ALC NetworX Scoops Technical & Engineering Emmy Award

News Image
ALC NetworX has been honoured with a Technical & Engineering Emmy Award from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) for the 'Development of synchronised multi-channel uncompressed audio transport over IP networks'.

The 71st edition of the Emmy Awards for Engineering & Technology will be hosted at the Wynn Encore Hotel and Spa on Sunday April 19th during the forthcoming NAB Show in Las Vegas.

According to NATAS, Technology & Engineering Awards are awarded to individuals, companies or scientific/technical organisations for developments and/or standardisation 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.

"Receiving a Technology & Engineering Emmy Award is a great honour, and clear recognition that Audio-over-IP transport in broadcast is no longer a technology of the future – it's here, it's now and it's here to stay," said RAVENNA evangelist Andreas Hildebrand of ALC NetworX. "What was considered a genuine revolution back in 2007 when Philipp Lawo first evoked his vision of what became RAVENNA, and later formed the basis for AES67 in 2013, is now an accepted – and essential – part of broadcast workflows. Having first launched at IBC in 2010, this year RAVENNA celebrates its 10th anniversary, so to be honoured with an Emmy Award seems a fitting tribute to the difference we have made to the industry over the last decade.

"I am proud to share this achievement with my colleagues from the AES, Audinate, QSC, Telos Alliance, Wheatstone and of course Kevin Gross who was, and still is so instrumental in leading the AES67 task group. The release of the AES67 interoperability standard in 2013 was a turning point for the future of AoIP transport and synchronised workflows. The work continues as we strive collectively to continue to improve performance for streaming and media transport globally."
