Thomson (Euronext Paris: 18453; NYSE: TMS) is among the winners of the 59th Annual Technology and Engineering EmmyÂ® Awards for Science, Engineering and Technology for Television, organized during CES by the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS).
Marking the 20th Emmy Award that Thomson has received, the 59th Technology Emmy Awards was presented at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.
Thomsonâ€™s technology, including its Granite MPEG Monitoring equipment, has been awarded an Emmy Award in the category of â€œMonitoring for Compliance Standards for ATSC and DVB Transport Streams.â€? This yearâ€™s Technology and Engineering Emmy Awards were among the most competitive ever, with a 75 percent increase in the number of entries.
This Emmy Award results from the on-going success of the Granite MPEG Monitoring range of equipment and continued R&D effort to support forthcoming standards and formats such as H.264 and transport over IP. This is the second Technology Emmy for Thomsonâ€™s test and measurement products, the other being for its real-time MPEG Analyzer, which was awarded in 1999.
The Technology and Engineering Emmy Awards honor achievements in two areas: Science, Engineering and Technology for Broadcast Television, which includes broadcast, cable, and satellite distribution, and secondly, Science, Engineering and Technology for Broadband and Personal Television, encompassing interactive television, gaming technology, as well as the Internet, cell phones, private networks, and personal media players.
â€œWeâ€™re honored that Thomson has once again been recognized for all the hard work and dedication that our engineering teams devote to developing technologies, products, and systems that our customers need to be successful,â€? said Jacques DunoguÃ©, Senior Executive Vice President of the Systems Division within Thomson.
