One of our 2001 graduates, Dr. Ali C. Begen (https://ali.begen.net), received an Emmy® Award in Technology and Engineering from the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS).
The academy awards the Technology and Engineering Emmy® Awards to the “tool makers” of the industry that materially have affected the television viewing experience. Dr. Begen has been a member of the MPEG Systems Working Group since 2010. He has co-chaired a group of experts that have developed the ISO standard called Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP (DASH). This ISO standard played a crucial role in providing ubiquitous media access to billions of people worldwide. This year, the DASH standard was among the technologies receiving the highest honor from the academy.
