Adobe Pass Earns Primetime Emmy Engineering Award

We’re thrilled to announce that Adobe Pass, Adobe’s TV Every­where solu­tion, will be hon­ored by The Acad­emy of Tele­vi­sion Arts & Sci­ences and pre­sented with an Emmy Engi­neer­ing Plaque, a recog­ni­tion for out­stand­ing engi­neer­ing achieve­ments for emerg­ing tech­nolo­gies, at the 64th Prime­time Emmy Engi­neer­ing Awards on Octo­ber 24th. The Acad­emy is rec­og­niz­ing Adobe for its con­tri­bu­tion to drive TV Every­where adop­tion across the indus­try.

Adobe Pass, a key com­po­nent of Adobe’s Project Prime­time, has become the indus­try leader in TV Every­where tech­nol­ogy in less than two years and is now sup­ported by more than 150 US oper­a­tors as they deliver hun­dreds of mil­lions of authen­ti­cated streams for major live events such as The Olympic Games, March Mad­ness, Euro Soc­cer Cup, NBA Play­offs and live news cov­er­age via mobile apps from pro­gram­mers like CNN. Lead­ing media com­pa­nies includ­ing Via­com, NBCU, Fox, Dis­ney, ESPN, Car­toon Net­work and Scripps Net­works depend on Adobe Pass for viewer authen­ti­ca­tion across more than 40 live sites and apps across desk­tops and mobile devices today.

Approx­i­mately 98 per­cent of pay TV house­holds in the U.S. are now able to view TV con­tent via the Adobe Pass authen­ti­ca­tion ser­vice and con­sumers are push­ing TV Every­where adop­tion to an all-time high. Given the track we are on, we expect every major TV show to be avail­able via a TV Every­where app within the next two years. Thanks to all our part­ners who helped make Adobe Pass a great suc­cess and a key dri­ver for the trans­for­ma­tion of the TV indus­try as we know it today!
