GoPro – The World’s Most Powerful Action Cam Just Won an Emmy

GoPro, Inc. (NASDAQ: GPRO) has announced that the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences has recognized the company with a 2021 Technology & Engineering Emmy® Award, in the category of In-Camera Sensor and Software Stabilization. This Emmy® is in recognition of the technology powering GoPro’s industry-leading HyperSmooth video stabilization. The feature is found in the company’s full line of cameras but its latest version is unbeatable in the HERO10 Black and MAX cameras.

I’ve put Hypersmooth on the GoPro Hero 10 to the test several times and have always been surprised with the result.

“I’m so proud of our team and GoPro’s thriving culture of innovation, This Emmy recognizes our passionate commitment to innovation in hardware and software over the past two decades.” 

GoPro Founder and CEO, Nicholas Woodman

This is GoPro’s second Emmy® Award. The company was recognized in 2013 for its groundbreaking HERO3 camera technology in the category of Inexpensive Small Rugged HD Camcorders – enabling production professionals to capture engaging perspectives never before possible. 

The Technology & Engineering Emmy® Awards are awarded to a living individual, a company, or a scientific or technical organization for developments and/or standardization involved in engineering technologies that either represent so extensive an improvement on existing methods or are so innovative in nature that they materially have affected television.

This day was so choppy

A committee of highly qualified engineers working in television considers technical developments in the industry and determines which, if any, merit an award. 

“The Technology & Engineering Emmy Award was the first Emmy Award issued in 1949 and it laid the groundwork for all the other Emmys to come, We are extremely happy about honouring these prestigious companies, again in partnership with NAB, where the intersection of innovation, technology and excitement in the future of television can be found.” 

Adam Sharp, CEO & President, NATAS

“As we award this latest class of technology Emmy Awards, it is amazing to look back at all the innovation that our industry has driven in increasingly short periods of time, This latest group typifies that spirit.”

Joe Inzerillo, Co-Chair, NATAS Technology Achievement Committee
