Samsung wins big at Tipa Awards
Amman, May 12, 2013
Samsung Electronics, a global leader in digital media and digital convergence technologies, has won four 2013 Technical Image Press Association (Tipa) Awards for its camera and imaging products.
The awards were won in the ‘Best CSC Advanced’, ‘Best Mobile Imaging Device’, ‘Best Imaging Innovation’ and ‘Best Photo TV’ categories.
For the first time, Samsung’s Digital Imaging devices won three 2013 Tipa Awards. The Samsung Smart Camera NX300 won Best CSC Advanced, making it the best advanced compact system camera (CSC) on the market, a company statement said.
The NX300’s brand new 20.3 Megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor allows users to take images that boast sharp, life-like colors which are crisp and clear in all light conditions, it added.
Taking balanced images in the dark conditions is also made possible by the NX300’s wide ISO range (ISO100-25600), while the new Hybrid Auto Focus (AF) system delivers fast contrast detection. With its Wi-Fi capability the camera also allows users to share their images instantly.
The Samsung Galaxy Camera won Best Mobile Imaging Device by “redefining the connected camera genre,” as stated by the Tipa judges.
As the world’s first android based 3G camera, the Galaxy Camera combines the professional quality of a high end camera and the freedom of 3G/4G and Wi-Fi connectivity, allowing users to instantly share high quality images.
The images may also be edited on the camera’s 4.8-inch HD Super Clear Touch Display.
The world’s first one-lens 3D system for a consumer camera, the Samsung 45mm f/1.8 (2D/3D) lens was awarded by the Tipa judges Best Mobile Imaging Innovation. Capable of capturing both stills and 1080p Full HD video in perfect 3D, with the Samsung 45mm f/1.8 (2D/3D) lens users can choose to take 2D or 3D images without changing lens by simply turning on the 3D mode.
Samsung was also awarded Best Photo TV for its F8000 Smart LED TV as it changes the way users view images on their TVs by allowing them “to interact with the images and share them on social networks, work with apps, and use the TV as an image hub with numerous devices,” as stated by the Tipa judges.
“We are extremely proud of winning these four prestigious awards,” said Seok Pil Kim, president and CEO of Samsung Electronics Europe. “These awards are recognition from the industry that Samsung continues to deliver innovative, cutting-edge imaging products that place consumers’ needs at their hearts, making it simpler to capture, instantly share and view those unforgettable moments.”
Every year, Tipa editors vote for the best photo and imaging products introduced to the market during the previous 12 months. The awards ceremony will take place in Tokyo, Japan in June. – TradeArabia News Service
