Piero Scores The Queen's Award for Innovation
Her Majesty the Queen awarded Piero in joint partnership with BBC Research and Development the Queen's Award for Enterprise.
It is the highest official UK award to British Businesses for outstanding achievements.
Our history dates back in the late 90’s when a group of BBC R&D experts started working on the Prometheus project to create and deliver 3D content. Piero first aired in 2004 on the BBC’s Match of the Day as the product of Red Bee Media’s Design Systems Division. The slick and quick Piero has been sold in over 40 countries and, as a high point, was the analysis tool used for 90% of the games broadcasted throughout the South African Football World Cup.
The Piero team would like to take this opportunity and express its delight over the award and wish Her Majesty The Queen a Happy Birthday!
Below you’ll find the clip of Piero’s premiere on Match of the Day.
