Pinnacle Systems receive technical achievement Emmy

The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) have awarded Pinnacle Systems a prestigious Emmy for technical achievement.
The company's ninth Emmy is being given to Pinnacle for developing groundbreaking advanced technology that uses low-resolution proxies to facilitate editing and broadcast of news and other programs.
"Receiving this Emmy is a tremendous honour," said Kim Fennell, CEO and President of Pinnacle Systems. "We are proud to help advance the state of television art by leveraging the huge investments made by others and ourselves to make broadcast work behind the scenes easier and more efficient. Winning the most prestigious award in our industry underlines Pinnacle Systems' commitment to staying in the forefront of video technology."
Pinnacle's Vortex technology enables a broadcaster to simultaneously encode a high resolution, broadcast-ready copy and a lower resolution copy of their video.
This lower resolution copy requires dramatically less bandwidth and storage, making it easily distributable over ubiquitous, low-cost networks. Standard, inexpensive desktop computers can replace traditional specialised video workstations, enabling a far greater number of users than ever before possible to edit video from PCs located anywhere in the building or around the globe.
The system automatically synchronises those edit decisions with the high-resolution video which is then played back out to air.
