Innovation drives Tektronix awards success in 2017

Across the vast and diverse electronics industry, there’s one constant that has never changed from the very beginning: innovation is the key to success. For any tech company large or small to survive for long it must continually innovate. Innovation is the currency of this industry. And those who innovate the fastest, the most consistently and the most creatively achieve the greatest success.

In the entertainment industry creativity and innovation is celebrated by glitzy awards like the Golden Globes or the Academy Awards. While the electronics industry may not have the same level of glamour, the competition for the awards that get handed out by various industry bodies and publications is every bit as fierce.

Tektronix believes in the power of innovation. Every year, we bring dozens of new products to market and many of them contain innovations that we believe are deserving of industry recognition. When the award season comes along, we do our part to highlight the innovations and make sure we’re part of the mix.

And then we wait. Are we a finalist? Did we win an award? It feels great to win and we typically bring home our fair share, which is a great testament to our product development teams. But some years, like 2017 as detailed below, we do exceptionally well. As you can see, the new 5 Series MSO – the result of the single biggest new product development effort in Tektronix’ history – managed to turn more than a few heads in the US and in Europe, winning five awards so far including two “Product of the Year” awards. But the 5 Series MSO wasn’t alone. Here’s the full list:
