Apple has won an Engineering Emmy for 'ProRes RAW' and Apple's Animated Film 'Wolfwalkers' comes to Apple TV+ on December 11
The Television Academy on Thursday revealed winners of its 72nd Engineering Emmy Awards, with four of the nine companies honored for developing and deploying remote production technology that has become invaluable in a year in which the industry saw widespread shutdowns because of the coronavirus pandemic, reports Deadline.
Evercast, HP Inc’s ZCentral Remote Boost, Sohonet’s ClearView Flex and Teradici were singled out by the TV Academy "for recognition in addressing issues related to COVID-19."
Other winners include the companies and individuals behind Apple ProRes, CODEX RAW Workflow (ProRes - Final Cut Pro) and Epic Games for its real-time 3D Unreal Engine. A total of nine companies and five individuals will receive Emmys this year
Introduced in 2007, Apple ProRes has become a ubiquitous video codec in the film and television industry. It offers excellent preservation of source video quality and, thanks to innovative algorithm design, fast encoding and ultra-fast decoding. These two properties—combined with Apple’s industry licensing and certification support—make ProRes among the most widely used codecs for end-to-end content-creation workflows: from high-quality acquisition to high-performance editing, color correction, broadcast ingest and playout, and FX creation to master content distribution and archiving.
