Creative COW Magazine : Blue Ribbon Awards Issue
After attending the NAB Show, we asked ourselves here at the COW, "What do our members feel are the hottest products that appeared during NAB 2010?" We decided the best way to answer this question was to weight the votes by the expertise and experience of the member commenting, so it is based on more than simple popular vote -- the COW is dedicated to working professionals, so let their voice be heard. As Tim Wilson says: "Our members don’t care what magazine editors have to say -- picking favorites from among tools they’ve never worked with anyway." We now give you the opportunity to read what some of our highly respected members -- in their own field, and here in our COW pastures -- had to say about their favorites:
A Look at Our Blue Ribbon Line-Up by Ron Lindeboom: A convenient "tour guide" to our Blue Ribbon winners.
Camera, Lens, and Gear Round-Up: Gary Adcock digs deep into the NAB 2010 offerings and brings Creative COW readers his Blue Ribbon picks.
Stereoscopic Storm: Stereo 3D at NAB 2010: Steven Bradford gives the line-up and some of the winners.
DSLR Round-Up: Bob Primes ASC Reports: An award-winning Director of Photography in his acid test.
Blue Ribbon Broadcast Switchers: Our leaders and members chose these as their favorites.
Data-Driven Broadcast Infrastructures: Bob Zelin reports on drives, peripherals, networks and more.
Best of Show 2010: Blackmagic Design: Blackmagic Design introduced a huge number of tools and systems to NAB 2010 attendees. Our members named them the most impressive new line-up at the show.
Industry News: Anton/Bauer celebrates 40 years, a new alliance at NAB 2010, Canon’s newest, Avid buys Euphonix, and more.

Why We've Avoided Tradeshow Awards Until NowWhy We've Avoided Tradeshow Awards Until Now

There's a long list of reasons that we've avoided doing a Tradeshow Awards Issue... We have a unique perspective on awards, because we are not exactly magazine people, and at times it shows, but we hope it shows in some good things like new ways of fresh thinking, too.

Blue Ribbon for Best of Show: NAB 2010 -- Blackmagic DesignBlue Ribbon for Best of Show: NAB 2010 -- Blackmagic Design

There may have been companies at 2010's NAB Show who brought more new products than Blackmagic Design -- but then again, with a dozen major new releases, there may not have been. There was certainly nobody who brought so many best-of-category products, several of which could merit Best of Show awards on their own, with the potential to truly transform advanced post and broadcast workflows. Simply put, we've never seen anybody come to the show playing for keeps in so many different ways.
