Media 100 has been awarded a National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) Emmy Award for outstanding technical achievement, and for its impact on the television-broadcast industry.

The reward was granted to Media 100 for the company’s work in the development of high-quality, non-linear editing solutions that have enabled the creation, editing and delivery of movies from personal computers. This has helped create a new breed of TV producer and raised the standard for computer-generated, broadcast-quality images, says the Academy.

John Molinari, Media 100’s chief executive officer, said: "This recognition by NATAS is extremely gratifying to all of us at Media 100, and we are proud to have played a significant role in what has emerged as one of the most powerful communications mediums in history."
