By now, it is a well-known fact that all physical events and tournaments were suspended indefinitely following the spread of Covid-19. 

From the English Premier League and the IPL Cricket tournament to NAB 2020 and Saudi's first ever international film festival - everything took a back seat as we looked to curb the spread of the coronavirus. 

Now, in the aftermath of lockdowns and curfews, things are beginning to get back to normal - sort of.

The show must go on, and several of them have gone ahead over the last five weeks. Several companies have turned their attention to webinars and online sessions to present new services and products. 

Digital Studio's parent company ITP Media Group is a trailblazer when it comes to digital media. It's evident with the company's pioneering moves when it founded digital ventures such as ITP Live. To add to its strong print runs, ITP Media Group's digital footprint and prowess is unmatched in the regional media spheres and hosting its first virtual awards is yet another milestone in its lists of firsts.  

Digital Studio Awards has hosted a gala event for 15 years in a row, and the step up to broadcasting our awards online coincides with the magazine's 20th anniversary.

For the last two decades we have been reporting on the latest, cutting edge technology in media production, broadcast and its delivery. From cable TV and satellite to streaming platforms, and analogue cameras to 8K modular units - Digital Studio (and Digital Broadcast for the old timers who remember our sister-publication) has always brought the latest news.

Hosting the awards virtually is going to demonstrate a whole new level of content delivery from our team. We might not be able to deliver a match of the day style graphical treat, but we promise to get as close as we can.
