About the CSI Awards
The CSI Awards are one of the most comprehensive and competitive technology awards anywhere in the world, designed to reward technical and product marketing excellence in the cable, satellite, terrestrial broadcasting, mobile and IPTV sectors. The awards are judged independently of CSI by a panel of experts that includes practicing and former heads of engineering and operations from some of the world's most important network operators, well-respected consultants and senior industry analysts. In previous years there were between 15 and 20 people on the awards panel -- a figure that allowed judges to specialise in their areas of greatest knowledge/experience, and which also provides assurance that the final result will take into account diverse opinions and backgrounds.
