A handful of tech companies have only been given Emmy awards for a accumulation of behind-the-scenes accomplishments. Yeah, we didn’t know it was a thing either! Well, we kind of knew — as with a Oscars, it’s a “Sciences” partial of a “National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.” They only don’t play it adult a lot. But it’s still a small uncanny to see Apple win one for Siri, Microsoft win one for Skype and… Comcast win one (its third!) for a X1 remote. Really?!
I don’t meant to downplay their glory. It’s only that we hadn’t deliberate some of this unequivocally deeply embedded tech as something that would even be deliberate for an Emmy. Clearly I’m only ignorant, though in my invulnerability it’s not so elementary as better-known “Best sound design” or what have you.
This year, for instance, there was an endowment for “A Three Dimensional Doppler Radar System to Track and Display Fast Moving Pitched and Hit Balls.” Congratulations to TrackMan, MLB Advanced Media and ChyronHego!
So really, these are a reduction structured approach of assenting those companies and people who make probable all a extraordinary things we see on TV these days. Did we suffer all those unconditional shots in Game of Thrones? Well, someone had to make that possible! In this box it was DJI, John McGraw, Flying Cam Inc. and half a dozen others who common a “Low Latency Remote Controlled Airborne Video Platforms (non-military) for Television” award.
Microsoft’s Emmy was for “Development of Integrated Consumer Video Conferencing Service into Broadcast Production Environments and Workflows.” That things isn’t easy.
Apple, Comcast, Nuance and Universal Electronics were all respected for “Contextual Voice Navigation for Discovering and Interacting with TV Content.” You know: “Siri (or whoever), uncover me crime shows.” we remember Xbox doing this things a prolonged time back, so I’m not certain utterly because they’re not here. Actually, it looks like Microsoft got one a few years ago for “Television Enhancement Devices.” And one a year before that for gestures.
Comcast’s endowment was for a voice-capable X1 remote, and final year a man who led a plan (among many others) won the lifetime feat award. How about that!
Well, there might not be a red runner for a endowment recipients here, though it’s good to know that these rarely specific, indeed spasmodic obscure, technologies are being famous by a Academy.
