Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd, the global leader in digital media and digital convergence technologies, recently announced receiving four awards from the Technical Image Press Association Awards (TIPA) 2013. In recognition of the cutting-edge, unique technologies provided by Samsung products, the company won four awards in the following categories: ‘Best CSC Advanced’, ‘Best Mobile Imaging Device’, ‘Best Imaging Innovation’ and ‘Best Photo TV’.

Samsung’s Digital Imaging devices secured three TIPA awards, for the first time in its history. The Samsung Smart Camera NX300 won Best CSC Advanced, making it the best advanced compact system camera (CSC) in the global market. The NX300’s brand new 20.3 Megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor allows users to take images with life-like colors regardless of the light conditions. Moreover, its brand new Hybrid Auto Focus (AF) system delivers fast, accurate faces and contrast detection. With its Wi-Fi capability the camera also allows users to share their images instantly. All of these features contributed to the decision of TIPA judges to award this camera ‘Best CSC Advanced’.

The Samsung GALAXY Camera won Best Mobile Imaging Device by “redefining the connected camera genre,” as stated by TIPA judges. As the world’s first android based 3G camera, the GALAXY Camera combines the professional quality of a high-end camera with 3G/4G and Wi-Fi connectivity, allowing users to instantly share high quality images with their friends and family. Once captured, users can easily view and edit images on the camera’s impressive 4.8-inch HD Super Clear Touch Display.

Furthermore, the world’ first one-lens 3D system for a consumer camera, the Samsung 45mm f/1.8 (2D/3D) lens was awarded by TIPA judges the Best Mobile Imaging Innovation. Capable of capturing both stills and 1080p Full HD video in perfect 3D, with the Samsung 45mm f/1.8 (2D/3D) lens users can choose to take 2D or 3D images without changing lens by simply turning on the 3D mode.

Samsung was also awarded Best Photo TV for its F8000 Smart LED 2D/3D TV as it changes the way users view images on their TVs by allowing them “to interact with the images and share them on social networks, work with apps, and use the TV as an image hub with numerous devices,” as stated by TIPA judges.

“We are extremely proud of winning these four prestigious awards,” said Duke Park, Vice President of Samsung Egypt. “These awards are a valuable recognition from an iconic association in the imaging industry that Samsung continues to deliver innovative, cutting-edge imaging products that place consumers’ needs at their hearts, making it simpler to capture, instantly share and view those unforgettable moments.”

TIPA Awards are recognized as the most coveted photo and imaging awards worldwide. Every year, TIPA editors vote for the best photo and imaging products introduced to the market during the previous 12 months. The awards ceremony will take place in Tokyo, Japan in June 2013.
