Ottawa-based Ross Video has received the Emmy award for technology and engineering from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) for its Primestream management system.

The system allows broadcasters to access media assets remotely, which enables broadcasters to access content creation workflows remotely and across geographically dispersed facilities quickly and efficiently.

“We are delighted to be able to provide this production flexibility and advantage to our customers, and honoured to be recognized with this prestigious award,” said David Ross, CEO, in a news release. “Primestream asset management allows our customers to realize the full advantage of cloud-based production.”

“In addition to allowing broadcasters to collaborate between multiple locations, Primestream asset management system enables hybrid access models for both on-premise and remote work across the globe to their advantage in producing high-quality daily news shows,” said Alan Dabul, product manager at Ross Video. 

The technology and engineering Emmy was first awarded in 1949. Adam Sharp, CEO and president of NATAS, said the award “laid the groundwork for all the other Emmys to come.”
