Sony's famed founder, Akio Morita, spent his youth making homemade alarm clock radios. He's not even the most famous tinkerer, but he's typical of the kind of visionary who, even at a young age, is captivated by the possibilities technology brings, and how its contributions can change the media world.

That's the idea behind Broadcasting & Cable's 11th Annual Technology Leadership Awards. The magazine pays special tribute to leaders of the business whose innovation, imagination and achievement deserve special recognition.

With this year's winners, B&C has now recognized 47 technology wizards, the kind who make each year's NAB show such a carnival of marvels that changes the way the world receives content. On the pages that follow, Kevin Downey profiles this year's winners.
