Edison-based Orion Innovation honored with 3rd Technology & Engineering Emmy Award

Digital transformation and product development firm Orion Innovation was recently honored with a Technology & Engineering Emmy Award in the category of Pioneering Development of Technologies by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.

Edison-based Orion was awarded the honor for an innovative technology developed and deployed as part of its Zodiac IP Stack offering, which is part of its Digital Product Engineering Center of Innovation, which provides advanced cloud and device software and engineering services for Tier 1 media and telecom operators.

The technology recognized during the 73rd Annual Technology & Engineering Emmy Awards ceremony enables Tier 1 carriers to collect and analyze TV viewership data, key to advanced advertising monetization.

Orion’s Zodiac team won its second Emmy Award in 2013 for its pioneering work in the implementation and deployment of network DVR, and its first Emmy Award in 2005 for outstanding achievement in interactive television for an interactive television service.

“We are honored to participate in another prestigious Emmy Award for our groundbreaking work in the cable and television industry,” Raj Patil, CEO and president of Orion, said in a statement. “This award is another recognition of the innovative and transformational technology our team delivers to global operators to help them stay ahead of today’s fast-moving media and entertainment industry and the depth of our domain and technology expertise.”

“On behalf of Orion, I want to thank NATAS for this amazing honor,” Rich Neill, chief technology officer of Orion’s Zodiac offering said. “Our team is committed to building and deploying next-generation applications to help our Tier 1 global operating partners enhance the user experience and increase revenues. This latest Emmy Award shines another light on Orion’s deep industry expertise and engineering capabilities.”
