SKC Technologies is proud to share the announcement that was made at the 68th annual Technology & Engineering Emmy Awards that the MOS Group has received an Emmy for “Development and Standardization of Media Object Server (MOS) Protocol.” Sean Cullinan, founder and president of SKC Technologies, has been a contributor to the MOS Group since the year 2000 and was awarded a replica Emmy Statue for his contributions towards this effort.
A Technology and Engineering Emmy Award is given by the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) for outstanding achievement in technical or engineering development. An award can be presented to an individual, a company, or to a scientific or technical organization for developments and/or standardization involved in engineering technologies which either represent so extensive an improvement on existing methods or are so innovative in nature that they materially have affected the transmission, recording, or reception of television. The award is determined by a special panel composed of highly qualified, experienced engineers in the television industry.
The MOS Protocol has enabled nearly all production equipment in media centric newsrooms to interoperate freeing customers to chose vendor agnostic best of breed solutions rather than a solution from a single vendor. By allowing Character Generators, Video playback servers, teleprompters, and other key production gear to speak a common language customers can choose their preferred vendor in each of these product classes enabling more efficient workflows and higher quality productions.
Sean’s work on the MOS Protocol was done while working for US Viking, LLC on the Associated Press ENPS product line. SKC Technologies continues to provide consulting services on this project and Sean will continue to take an active role with the MOS Protocol. If you have a product that needs to “speak” MOS consider SKC Technologies as a solutions provider for your project!
