technology that makes it all possible, and it's definitely the only one where the people decide who wins. And this year, more than 5,000 votes were cast for more than 200 nominees. Clearly, people care deeply about the tools they use to get their jobs done.
"We want to thank video and live stream producers for choosing TriCaster products as the best among all portable live production solutions on the market," said Andrew Cross, executive vice president, engineering, NewTek Inc. “We’re continuing to bring innovative and groundbreaking products to the market, with the upcoming release of TriCaster TCXD300, HD portable live production solution. ”
