TNDV Founder Nic Dugger and his production colleagues at NATAS successfully executed the live stream broadcast of the 74th Annual Technology & Engineering Emmy® Awards, presented by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences on Sunday, April 16, 2023, during the 100th National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) convention in Las Vegas.

The event recognised innovations and achievements in television technology and engineering from ARRI, Harmonic, MultiDyne and NEC among other visionary organisations.

Dugger and his production colleagues produced and delivered the live stream from a state-of-the art LED Volume virtual studios at the Vû Las Vegas. The Vû’s LED Volume virtual studio allowed real-time rendered, full-motion imagery to splash onto curved LED panels that engulf the physical set. “The use of the LED Volume studio on this awards show produced a visually captivating and immersive virtual set experience for our honorees, guests, and audience,” Dugger said. “For a show based around technology and ingenuity, it was fitting to be in a facility that allowed attendees and viewers alike to feel like they were immersed in a cutting-edge environment.”

This year's event marks the second time that Dugger has been in the director’s chair. He and his crew worked closely with Delroy Binger, Head of IT Services for NATAS, who oversaw distribution of the live stream to global audiences. Binger and Dugger worked together on three Emmy Award show productions since NAB Show 2022, including the Daytime Emmy® Awards live broadcast in June, and two exclusively live-streamed productions: The News and Documentary Emmy® Awards in October, and the Children and Family Emmy® Awards, held for the first time in December.

Dugger also worked closely with Head of NATAS Production & Events Lisa Armstrong. Dugger and Armstrong have worked together on previous Emmy® Awards shows when Dugger served as technical producer, including the virtual versions of the News and Documentary Emmy® Awards, and Sports Emmy® Awards that were streamed live from Nashville during the pandemic.

Each year, a committee of highly qualified television engineers considers technical developments in the industry to determine which, if any, merit an award. This year’s ceremony honored 2022 winners, including MultiDyne and ARRI for their development of a digital cinema camera-mounted video extender for live audiences; Harmonic, Comcast, and Intel for pioneering the development and deployment of a virtualized cable modem; WSC, IBM, Comcast, and Google for AI-ML curation of sports highlights, and Nobukazu Teranishi and NEC for the invention and development of the pinned photodiode now used in most image sensors.
