Founder and chief innovation and strategy officer Bogdan Frusina expressed Dejero’s excitement over the win.

“We are honoured to have won such a prestigious award,” he stated in the release, “we started this journey a decade ago, driven by the desire to solve the connectivity challenges of television journalists in the field. We are proud to have greatly simplified and dramatically reduced the cost of broadcasting live from remote locations, helping to transform how news and live event coverage is delivered.”

The Technology and Engineering Emmy Awards is an annual accolade from the National Academy of Television Arts. It is given to individuals, companies or organizations that create innovations in the field of transmissions, recording or the reception of television.

The Waterloo-based company was given ‘Pioneering Reliable Transmission Method for Live Contribution and Distribution TV Links’ Emmy for helping “broadcasters contribute live content from the field, providing news gathering crews with greater flexibility from where they can transmit a live shot, and at a fraction of the cost of conventional uplink technology,” according to the release.

Previous winners include Apple TV, Netflix, Microsoft, YouTube and Sony.

Dejero will be recognized at the 70th annual Technology and Engineering Emmy Awards held in Las Vegas on April 7.
