Espresso wins European Broadband Award for creative use of archive content

Winner of the Most Imaginative Reuse of Archive Content was Espresso Productions, a UK based company which delivers broadband educational content to schools.

Three top Broadband companies collected their awards at IIR's Broadband Content Congress in Barcelona in November. Espresso Productions, founded in 1997 by Tony Bowden and Lewis Bronze, won the Most Imaginative Reuse of Archive Content for its curriculum-focused resources for both pupils and teachers in the form of video and multimedia activities.

Winner of the Most Creative Broadband Content Service was NetActive for its flagship product Netactive Reach TM. The media streaming company Virage won the Most Innovative Broadband Broadband Content Network Enabling Technology. Over 150 industry professionals attended the Broadband Content Congress, which brought together Content Providers, Carriers, Service Providers and Content Networkers from around the globe.

Following this successful event, IIR plan to organise another Broadband Content Congress next year. Details will be posted on the IIR Telecoms website as soon as they become available. Those who would like to be notified as soon as they become available should register their details by following the IIR link on the right hand frame.
