IABM Announces BaM Award Winners for Excellence in Media Technology

Among the many events, developments, and news made at this year’s NAB Show 2023, the IAMB BaM Awards were handed out to celebrate “outstanding technological innovations that deliver real business and creative benefits,” according to the organization.

Presented by IAMB, the international trade association for broadcast and media technology, the award winners were selected across 10 different categories by a panel of 40 non-affiliated, expert judges that were chosen for their specialist expertise in one or more of the awards categories.

“It is said that difficult times often bring out the very best in people,” said IAMB in a statement. “I think the high quality of all the entries for the 2023 NAB Show edition of the BaM Awards demonstrates this admirably, and the winners are nothing short of outstanding – powering the transformation that is taking place across every segment.”

The following is a list of all the winners in each category along with comments from the judges.

 

Create

Aximmetry Technologies Ltd
Aximmetry 3D Cleanplate feature

“An intriguing solution to a common problem. Moving a camera to capture a complete virtual green screen takes keying to a new level.”

 

Produce

Vizrt
Viz Arena 5.1 (powered by Viz AI)

“Great system. The capability to cope with demanding changing lighting conditions and to make virtual advertising seamless is a powerful combination in today’s sporting coverage. Already proven in some top-notch sports events.”

“Combining workflows with new AI tools looks very interesting. I rarely hold the edge of the table looking into new tech; this time, I did.”

 

Publish

Varnish Software
Achieving > 1.3 Tbps throughput on a single server

“This innovation is a triumph of performance over scale to deliver video to the continually rapidly expanding demand for VOD but, critically, delivers a 66% reduction in the power required. This company hits new marks in performance – and better performance hits every KPI at a broadcaster/streaming service – cost, performance/ user demand and being able to operate sustainable services. Improving in this sector will get attention from many parties – regardless if you are building a CDN or renting their services.”

 

Monetize

Veritone
Veritone Generative AI

“A practical use of AI that demonstrates the way the AI market is evolving. A great solution leveraging the power of Generative AI in multiple applications/ domains.” 

 

Consume

Accedo
Accedo Xtend suite

“Facilitating an approach that allows content providers to test potential successful forays into the Metaverse. Making XR content creation and delivery is an important step forward if the goal is to get the broader community involved. The Metaverse has a lot of potential but until it becomes easily deployable at scale, it’s going to be a tough proposition. This effort is one way to make that leap.”

 

Connect

swXtch.io
cloudswXtch virtual overlay network

“A well thought-through product – a powerful solution allowing the bridging of 2110 networking to cloud using multicast; great integration and visibility of the network.”

 

Store

Hammerspace

“Innovation is best proved when it solves a problem that was left languishing by others – in this case a single view on distributed storage. What this really represents is finally getting a grip on years of legacy media, a jumble of metadata, duplication, unused archive, M&A, wasted storage, vendor lock-in – none of which is solved by the performance of your storage or network. This is just as valuable supporting distributed and remote working and workflows; only wish this existed a while back!”

Touchstream
ISP Insights: Plugging the gap in content delivery monitoring

“An elegant solution. Good visibility of OTT delivery means better QoE and reduced churn.”

 

Project, Collaboration, or Event

Marquis
Marquis-accelerated Sony to Avid news production workflow

“A wonderful use of 5G to further optimize news production; my feeling is this cannot be the only use case of this innovation – having distributed post production able to work on rushes in near-real time to get a quick rough cut that can be seamlessly relinked to the hi-res media seems very useful.
