International Honour for Excellence

IBC’s highest award is the International Honour for Excellence. In 2012 it was made to the Science and Technology Research Laboratories (STRL) of Japanese national broadcaster NHK, for more than 80 years of innovation.

Formed in 1930, it was making trial broadcasts of television in 1939, with colour television experiments in 1960 and its first work on HD starting in 1964. Today it continues to push the boundaries, with its Super Hi-Vision system for 8K television, a regular favourite demonstration at IBC.

The STRL has also been instrumental in other areas, including digital compression, satellite broadcasting and the plasma display.

IBC was honoured that the award was accepted at the ceremony by Masayuki Matsumoto, the President of NHK, who confirmed that the STRL will continue its pioneering work. “With a firm belief that broadcasting is a form of culture founded on technology, NHK will continue to commit itself to drawing on the latest achievements to create a new broadcasting culture,” he said. “It is a great honour for us at NHK to receive this prestigious award.”
