DUBLIN – November 17, 2011S3 Group, a global enabler of the highest quality Content Delivery Platforms, today announced that it has won the prestigious “Software Exporter Award 2011” from the Irish Exporters Association (IEA). The award, sponsored byEnterprise Ireland, shines a spotlight on the software companies that are leading the growth of new export markets through innovation. IEA, also known as the “voice of the export industry in Ireland,” presented this esteemed honour to S3 Group at the Industry Exporter Awards Ceremony in Dublin on November 11.

The Irish Exporters Association has brought together Irish companies from a variety of sectors for six decades – through times of economic uncertainty to the rise of the Celtic Tiger and, most recently, the birth of the “Irish Silicon Valley”. In 2007, the IEA launched the annual Export Industry Awards to honour the best companies in Ireland. A distinguished panel of judges, including Ireland’s top business leaders and government officials, chooses the awards every year.

S3 Group won the award for their overall product portfolio which consists of technology solutions for the TV Technology, Telehealth and Semiconductor industries. Specifically, the TV Technology business unit’s StormTest portfolio of products has been an industry-leader since launching in 2008 and has since grown its global presence exponentially. This product line alone has won the business of more than 25 of the world’s top digital TV operators and vendors including BSkyB, Mediaset and Irdeto by enabling an enhanced automated and accurate testing solution, challenging traditional manual testing by providing a more cost-effective and technically sound solution for the industry.

“As a medium-sized Irish company, we are extremely proud of our international accomplishments,” said John O’Brien, CEO of S3 Group. “This award touches our hearts as a true testament of the positive results that can come from hard work, dedication and the gathering of brilliant minds. We are very grateful and will continue to make this organization, and our customers, as proud as we are to be so honoured.”
