Last night in Las Vegas, as the NAB Show was kicked off by the 70th Annual Technology & Engineering Emmy® Awards ceremony, W3C representatives accepted our second Emmy® Award. The prestigious industry award recognizes our work to standardize a Full TV Experience on the Web.
Among the myriad web technologies that the Web Consortium develops, HTML5 has brought videos to the Web, ending the era of plug-ins for media playback. The standards at the core of all web media applications today have turned the Web into an unprecedented media platform, which mixes professional and user-generated content, available anywhere, anytime, on any device, and to anyone.
This marks the second Technology & Engineering Emmy® Award that W3C has received. In 2016 W3C was awarded a Technology & Engineering Emmy® Award for its work on the Timed Text Mark-up Language standard. W3C is grateful for our community and all those who work to build standards and technologies for the web. You can read more in the W3C Blog.
