Avid Receives Engineering Emmy Award
Avid has announced it has been named the recipient of the prestigious Philo T. Farnsworth Award by the Television Academy.
The award will be presented to Avid at the 70th Emmy® Engineering Awards on October 24, 2018 in Los Angeles. The Farnsworth Award is annually given to recognise a company, organisation or individual for longtime contributions that have significantly impacted television technology and engineering.
The Academy’s Engineering Emmys Committee selected Avid for this award to honour 30 years of "continuous, transformative technology innovations", including products that have improved and accelerated the entire editing and post production process for television.
“Thirty years ago, Avid broke new ground by reimagining and restructuring content creation with Media Composer®, our revolutionary non-linear editor – the first to digitise video content,”
said Jeff Rosica, CEO and President, Avid.
“Today, Avid is breaking new ground with platforms and solutions that enable the media and entertainment industries to thrive in a connected world. A key ingredient of Avid’s longevity as a trusted partner is the insight and influence we receive from our customers and users who have grown up with us in the digital age of television. This honor is as much the result of this community’s collaboration as it is Avid’s ingenuity and engineering. All of us at Avid are deeply moved to be the 2018 recipient of the Television Academy’s Philo T. Farnsworth Award.”
