The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences announces the recipients of the 70th Annual Technology & Engineering Emmy Awards. Presentations will take place at the 2019 NAB show in April, 2019.
Robert Seidel, Chairman of the Technology & Engineering Achievement Committee said, “Screen actors are always cited for Oscars. Stage performers are similarly proud of their Tonys. Television journalists are quick to add an Emmy to their resume – and with good reason. We award the Technology & Engineering Emmy Award to these outstanding companies and individuals who are the ‘tool makers’ of the industry that have materially affected the television viewing experience.”
