Evertz today announced that they have earned an Emmy Award for Technology and Engineering from the The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. The award acknowledges Evertz’s work in Live Production Beyond HD to Achieve Non-Interpolated Video for Instant Replay through the use of the company’s DreamCatcher Replay and Live Production Suite.
DreamCatcher’s 4K-UHD HDR live production tools have significantly changed the world of sports broadcasts by allowing users to tell a story in a way it has never been told before. The DreamCatcher system allows operators to zoom in and track key portions of 4K-UHD HDR video using an intuitive touch interface designed for speed and accuracy. Combined with DreamCatcher’s natural smoothing tools the operator can tell a story that is unique in look and pleasing to the critical eye of the viewer.
“It’s an honor to be recognized by the The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences with an Emmy Award for our DreamCatcher 4K Replay system,” Joe Cirincione, Evertz VP of Sports and Entertainment. “As the first to implement a digital zoom on a 4K raster, it’s been fun to change the way the game is viewed and officiating is done. It is through the hard work and dedication of our outstanding engineering team that we were able to achieve this amazing accomplishment. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank everyone in the field who has utilized and trusted DreamCatcher to capture those important moments.”
The 68th Annual Technology and Engineering Awards ceremony will take place on January 7, 2017, at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas during the Consumer Electronics Show (CES).
