STAR Award for Autoscript's New Banklit TFTs

Autoscript, a Vitec Group brand and a leading teleprompting company, has won a TVT STAR Award for its new line of TFT screens introduced at IBC2008.
The STAR (Superior Technology Award Recipient) Award is given by the editorial team of TV Technology Europe magazine and is designed to celebrate and showcase the preeminent technological innovations available to the broadcast industry.
Autoscript's new range of thin film transistor (TFT) liquid crystal display screens were developed in collaboration with control card manufacturer Digital View Group. The screens feature LED backlit displays which reduce weight, power consumption and heat generation.
The technology alliance with Digital View enables greater picture quality and more advanced service diagnostics, providing information such as run life and taking TFT management to a new level of support. These benefits deliver greater reliability, performance and longer TFT life.
This is the second successive year that Autoscript has been presented with a TVT STAR Award. At IBC 2007 Autoscript won for its new ELP-8DV field-portable prompting system.
Brian Larter, Worldwide Managing Director, Autoscript, said: "We are delighted to accept the coveted TVT STAR Award for the second year running. It's an award which is all the more valuable since it independently recognises the sheer behind-the-scenes effort it takes to develop advances that truly benefit the industry."
Mark Hallinger, Editor of TV Technology Europe, added: "STAR awards are given to new products that help a user save money or accomplish a task in an easier way."
The TV Technology editorial staff reviewed a variety of products at IBC2008 and examined their technical applications and overall contribution to the industry before alighting on the winners.
