The most recent cineSync customer showreel. Cospective’s remote shot review and approval tool has just been awarded an Engineering Emmy Award, while Avid wins a corporate lifetime achievement award.

Remote shot review and approval tool cineSync and editing tools developer Avid have both been recognised at the 70th Engineering Emmy Awards for their work in advancing broadcast technology.

The awards will be presented on 24 October at a ceremony at LA’s Mariott Hotel.

Cospective completes double of Emmy and Academy Awards with cineSync
Cospective’s remote shot review tool cineSync was one of five products to receive Engineering Emmy Awards this year, completing the double with its 2011 Scientific and Technical Academy Award.

The system, which has been used on Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead and Stranger Things, makes it possible for clients and VFX houses in different parts of the world to review high-resolution footage in sync.

The Emmy Award citation notes the way it has “revolutionised the way in which television shows can be pitched, produced and delivered by opening the doors to seamless international collaboration”.

Avid – itself a previous winner of a standard Engineering Emmy Award for its Media Composer editing software – wins the Philo T. Farnsworth Corporate Achievement Award.

The Emmy citation describes its pioneering work in developing digital nonlinear editing technology as “reimagining and restructuring how television and film content was created”.

Other awards this year go to Artemis Pro, Chemical Wedding’s ‘digital director’s viewfinder’ iPhone app, alongside advances in RAW digital negatives, headphone technology and set lighting.
