The Tiffen Company Closes Out 2013 With Another Award-Winning Year

The Tiffen Company, a leading manufacturer of award-winning imaging accessories, closes out 2013 with a hefty collection of awards from industry tastemakers. The most recent accolades began rolling in when the Steadicam® SOLO¢ landed a coveted spot on Outdoor Photographer's list of Editors Picks. SOLO continued Tiffens winning-streak, being honored with one of Digital Photos 2014 Editors Choice Awards, which features the magazines handpicked annual collection of noteworthy gear and technology. The camera stabilizer from the trusted Steadicam brand rounded out its wins with a Product Innovation Award from NewBay Media, which also awarded the Tiffen Variable ND Filter and Steadicam® CURVE¢ for GoPro® HERO® cameras with honorable mentions. NewBay Medias PIA program recognizes excellence in manufacturing, praising some of the industrys most innovative new products that serve TV, professional video and broadcast/online radio users.

Listed twice in the Videomaker Editors Picks for Best Video Production Products for 2013, Tiffen is also proud to be recognized for its lighting and tripod products. The Lowel Blender 3-Light Kit was named the best light kit of the year, while Davis & Sanford ProElite Series was listed as the best tripod of 2013. The manufacture and use of video production gear is in constant flux, but this past year we saw some changes not just to the technology, but how we use it. Rather than having step up changes we saw products go from evolutionary to revolutionary that will help producers from beginners to pros make better video, Videomaker reports. This was one of the hardest selections of products for the editors to determine at Videomaker, as we define the gear of the past year that we think is innovative and evolutionary enough to say it will last through the technological changes of the next year and more to come.

2013 has been another award-winning year for Tiffen. Weve been working closely with photographers, videographers and imaging enthusiasts to offer an even wider selection of innovative digital imaging gear and accessories to help them create the worlds greatest images, comments Steve Tiffen, President and CEO, The Tiffen Company. I am so proud of all the people at Tiffen and customers who have helped shape these products, and am thankful to Videomaker, NewBay Media,Outdoor Photographer and Digital Photo, among others, for recognizing the passion and dedication that go into creating tools that continue to revolutionize the industry. Were proud to close out 2013 on such a positive note, raising the bar higher than ever for 2014.

A Strong Start to a Successful Year
While Tiffen closes out 2013 with a number of recent wins, the beginning of the year also proved to be just as fruitful. Kicking the year off right, Tiffen was named one of the recipients of the 64th Annual Technology & Engineering Emmy® Awards, awarded for its Infrared Neutral Density (IRND) Glass Filter Technology for Digital Motion Picture Cameras. The company was honored at the awards ceremony during CES 2013 in January. In April during NAB 2013, Tiffen won two Studio Daily Prime Awards: a Best in Show for the state-of-the-art Tiffen IRND + GlimmerGlass Motion Picture/TV Filters and a Value award for the Davis & Sanford ProElite Series. Both awards were in the Production category, where Tiffens Lowel Prime Power LED also received a nomination. Also during this years NAB Show, Tiffen received a 21st Annual Mario Award given by TV Technology magazine for its Listec PromPTZ, one of the first prompters of its kind.

The awards continued in May 2013, when Tiffen Photo fx Ultra v5 was named Best Mobile Photo App of 2013 by the prestigious Technical Image Press Association (TIPA). According to the TIPA website, editors of the member-magazines (full list can be found here:http://www.tipa.com/english/magazines_list.php) evaluate products introduced to the market in the past 12 months and base judgments on innovation, the use of leading-edge technology, design and ergonomics, ease-of-use, as well as price/performance ratio. In July, Tiffen was awarded the 2013 Hot One Award from Professional Photographer magazine for Steadicam Merlin 2 andDealerscopes CE Week Line Show 2013 Best in Show Premier Product award in the Digital Imaging category for the brand new Steadicam CURVE¢ for GoPro® HERO® products, ending the first half of the year in awards and setting the stage for the end of 2013.
