VIZIO Wins Emmy® for Smart TV OS Innovation

VIZIO Wins Emmy® for Smart TV OS Innovation



We’ve always said that our ownership of both the hardware and the software bringing TV to households worldwide offers unique benefits to content providers, advertisers, and viewers alike. 


Today, we’re pleased to say the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences agrees. For the second time in as many years, the Academy has honored VIZIO with an Emmy® Award for Technology and Engineering, this time for the “Large Scale Deployment of Smart TV Operating Systems.”

“VIZIO is honored to be recognized by NATAS for our Large Scale OS deployment and as a pioneer in the Smart TV marketplace,” said William Wang, CEO and Founder of VIZIO. “This Emmy® Award underscores our consumer-focused vision and world-class engineering team’s execution to deliver exceptional entertainment experiences for VIZIO users nationwide.”

The foundation of this award, and for much of the innovation that VIZIO has driven over the past 20 years, is our cloud-based architecture, which delivers a faster, more intuitive, and more personalized experience for VIZIO Smart TV users. This includes not only a range of powerful built-in features, but also the ability to customize experiences and enjoy automatic updates to ensure every compatible device has access to the latest content and capabilities. 

Last year, VIZIO was honored with a Technology and Engineering Emmy® Award for Extraction of Granular Census Level Behavioral Data, based on VIZIO’s pioneering work in utilizing our Inscape ACR data to power better viewing experiences for consumers and actionability for advertisers in the TV marketplace.

“Congratulations to the VIZIO team for this well-deserved recognition,” said Joe Inzerillo, Co-Chair of the NATAS Technology Achievement Committee. “Your work showed excellence in engineering creativity and VIZIO once again joins a distinguished group of honorees that are carefully chosen by industry experts and peers.”


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.
