BEAVERTON, Ore., April 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Tektronix (www.tektronix.com/video), the market leader in broadcast video test, monitoring and analysis solutions, today announced that its QCloud, a cloud-based quality control (QC) software subscription platform, is the recipient of one of the industry's most prestigious technology honors, NewBay Media's "Best of Show Award," presented at the 2014 NAB Show in Las Vegas by TV Technology magazine.
NewBay Media's Best of Show Awards are evaluated by a panel of engineers and industry experts, and are selected based on innovation, feature set, cost efficiency and performance in serving the industry. Only a small number of products were chosen for NewBay Media's Best of Show Award from among hundreds of new products in competition. The winners will be featured in TV Technology, the industry's leading magazine for technology news and reviews and is celebrating its 30th year covering the television industry.
Tektronix develops industry leading solutions that video service providers (VSP), broadcasters and content creators need to ensure the quality of the services and content they provide. With QCloud, Tektronix addresses the increasing trend of media workflows being run in the cloud – which has the advantage of instant scalability and usage-based pricing models. QCloud can perform QC checks and correct even the largest media files in the cloud where the content resides. QCloud is the first cloud-based QC solution that meets the needs of the production, post production, broadcast and online video service market segments that operate file-based workflows on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and other cloud platforms.
"Receiving NewBay Media's 'Best in Show' award at NAB this year highlights our dedication to developing products that meet the needs of an evolving industry," said Eben Jenkins, general manager, Video Product Line, Tektronix. "QCloud addresses the challenges faced by the industry when providing quality cloud-based content to consumers, with usage-based OpEx and no upfront CapEx model that VSPs, broadcasters and content creators can afford. We are continually adding new features, functions and capabilities to ensure our video product lines address the most urgent requirements, from improving the early detection and diagnosis of video and audio issues."
