Honoring outstanding products that serve professionals who work in the TV/pro video and radio/online audio industries.

Welcome to the 2019 Future Product Innovation Awards, honoring outstanding product introductions that serve professionals who work in the TV/pro video and radio/online audio industries. Presented by leading media brands TV Technology, Digital Video, Creative Planet Network, Government Video, Video Edge, and Radio World, these yearly awards recognize technology innovations and advances with a promotional program developed for multiple platforms. New this year, we are featuring a category on people who innovate, rather than products, which can be added on to any product submission. Details in the FAQ!

New in 2019 - nominate an innovative person in our 'Industry Innovator' category
The Product Innovation Awards are mostly about new products! But this year we also offer a special category so that you can, if you wish, nominate a person who innovates in TV/video technology, radio/audio technology, content production/delivery and government video, someone whose role deserves more appreciation. The form will guide you. Feel free to enter nominations in either category, or both.
Any company that has released new and/or upgraded hardware, software or other products for these markets since Jan. 1, 2018 (the beginning of the prior full calendar year) may enter.
The PIA program is a creative way to shine a bright spotlight on your newest products. To be chosen for the Product Innovation Award means that a panel of working professional engineers and managers in TV, pro video and radio has taken special note of your offering.

Further, every product nominated, whether chosen for an award or not, will be featured in the special Product Innovation Awards Program Guide, to be distributed in digital edition form in early December to readers of TV Technology, Digital Video, Creative Planet Network, Government Video, Video Edge, and Radio World. See last year’s Guide!
