CableLabs® Receives Technology Emmy Award from NATAS
Launched in 1948, the Technology and Engineering Emmy® Awards honor development and innovation in broadcast technology and recognize companies, organizations and individuals for breakthroughs in technology that have a significant effect on television engineering.
CableLabs was honored for its development work on Data over Cable Service Interface Specification (DOCSIS®) 3.0 and broadband video. This technology enables cable operators to bond multiple cable channels such that hundreds of megabits per second of data may be delivered to consumers. The technology has been deployed by cable operators around the world.
"This is a great honor bestowed upon CableLabs by the Academy," said its President and CEO Dr. Paul Liao. "Beginning with the leadership of (former CEO) Dick Green, CableLabs has worked very hard to help cable operators become broadband leaders by establishing this standards-based, world class technology."
The Emmy will be presented in Las Vegas on January 6. Among other recipients of Technology and Engineering Emmys this year is Sir Howard Stringer, Chairman and CEO of Sony Corporation. He will receive a Lifetime Achievement Award in Technology and Engineering.
