A Technology and Engineering Emmy Award is given by the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) for outstanding achievement in technical or engineering development. An award can be presented to an individual, a company, or to a scientific or technical organization for developments and/or standardization involved in engineering technologies which either represent so extensive an improvement on existing methods or are so innovative in nature that they materially have affected the transmission, recording, or reception of television. The award is determined by a special panel composed of highly qualified, experienced engineers in the television industry.

The Philo T. Farnsworth Award is a non-competitive award presented as part of the Primetime Engineering Emmy Awards to "an agency, company or institution whose contributions over time have significantly impacted television technology and engineering." Named for Philo Farnsworth, the inventor of the first fully working all-electronic television system and receiver, the winner is selected by a jury of television engineers from the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences’ (ATAS) Engineering Emmy Awards Committee who consider "all engineering developments which have proven their efficacy during the awards year and determines which, if any, merit recognition with an Engineering Emmy statuette." The accolade was first awarded in 2003 as a result of about a year of lobbying to ATAS by Farnsworth's wife Pam Farnsworth and Hawaii-based Skinner Entertainment management and production firm owner Georja Skinner.

A Primetime Emmy Engineering Award is an award given most years by the Television Academy, also known as the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (ATAS). It is a Primetime Emmy Award given specifically for Outstanding Achievement in Engineering Development. According to the Television Academy, the Primetime Emmy Engineering Award is presented to an individual, company or organization for engineering developments so significant an improvement on existing methods or so innovative in nature that they materially affect the transmission, recording or reception of television. The award, which is Television's highest engineering honor, is determined by a jury of highly qualified, experienced engineers in the Television industry.
DTV Innovations is a US-based, privately held company that develops software and hardware which enable television broadcasters to deliver programming reliably to their viewers, specifically through inclusion of data conforming to Program and System Information Protocol (PSIP), mandated by the FCC. PSIP data, as defined by the American Television Standards Committee (ATSC) Standard A/65, is a collection of tables and information designed to operate within every digital broadcast transport stream and includes critical data which describes the information at the system and event levels for all virtual channels carried within a broadcaster’s transport stream. Without this PSIP data, broadcast programming cannot be received or viewed by any television receiver. Additionally, PSIP is the basis for the Electronic Program Guide which is displayed on all ATSC-compatible digital TV receivers and used by viewers to review information regarding the program and make selections for viewing and recording.
