DTG to reward technical innovators


DTG has selected 10 UK media technology start-ups to compete for an international presence at the world’s biggest media technology event, IBC 2015.

The DTG Television Innovation Awards 2015 is sponsored by UK Trade & Investment, in partnership with IBC, to promote the brightest new ideas from small and medium-sized companies in the broadcasting and media technology sector.

The shortlisted UK Finalists will each have just three minutes to pitch to a panel of judges from the industry, who will select six deserving entrants to exhibit on the DTG stand from September 11th-15th and compete before an international judging panel to win the Gold, Silver and Bronze awards.

DTG chief executive Richard Lindsay-Davies said: “The DTG was once again impressed by the breadth and imagination of ideas we received, demonstrating the ingenuity of Britain’s young engineers and entrepreneurs.”

Now in its third year, the DTG Television Innovation Awards has already helped eight companies to success, and this year they’re expanding with more winners and a greater international impact.

–  Burst: Short form video intelligence platform
