Original JPEG receives Engineering Emmy Award, Los Angeles, USA, 2019
On October 23, 2019, the Original Joint Photographic Experts Group was awarded an Engineering Emmy Award at a ceremony at JW Marriott Hotel Los Angeles, California, USA.
The Original JPEG group was represented by Dr. István Sebestyén and Gregory K. Wallace, people who actually participated the creation of the original standard.
Unfortunately however the Emmy statue was given to the present JPEG group - who did not participate in any way in the original standard's work. They later decided to hand
over the statue to ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 29, the parent sub committee of the present JPEG group, also not involved in the original work.
