ARRIS Experts Accept Technology & Engineering Emmy® for MPEG-2 Transport Stream

Arris Team February 17, 2014

Our tradition of award wins got off to an early start this year with an Emmy® at CES. Our own Paul Moroney, SVP of Advanced Research and Development, and Sam Narasimhan, distinguished member of the technical staff, along with four other members of the original standards team, accepted a Technology & Engineering Emmy® Award on behalf of the Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG) for the MPEG-2 Transport Stream.

Paul and Sam were part of the team that created the Transport Stream, which has been instrumental in shaping today’s systems for the transmission, storage, and retrieval of audio, video, and metadata. In fact, all digital TV signals and equipment use this standard for compression. iSuppli estimates that nearly 630 million related devices are shipped each year.

The Technology & Engineering Emmys® are one of the highest honors that can be conferred for innovation in broadcast technology, and this marks the 15th award for ARRIS. Accolades like these are a glowing endorsement of our people’s contributions to the future of our industry. Congratulations to the entire MPEG team on this outstanding achievement!
