The final issue of tech-i magazine for 2020 is now available for download. There is a strong focus on this year's EBU Technology & Innovation Award, with articles from each of the two joint winners, plus the three runner-up projects.
Hugo Ortiz of RTBF writes about the Belgian broadcaster's project to reimagine the control room. The Control Room 42 project – known as CR42 – created a software-based control room that symbolizes the digital transformation of broadcast production, allowing users to design the interface that works best for them.
The other winning project in this year's Award came from France tv. Matthieu Parmentier explains how the broadcaster's new AI and data team leveraged the latest technologies to provide journalists with new ways of telling stories during the French municipal elections.
The runner-up projects came from NPO, BBC and Yle, focusing respectively on automated subtitling, accessible audio and mobile journalism. You can read about all five projects in the magazine.
