Jun Murai's Emmy® Award Acceptance Remarks

Good evening.

The Web has no boundaries. The potential audience for media on the Web exceeds 4 billion people across the world.

Our organization, the World Wide Web Consortium, known as W3C, is working on technology standards to enable video playback and create a full TV experience on the Web. This is one of the many areas we've been working on.

Among these, HTML5 brought videos to the Web, ending the era of plug-ins for media playback. A few W3C technologies are at the core of all web media applications today. They have turned the Web into an unprecedented media platform, one that mixes professional and user-generated content, available anywhere, anytime, on any device, and to anyone.

So, on behalf of the World Wide Web Consortium, I would like to thank the Academy for recognizing the work of the W3C.

I would of course also like to thank W3C Members and individuals who contributed, some of whom are also being recognized by the Academy tonight, for their work in Standardization of a Full TV Experience.

Thank you.
