The Rising Star accolade is awarded to any organisation or individual making a tangible difference within the industry and displaying standout values worthy of recognition. Recipients of the award must embody at least one of the following descriptions: A game-changer, disruptive force for good, problem solver, a bright young thing or an excellent idea/welcome addition to the broadcast fold.

Open Broadcast Systems’ encoders and decoders have enabled the successful contribution and production of a number of broadcasters over IP. Recent projects include the delivery of live television broadcasts over the public internet for BBC Scotland and also other broadcasters.

All products from Open Broadcast Systems run on standard ‘off-the-shelf’ IT hardware, something which is almost unheard of within the broadcast industry, yet drastically reduces costs and time-to-market, without reducing quality.

“It’s a huge honour to have been presented with the Rising Star award and acknowledged as a disruptive force within the industry, enabling our customers to deliver broadcast quality using IT, commented Kieran Kunhya, Founder and Managing Director, Open Broadcast Systems. “The biggest barrier for our kind of solutions is the industry mindset and we look forward to continuing to change that.”
