October 23, 2019: JPEG received a Technical Emmy Award:
Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG) has been universally adopted to preserve high-quality imagery in television production and its tangential yet essential workflows. The nascent JPEG standard was introduced in 1992 by an international collegium of industry-leading engineers initiated and overseen by the multimedia study group of the International Telecommunication Union, the coding of still pictures working group of the International Organization for Standardization and the International Electrotechnical Commission. With a level of foresight and dedication to the key principles of royalty-free open standards, practical implementation in both hardware and software, and the ability to add in options as required, the JPEG team did groundbreaking and game-changing work of lasting value to the television industry.
