Avid® (Nasdaq: AVID), the leading technology provider that powers the media and entertainment industry, today announced it has been named the recipient of the prestigious Philo T. Farnsworth Award by the Television Academy. The award will be presented to Avid at the 70th Emmy® Engineering Awards on October 24, 2018 in Los Angeles. The Farnsworth Award is annually given to recognize a company, organization or individual for longtime contributions that have significantly impacted television technology and engineering.

The Academy’s Engineering Emmys Committee selected Avid for this award to honor 30 years of continuous, transformative technology innovations, including products that have improved and accelerated the entire editing and post production process for television.
