NAB 2019 is officially in the books, and there is plenty of praise to go around. Here is a roundup of some the big award winners from the show, including Grass Valley, Panasonic, Ross Video, and Quantum.

Grass Valley Underlines Position as Frontrunner With Award Wins

Grass Valley, a Belden Brand, reiterated how its solutions help content creators, broadcasters and media organizations produce brilliant content. Two newly launched Grass Valley solutions, Grass Valley Creative Grading (GVCG) and GV STRATUS One, each brought home a Future Best of Show award, highlighting Grass Valley's commitment to technology brilliance and bringing storytelling to the forefront. The Future Best of Show award honors outstanding new products exhibited at the NAB Show.

GVCG is unique in delivering intuitive, universal control that was previously unavailable to camera shaders. This innovative control panel and tablet application redefines the human interface, putting the user in full control of the creative power of Grass Valley cameras. As the number of adjustments a camera shader is required to make grows exponentially, many important features that can help address the reality of broadcast conditions are not easily accessible in today's user interfaces. GVCG ensures that these functions are made available in a way that makes sense to camera shaders - regardless of their training or experience.

The highly versatile GV STRATUS One combines the next generation technology of GV STRATUS software with applications from GVRE transcoding, GV I/O servers, and EDIUS editing into a comprehensive, single box. This compact 2RU solution streamlines collaborative workflows, allowing customers to expand content creation without adding headcount. GV STRATUS One handles every aspect of the content management workflow from ingest, playout and recording through to transcoding and asset management. It also supports streaming to the web client and helps broadcasters overcome resource constraints to get content to viewers fast.

Panasonic's Single-Chip Color Camera Honored with Emmy Award for Technology & Engineering Achievement

The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) has honored the Panasonic Corporation with a Technology and Engineering Emmy Award for Pioneering Development of the Single-Chip Color Camera. The Awards ceremony took place last evening in partnership with the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) at the NAB 2019 Show.

The NATAS' committee determined that the genesis of the single-imager color video camera primarily took place between the proposal of a color filter array (CFA) in 1974 by Peter Dillon and the first commercial product from Hitachi in 1981, during which time Panasonic had done extensive development in realizing a single-chip interlace video camera including prototypes and publication. Panasonic's core contribution was the color difference line-sequential CFA. This innovative approach was tolerant to interlace scanning, and relied on complementary colors that improved sensitivity and could easily be used to generate the Y, Pb Pr components required for a broadcast-type video signal.

Ross Video's Ultrix IP Platform, Ultritouch Control System, Carbonite Ultra UHD Recognized at NAB 2019

Ultrix IP and Ultritouch, the latest additions to Ross Video's Ultrix routing/AV processing platform, have been awarded Future Best of Show Awards from Government Video magazine and TV Technology respectively.

The Ultrix IP IO board allows customers to route and process signals via both IP & SDI transport streams agnostically using industry standards into Ultrix, the market's most powerful and integrated software-defined platform.

Ultritouch is an incredibly flexible new touchscreen systems control and monitoring panel designed to help operators easily control and move between products and applications while maintaining the speed and fidelity of the equipment they are controlling. In addition, due to its integration with Ross Video's network and control system DashBoard, Ultritouch controls a host of other Ross Video equipment and 3rd party devices.

Also, the Carbonite Ultra UHD, an upgrade to the latest Carbonite Ultra production switcher from Ross Video, has been decorated with a Future Best of Show Award from TV Technology Magazine as well as an inaugural NAB Product of the Year Award.

Carbonite Ultra UHD unlocks the 12G/UHD functionality of the feature-rich Carbonite Ultra production switcher, making it the definitive choice for UHD production applications. Both the Future Best of Show Awards and the new 2019 NAB Show Product of the Year Awards recognize the most significant and promising new products and technologies being exhibited at the Show.

Quantum's F-Series NVMe Storage Garners Two Industry Awards

Quantum's new F-Series NVMe storage arrays received two industry awards during the 2019 NAB Show in Las Vegas. The F-Series was named Best New Storage Technology winner in the 2019 NAB Show Product of the Year Awards, and also received the ProductionHUB Award of Excellence.

The Quantum F-Series is a high-performance, highly available and reliable storage array designed for studio editing, rendering, and other performance-intensive workloads for large unstructured data sets. The Quantum F-Series was designed specifically for video and video-like data, uses NVMe flash drives for ultra-fast reads and writes and to support a huge amount of parallel processing, and uses the latest networking technology to minimize latency between applications and storage. Relative to traditional SSD and HDD storage arrays, the Quantum F-Series is orders of magnitude faster, enables users to
