EBU Awards Sveriges Radio the Technology & Innovation Award
At the EBU Technical Assembly in Stuttgart on 8 June 2017 the NXG project at Sveriges Radio was awarded the EBU Technology and Innovation award. By using a powerful remote control protocol, NXG allows a complete radio show to be made from anywhere with a sufficient network connection.
– We are very happy and honoured that our work was given attention in this setting. The award is a proof that Swedish Radio is on the forefront, and it is especially gratifying that a radio broadcast company is awarded this price, since a majority of the jury is from the world of television, says Lars Hedh, manager of method and technology development.
The NXG project was described in detail during the Broadcast (R)Evolution conference in Stockholm early may by Johan Boquist, one of the engineers working with this project. The IRIS CCM software is a critical component of the NXG project. You can download the presentation from our web site.
