He also gave thanks to Nick Tanton, Martin Bell, Rhys Lewis, Dick Eagle and Simon Fell who all individually contributed hundred of man-hours to the initial development of AFD.

ATSC, SMPTE, DVB, NBC Universal, Ericsson, Miranda Technologies and CEA also received awards for their contribution to AFD.
