The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences is out with the winners of the 73rd annual Technology & Engineering Emmy Awards. The trophy ceremony was held 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 CBS Sunday Morning‘s David Pogue and featured presenter and performer Rich Little. Check out the winners list below.
Per NATAS, the Tech & Engineers Emmys are awarded to a living individual, a company or a scientific or technical organization for developments and/or standardization involved in engineering technologies that either represent so extensive an improvement on existing methods or are so innovative in nature that they materially have affected television. They are voted on by a committee of engineers working in television that consider technical developments in the industry and determines which, if any, merit an award.
A pair of Television Technology Pioneers also were feted tonight: Maurice Leblanc, for the first suggestions of color TV and the use of the cathode-ray tube, and Paul Nipkow, conceived a complete television system and was the first to patent it.
“The Technology & Engineering Emmy Award was the first Emmy Award issued in 1949 and it laid the groundwork for all the other Emmys to come,” NATAS president and CEO Adam Sharp said in a statement. “We are extremely happy about honoring these prestigious companies, again in partnership with NAB, where the intersection of innovation, technology and excitement in the future of television can be found.”
