Now in its eleventh year, TV Technology’s STAR Award (for Superior Technology Award Recipient) celebrates and showcases the outstanding technological innovations available to the media industry. A panel of judges consisting of TV Technology editors and columnists reviewed a variety of products, examined the technical applications and their overall contribution to the industry, and then submitted their award nominees.
Vantage is the industry’s first, enterprise-class software solution that integrates silos of digital video processing into a single managed workflow. Developed for media and entertainment companies and organizations with high-volume video processing needs, Vantage allows users to design and automate any number or type of video workflows.

The modular nature of Vantage allows enterprises to simplify the migration to IT workflows, improve video operations, and more easily address new multi-platform business opportunities and revenue streams.
