Studio Network Solutions Announces Winners Hard Drive Toss

Contest a ?smashing? success among attendees (May 06, 2005)

Upon successful completion of the First Annual Hard Drive Toss Contest at the NAB Show in Las Vegas, Studio Network Solutions (SNS) announced the first, second and third prizewinners. Hiroaki Komatsu of Osaka, Japan received the grand prize 17 Powerbook while John Mills of Vancouver, Canada was awarded the iBook. Finally, Gordon Humphrey of New Hampshire received the iPod.

?Congratulations to those three lucky winners! We would also like to extend our gratitude to all those who participated in the event and helped make this a successful event, stated Eric Newbauer, Director of Operation at SNS. ?We were incredibly pleased at how well received the contest was and look forward to hosting it again next year.

In the four hours that the Hard Drive Toss Contest occurred, approximately 500 people joined SNS in the festivities. Among those participants, an estimated 60 were successful in landing a hard drive into a garbage can placed 30 feet from the starting point. These skilled individuals were automatically entered into a drawing for a Powerbook or iBook.

Those who tossed a drive but didnt land it in the garbage can were entered into a drawing for a Special Edition U2 iPod. Overall, everyone who showed up became a winner by receiving a First Annual Hard Drive Toss Contest t-shirt.

The goal of the event was to campaign the latest workflow design software built by SNS, an industry leader in designing and manufacturing storage technology. It also served to demonstrate that without a proper Storage Area Network a person might as well ?toss their hard drive in the garbage.

?The contest provided NAB participants with some much needed fun and excitement. The enthusiasm surrounding the event was incredible, stated Sarah Heintzman, PR / Marketing Coordinator at SNS. ?If you didnt make it to the Mobile Media area for the First Annual Hard Drive Toss Contest, definitely make plans to visit next year. We are already working to make next years contest even better.
