Apple was a prominent part of CES even though it didn’t have a physical presence at the trade show. Not only were there a large number of iOS and OS X vendors on the show floor, Apple was also awarded a Technology & Engineering Emmy for its iCloud service.
As reported by The Loop, the Emmy recognizes “an individual, company or to a scientific or technical organization for developments and/or standardization involved in engineering technologies which either represent an extensive improvement on existing methods or are so innovative in nature that they materially have affected the transmission, recording or reception of television.”
Apple won the award for its “”Eco-system for Real Time Presentation of TV Content to Mobile Devices without the use of Specialized Television Hardware.” It’s not entirely clear what ecosystem the award recognizes, but we presume it has to do with iCloud.
The Emmy was awarded at an event at the Bellagio Ballroom in Las Vegas.
