The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences awarded an Emmy Award in the Technology and Engineering section to Nokia's Media Technologies Research department.
This might sound surprising but it did happen. Nokia was given the award in the past too, and the latest one makes the fourth Emmy to the Finnish mobile telecom giant.

Nokia Won Emmy Award Again for the Fourth Time
Nokia's Media Technologies Research department was considered worthy of the award for its role in the development of ISO Base Media File Format standardization, a part of the MPEG-4 standard used in video streaming.
This format paved way for the creation of the HEIF (High-Efficiency Image File Format) format also developed by Nokia. It leads to an improved way of storing and sharing images. It can be enabled in the camera app of some Nokia devices.
Proud to announce that The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences granted a Technology & Engineering Emmy Award to the ISO Base Media File Format standardization, in which our multimedia research unit has played a major role. #video #nokiainnovates #techemmys @TheEmmys pic.twitter.com/HCAHFDi4c3

Many do believe Emmy is mainly for movie stars but the organizers have deemed it fit to patronize the achievements in the technology promoting the movie industry.
