On October 24th, Sony was honoured by the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences with a Technical Emmy for its TRIMASTER EL™ OLED monitor technology.
"The National Academy’s Technology and Engineering Achievement Committee is pleased to honour these technology companies and individuals whose innovation and vision have materially affected the way the audience views television and have set the standard for technological excellence in the industry,” said committee Chairman, Robert P. Seidel, Vice President of CBS Engineering and Advanced Technology.
The Emmy Award was received by Gary Mandle, Product Manager, Sony America with Junichi Oshima, VPS Business Division, Sony Japan and Akira Fukashiura OLED Division, Sony Semiconductor Corporation.
Official statement by committee
“The Sony OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) reference-grade monitor incorporates ground-breaking processing and imaging capabilities designed to truly replace CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) in critical viewing. The OLED has transcended the other panels, including CRTs in resolution, colorimetry, black level, magnetism and weight.
"Sony’s OLED is a self-emitting device and can deliver deep blacks, high contrast, accurate color reproduction and quick response with virtually no motion blur. Its organic materials react to the control of the electrical current immediately, and do not emit light in the absence of an electrical current. In this way, the OLED display panel features superb black performance and quick response to fast-motion pictures.
"In addition, Sony’s OLED display panel delivers a wider colour gamut meeting ITU-R, BT-709, EBU, SMPTE C broadcast standards, and conforming to the wider DCI-P3 color gamut. This is breakthrough technology for applications where visual performance and accuracy are paramount, offering an unbeatable combination of image reproduction, colour accuracy, reliability and stability.”
About the Emmy Awards
Similar to the Academy Awards for films, the most prestigious Emmy Awards of the TV industry were founded in 1948 by the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS). The awards are honored to the top-rated programs, actors/actresses, producers and broadcast stations of the TV industry. The Technology & Engineering Emmy Awards were further established in 1955 in recognition of companies, entities, and individuals that have highly contributed to the development of TV and science technologies. Sony received its first award in 1973 for the Trinitron TV. This was the first ever for a TV set to receive the award, and since then, Sony has been honored many Emmy Awards for a variety of the new technologies it has developed.
The Emmy Awards are currently operated by three organizations. The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (ATAS) awards entertainment content such as prime time dramas and comedy shows. On the other hand, the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) honors sports, news, business and documentary programs broadcasted in the so-called "Daytime" hours. And finally, the International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences awards programs outside the United States. These are called the International Emmy Awards.
Awards for technology are run by both the NATAS and ATAS.
