“The Technology & Engineering Emmy Award was the first Emmy Award issued in 1949 and it laid the groundwork for all the other Emmys to come,” said Adam Sharp, CEO & President, NATAS. “We are extremely happy about honoring these prestigious companies, again in partnership with NAB, where the intersection of innovation, technology and excitement in the future of television can be found.”
“As we award this latest class of technology Emmy Awards, it is amazing to look back at all the innovation that our industry has driven in increasingly short periods of time,” said Joe Inzerillo, Co-Chair, NATAS Technology Achievement Committee. “This latest group typifies that spirit.”
“This year’s awarded categories and companies are a testament to the technological innovation we continue to see in the delivery, consumption and monetization of television,” said Dina Weisberger, Co-Chair, NATAS Technology Achievement Committee.
The Technology & Engineering Emmy Awards are awarded to a living individual, a company, or a scientific or technical organization for developments and/or standardization involved in engineering technologies that either represent so extensive an improvement on existing methods or are so innovative in nature that they materially have affected television.
A Committee of highly qualified engineers working in television considers technical developments in the industry and determines which, if any, merit an award.
