The RedTech Awards, evaluated by a panel of engineers and industry experts,recognize innovative technological achievements and excellence in the radio and digital audio sectors. Factors taken into account include product-market relevance; design; business/operational benefits; conceptual innovation; technical excellence and cost-effectiveness. Along with celebrating industry innovation, RedTech’s goal with the awards is to help support our industry during these challenging times. RedTech is thus donating 10% of award proceeds to “Viva for Life in Belgium.”Viva for Life is a charity foundation founded in 2013 by French-speaking public broadcaster RTBF, which raises funds mainly for the fight against child poverty in the country.
“We are very proud of all of the winners of this very first RedTech Awards,” said RedTech Award organizers. “The radio and audio industry play an important part in everyday life at the best of times. It has also proven over the years to be a pillar of foundation during difficult times. It brings people together through information, entertainment, education and more and these past few months have reinforced its valuable role. Through the RedTech Awards, we honor the manufacturers and service providers who are often behind the scenes, but who very much play a key part in allowing the magic radio and audio to happen and to our touch lives.”
