CEA Technology and Standards Dept Honored at NABRecognized for Standards Development and Broadcast Services Projects (April 19, 2005)
The National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) department of Science and Technology honored the Consumer Electronics Association's (CEA) Technology and Standards Department during a dinner last night held in conjunction with the 59th annual NAB Broadcast Engineering conference. NAB honored CEA for work conducted over the years on standards and projects for broadcast services.
Upon accepting the honor on behalf of the association, CEA President and CEO Gary Shapiro stated:
"It is a great honor for CEA to receive this special recognition from NAB. This honor represents the hard work of our many volunteer leaders and staff, both past and present. And it's particularly appropriate and humbling that we receive this recognition from NAB as we have a long and distinguished history of cooperation on technical standards. Indeed, it sometimes seems that the headlines only come when we have differences. But the truth is that together, we have changed the world.
"Our work has transformed cultures, blurred geographic borders, brought the sights and sounds of localized events to the world. And now, together, we are the vanguard of the digital revolution, bringing instantaneous access to information, entertainment and education content in a clarity of sight and sound that was only imagined by the early pioneers. Together, we can celebrate our collective past accomplishments even as we move forward to create new wonders."
