Last month I was attending the National Association of Broadcasters trade show in Las Vegas on behalf of the BCPVA and EventDV Magazine. As a BCPVA delegate I was charged with selecting BCPVA Video Innovation Awards. A month later, news of the awards has spread across the internet, and the world, with reports from USA, Australia, and Japan.

Awards were presented to Sony, Blackmagic Design, K-Tek, Adobe, and Atomos.

Check-out the BCPVA blog for a few the reports:

And below is a sample, from Sony’s Australian website:

NEX-FS100P 2011 Wins VIA Award at NAB 2011.
The British Columbia Professional Videographers Association presented Sony with the 2011 BCPVA Video Innovation Award for the NEX-FS100P.

The 2011 BCPVA VIA was presented to Jeff Ibbotson, Senior Vice President, Professional Solutions Group, by BCPVA delegate Shawn Lam, at NAB 2011.

The NEX-FS100P is a super 35 sensor interchangeable lens HD video camera with professional XLR audio inputs. The super 35 sensor allows the FS100 to attain superior low light sensitivity and a sought-after bokeh, or defocus. The FS100 improves on the problems that DSLR camera operators have been limited by, including moire, aliasing, rolling shutter, 12 minute record limits, lack of data-display-less HDMI record out, and egonomics.

The British Columbia Videographers Association is Canada’s largest non-profit professional video association and its members specialise in event, corporate, and wedding videography.
