Technology & Engineering Emmys 2020 Winners Unveiled

January 27, 2021

The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences is out with the winners of the 72nd annual Technology & Engineering Emmy Awards. The trophy ceremony will take place October 10 in partnership with the National Association of Broadcasters as part of its fall NAB Show in Las Vegas.

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 qualified engineers working in television who considers technical developments in the industry and determines which, if any, merit an award.

“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.”
