(Raleigh, North Carolina--May 6, 2008) Inlet Technologies, the leader in advanced encoding solutions for new media, announced today that Armada, Inlet’s revolutionary approach to encoding workflow management has been selected as one of Digital Content Producer magazine’s NAB 2008 Pick Hits.
Armada automates a number of steps, dramatically accelerating the traditional encoding process without compromising control or quality. Inlet launched this forward-thinking platform for efficient workflow at last month’s NAB show.
“We are thrilled to be recognized with such a prestigious award,” said Neal Page, CEO of Inlet Technologies. “The innovations provided by Armada deliver dramatic improvements in the efficiency of producing and delivering new media content, much like machinery did for factories back in the industrial age. This award validates Armada’s ability to address the complex challenges facing today’s new media producers as they scale to meet demand.”
Every year at the NAB Show, Pick Hit judges look for products that show significant technological innovation, while promising to have a positive, practical impact on the day-to-day professional lives of digital content producers. The awards go to new technology innovations that will offer substantial improvement over previous technology. In addition, the products must provide positive impact on the intended users’ everyday workflow.
“For more than a decade, our Pick Hit Awards have highlighted products our editors and contributors feel best exemplify innovation in technology within our industry," said Digital Content Producer Special Projects Editor Craig Erpelding. “Congratulations to Inlet's Armada platform for being selected as a Digital Content Producer 2008 NAB Pick Hit Award winner.”
