BT has won a prestigious industry accolade – an Emmy® Award – for the way it connects television companies to the BT Tower to distribute live footage.
The Emmy Awards recognise past and present achievements in the global television industry – including technology innovations – with the U.S National Academy for Television Arts and Sciences awarding BT for its original Facilityline product which connects TV companies to the BT Tower for live television distribution.
BT’s global media and broadcast division has won the Emmy® award in the category of ‘Pioneering and Productization of Supporting Digital Video using SDI over Fiber-Optic’. The award will be formally presented to BT in April at the 2018 National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) conference and exhibition in Las Vegas.
Mark Wilson-Dunn, vice president of BT Media & Broadcast, said: “I’m absolutely thrilled with our Emmy award! This is a top-tier media industry award and to be recognised in this way is a fantastic endorsement of our track record of leading the industry, and also a great way to frame the world-leading innovation which we are still bringing to the industry today.”
