For the first time, the ceremony will stream live on Emmys.com on Thursday, October 29 at 5:00 PM PDT.
Engineering Emmys is presented to a person, company or organization for development in engineering that is either so comprehensive an improvement of existing methods or so innovative that they significantly affect the production, recording, transmission or reception of television. This year, the academy recognizes nine companies and five individuals with the prestigious award, including Apple which has been awarded an Engineering Emmy Award for Exceptional Engineering Development for ProRes.
Apple ProRes was introduced in 2007 and has become a ubiquitous video codec in the movie and TV industry. It provides excellent preservation of source video quality, and thanks to innovative algorithm design, fast coding and ultra fast decoding. These two features – combined with Apple’s industry licensing and certification support – make ProRes one of the most widely used codecs for end-to-end content creation workflows: from high-quality acquisition to high-performance editing, color correction, broadcast and playback, and FX creation to master content and archiving .
MacDailyNews Note: Apple ProRes codecs deliver a unique combination of multistream, real-time editing, impressive image quality and reduced storage speeds. Apple ProRes codecs take full advantage of multi-core processing and have fast, low-resolution decoding modes.
All Apple ProRes codecs support all frame sizes (including SD, HD, 2K, 4K and 5K) in full resolution. Data rates vary based on codec type, image content, frame size, and frame rate. For more information on Apple ProRes video codecs, visit: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202410
