Videography Magazine Recognizes Technology with Two Top Awards

Apple Computer, Inc. today announced that QuickTime 3.0, the latest 
release of the Company's industry-standard digital media system software 
for Windows and Mac OS, has received several product and technology 
awards from computer industry press and user groups. Videography magazine 
recently granted QuickTime 3.0 two top honors--the first annual Open 
Studio Interoperability Award, presented at the SIGGRAPH tradeshow in 
August, and the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) '97 Editors' 
Choice Award.

According to Videography, the Open Studio Interoperability Award is given 
to a new product that "most significantly enhances the sharing of digital 
media in professional studio environments." The NAB Editors' Choice Award 
is for products "that deliver new capabilities, or substantially improve 
the state-of-the-art in an existing product category." QuickTime 3.0 
received these awards based on its proven interoperability among a 
variety of tools running on multiple platforms.

QuickTime 3.0 has also received awards from other publications and user 
groups including:

Television Broadcast Magazine--Editors' Pick of Show, NAB 1997

New Media magazine--1997 Hyper Award, System Software
