The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences has come out with the winners of the 73rd Annual Technology & Engineering Emmy Awards. The awards ceremony took place tonight at the Wynn Encore Ballroom in Las Vegas, in partnership with the National Association of Broadcasters as part of its convention.
The ceremony was hosted by Rich Little and CBS Sunday morningis David Pogue. Check out the list of winners below.
According to NATAS, the Tech & Engineers Emmys are awarded to a living individual, company, or scientific or technical organization for developments and/or standardization involved in engineering technologies that represent such a significant improvement on existing methods or are of nature so innovative that they have materially affected television. They are voted on by a committee of engineers working in television that reviews technical developments in the industry and determines which, if any, deserve an award.
A pair of television technology pioneers were also celebrated tonight: Maurice Leblanc, for the early suggestions of color television and the use of the cathode ray tube, and Paul Nipkow, designed a complete television system and was the first to patent it.
“The Technology & Engineering Emmy Award was the first Emmy Award presented in 1949 and it laid the foundation for all future Emmys,” NATAS President and CEO Adam Sharp said in a statement. “We are extremely pleased to honor these prestigious companies, once again in partnership with NAB, where lies the intersection of innovation, technology and excitement in the future of television.”
