Consumer Electronics Show in the US to host technical Emmies next year

MUMBAI: The International Consumer Electronics Show (Ces) which takes place in Las Vegas each year will host the Technology and Engineering Emmy Awards for the first time next year.
The Technology & Engineering Emmy Awards will be CES’ opening evening event on 8 January 2007. The tradeshow will be held in Las Vegas from 8-11 January 2007 and will celebrate its 40th anniversary.

The technology and engineering Emmy awards honour achievements in two areas. One area is science and technology for television. This includes broadcast, cable and satellite distribution. The second area is advance media technology.

This encompasses interactive television, gaming technology, and for the first time, the Internet, cellphones, private networks, and personal media players. In addition, for the first time, Emmy awards will be presented for the best use of advanced media technology by commercials as well as programmers.

Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) president and CEO Gary Shapiro says, "As Ces becomes a global cultural event featuring the best of technology and content, we are thrilled to partner with the Emmy Awards to announce at Ces the best in science and technology for television.

"For the content, technology and engineering industries, CES is the place to be this January. We look forward to helping promote the world famous Emmy Awards at Ces."

National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (Natas) president and CEO Peter Price says, "The International CES has long been the launch pad of entertainment technology. So it is fitting that our Technology & Engineering Emmy Awards, which recognise achievement in both television engineering and advanced media technology be showcased there. With the National Television’s Academy’s new efforts this year to recognise television anytime anywhere with Emmy Awards for content and technology, this move is particularly fitting."

The National Television Academy is currently accepting entries for the advanced media technology Emmy awards in nine categories. In order to be eligible, the production must occur from 1 May 2005 to 30 April 2006. The entry deadline is 22 September 2006. The advanced media technology entries will be judged by panels of industry professionals in New York later this year.

Among the keynote speakers for the 2007 International CES will be Microsoft chairman Bill Gates, Motorola chairman of the board and CEO Ed Zander, and Disney president and CEO Robert Iger. CES will also feature product debuts from 2,700 exhibitors, covering more than 30 product areas, including the latest in wireless, digital imaging, mobile electronics, home networking and more.
