Presented Sunday, April 23 at the ShowStoppers NAB press event in Las Vegas, the awards showcased the most innovative technology products submitted by event exhibitors.
Top winner was Western Digital Corporation’s G-Speed Shuttle XL, a transportable 8-bay hardware that offers content creators a high-powered performance storage solution. This drive provides storage for demanding workflows, with the ability to support multi-stream 4K, 8K and VR workflows, as well as RAID 0, 1, 5, 6 and 10 configurations.
