EDP Awards winners announced

The EDP (European Digital Press) Association has announced its 2010 awards winners ahead of a special presentation ceremony at Ipex. The EDP, of which Image Reports is the UK representative, grants awards to what its technical committee considers to be the best products introduced into the European market over the course of the previous 12 months in acknowledgement of the research and development taking place within the industry.

Evaluation is based on innovation. The technical committee judges products on the value of the new technical abilities they offer. This can be innovation in the technology that improves speed, quality, usability and functionality or reduces environmental impact as well as cost to the user. The 2010 awards looked at products released between 1 March 2009 and 28 February 2010.?
