For the past ten years, a highlight of CES week has been the presentation of the Technology & Engineering Emmy Awards, and this year is no exception. When the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) announced this year’s recipients, Technicolor was among the winners. Technicolor won in the Pioneering Technology category to Automate the Digital On-Line Assembly of Broadcast Content – joining other high-tech honorees such as Comcast, IBM, and Siemens.
The award-winning technology streamlines post production for customers in digital broadcast, and the Tech Emmy continues a streak started by Laser Pacific, which won six times for outstanding achievements in engineering prior to its acquisition by Technicolor.
Congratulations also go to another pioneer, Tony Werner, President of Technology at Comcast, on receiving a lifetime achievement award for his forward-looking leadership in entertainment technology when the 68th Annual Technology & Engineering Emmy Awards are handed out on January 7.
“From our beginnings in 1948, the Technology & Engineering Emmy Awards always recognized the talented and innovative leaders and companies that have made our industry possible, “according to Bob Mauro, President, NATAS, in the release about this year’s recipients. “As we all enjoy the new world of television on our laptops, tablets and smartphones, we take time tonight to honor those that have the vision of seeing the seemingly impossible and making it a reality.”
