EventDV's Winners' Circle is a list of 17 companies, recognized for their product releases during NAB for the event video market. Each year, contributing editor and Los Angeles-area videographer and filmmaker Marc Franklin compiles the list.

About Singular Software Prest*
The Singular Software Presto plug-in utilizes sophisticated computer vision and audio synchronization techniques to automate the entire editing process for presentation videos. Users provide video of the presenter, screen, and presentation slides and it automatically synchronizes, arranges and edits for a flawless finish. The resulting video can be used as is, or customized using templates and wizards provided with the product.
The DualEyes application for dual-system audio utilizes the same high-level technology as its sister product, PluralEyes, to automatically sync video clips to an audio recording. Users simply record audio on a separate recorder while recording video. DualEyes synchronizes and trims the audio to automatically match each video clip in both start time and duration. With DualEyes' technology, all original media files are kept intact and new media files are created for maximum flexibility. Import the video and new audio clips into any video editor and link them up to start the video editing process. Since DualEyes is a standalone application it can be used with any video editing software for easy retrieval of the highest quality audio for any video production.
