CULVER CITY, Calif., Oct. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Digital Dailies®, the patented technology at the heart of DAX, the leading provider of production workflow and media asset management applications and services to the entertainment industry, along with its inventor and company co-founder Josh C. Kline, have been honored by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences with a Primetime Emmy® Engineering Award for Outstanding Achievement in Engineering Development.
DAX CEO Patrick Macdonald-King said, "Kline's pioneering vision for Digital Dailies® and our company's dedication have led the industry's transition to file-based workflow in the cloud. We thank the Television Academy for recognizing the significant role that Digital Dailies® play in the television industry. We feel the honor is shared by our many clients, using our technology to make great shows, and by DAX's talented staff who are committed to serving the industry with the best tools and support."
"It's an honor to be recognized by the Television Academy for Digital Dailies® which grew out of my passion for innovation and the creative process," said Josh C. Kline, "The proliferation of Digital Dailies® throughout the industry, as a tool used by television's top talents, is an amazing and deeply satisfying culmination of our work."
In making the announcement of this year's Emmy® Engineering Awardees, the Television Academy identified Digital Dailies® as "the impetus for significant television industry change by distributing production dailies and cuts via a web-based, streaming approach. Digital Dailies also has provided content security in the forms of both encryption and watermarking the system. This was rapidly adopted due to its secure, fast, reliable and low-cost delivery to anyone with an Internet connection, over which shots can be approved and annotated with frame-accurate comments. Having launched in the era of film, Digital Dailies® has bridged the gap to today's file-based workflows through its advanced metadata processing that enabled a clip-based paradigm."
TV shows using Digital Dailies® and DAX racked up 53 nominations and 9 wins at the 2013 Primetime Emmys®.
Television shows currently using the DAX platform include: Homeland, The Big Bang Theory, NCIS, CSI, Bones, New Girl, The Walking Dead, America's Next Top Model, The Mentalist, Two and a Half Men, Glee, How I Met Your Mother, Dexter and Mad Men, Orange Is The New Black, and all pilots for Warner Bros. Television Studios, CBS Television Studios, 20th Century Fox, Fox Television Studios, A&E, Showtime, and Lionsgate Television.
