They received their Emmy statuettes at the Primetime Emmy Engineering Awards ceremony at Loew’s Hollywood Hotel on October 28, 2015. The Academy states that “An Engineering Emmy Award is bestowed upon individual, company or organization for developments in engineering that are either so extensive an improvement on existing methods, or so innovative in nature, that they materially affect the transmission, recording or reception of television.” Professor Bovik and his colleagues are being recognized for their work on the development of video quality prediction models which have become standard tools in broadcast and post-production houses throughout the television industry, and in particular for the invention of “Structural Similarity (SSIM) Video Quality Measurement.”
