NDTV wins CBA award for innovative engineering for record fifth time.

NDTV has yet again emerged as the channel with the best talent in journalism and media technology. NDTV Labs Ltd has been awarded the prestigious Commonwealth Broadcasting Association (CBA) Award for 'Innovative Engineering', while NDTV's Features Editor, Sutapa Deb, was declared CBA-Thomson Foundation Journalist of the Year at the CBA Broadcasting Awards for 2008 presented in Nassau, Bahamas.

NDTV Labs has bagged this award for the fifth time in six years. The media entity also took the opportunity to launch the nX series of software products at the Conference at the CBA Broadcasting Awards for 2008.

Deb is the driving force behind the TV series ‘India Matters’, which engages viewers with development issues at a time when most TV channels are catering to politics, cricket and films.

“There are thousands of stories waiting to be told. Often I wish there was a little less cynicism and a lot more idealism. Stories come and go before people can understand the context, and because of this we have failed to deepen our understanding about a number of vital issues that face our society. Each story is important, and must be well told,” Deb said.

Some of her reports include ‘Banker to the Poor’ and ‘India's coming out’. The most recent series is on HIV positive children who are neglected by the system. Her report looks at the lack of institutions for HIV orphans.
