“We are honored to receive this award knowing that Sony’s longstanding contribution to the broadcasting industry was notably recognized,” said by Hiroshi Kiriyama, VP, Media Business, Professional Solutions and Services Group, Sony Corporation. “The history of VTR development in Sony began with U-matic, Betacam to HDCAM-SR, and our accumulated technology and knowhow inherited to optical disc era. Digitalization, higher resolution, video compression and transmission technologies have also led to various engineering evolutions and have played important roles in history. However not a single innovation was achieved by Sony alone, but through expectations, ideas and suggestions received from many customers. Sony's history of technology development is also the history of Sony learning from its customers. Given this opportunity, we would like to again express our sincere appreciation to all of our customers”.
