Avid has been honoured with the Emmy engineering award by the Television Academy for its products' contribution to the editing and production process of television. The award will be presented October 24, in Los Angeles.
The Farnsworth Award is awarded each year to recognise the significant impact a company, organisation or individual has made in TV technology and engineering.
CEO and president of Avid, Jeff Rosica, said: “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, 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.”
He added: “This honour 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.”
