Andrew Briz, 3TEL, was selected for one of only three 2016 Excellence in Innovative Technology (EIT) Awards from the National Association of Broadcasting Education Foundation (NABEF).

The EIT award recognizes extraordinary students impacting and promoting technology in the media industry. Entrants submit a design that relates to television, radio, digital, mobile technologies, social media, streaming, information management, web or other telecommunication-based applications and must be able to present a working prototype that has been deployed and/or tested.

Briz’s entry features a hypervideo web application that displays traditional video frames and allows for the easy addition of common journalism web graphics. Hypervideo technologies have existed for years (i.e. YouTube), however this app is unique due to its simplification and compatibility. Journalists with little to no coding experience can boost the quality of their video presentations. Briz will present the app and accept the award at the annual NABEF Conference in New York City in November.
