Last year, AGCO’s Fuse® Technologies produced an exciting new video bringing Fuse Technologies to life like never before.

The video showcased AGCO’s vision for the future of precision farming, and brought a greater understanding of the Fuse strategy highlighting the benefits it brings to our customers and dealers.

Since that time the video has been acknowledged by the WorldFest-Houston International Film & Video Festival, honoring the Fuse Technologies video with a Gold Remi Award in the ‘Agriculture’ category. WorldFest is one of the oldest and largest film and video competitions in the world, with more than 4,500 entries received from 37 countries. WorldFest is a combination of 12 Major film and video competitions in one event, unlike Cannes, Sundance and Toronto, which are comprised of just two competitions for shorts and features only. Through hosting 12 major competitions and 200+ sub-categories, WorldFest recognizes a broader range of video excellence, including agriculture and business communications. No awards are given in any category unless the scores from the juries are high enough to place for honors.

The following criteria are carefully considered by the judging panel when reviewing each entry:

  • Concept
  • Attainment of goal
  • Storyline/Script
  • Directing
  • Cinematography
  • Editing
  • Technical excellence
  • Pacing – story development
  • Sound/Music
  • Overall Impression

AGCO’s Fuse Technologies was only 1 of 2 recipients in the agriculture category. Special thanks to silberstern GmbH, of Kempten, Germany, for their work on this piece. Their understanding of AGCO and the Fuse Technologies strategy was instrumental in the success of this video becoming a reality.

This recognition comes to Fuse Technologies shortly after being awarded two IMA Outstanding Achievement Awards™ in the areas of ‘Science/Technology’ and ‘Professional Services’ for the work done with the Fuse Technologies website, and is a tremendous honor from the film and video community.
