Corning Honored with Technology & Engineering Emmy Award
In January, Corning received a Technology & Engineering Emmy® award from The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences for its 1970 invention of low-loss optical fiber.
The award honors breakthrough innovations that materially affected television engineering.
“The ability to view high-quality video at any time of the day, from almost any place on a variety of connected and mobile devices, is commonplace today. But it would not be possible without the broad deployment of optical fiber,” said Corning Executive Vice President Clark Kinlin. “It’s impossible to imagine the television industry today without the virtually limitless bandwidth capability of optical fiber. It was born in Corning labs in 1970, and our scientists haven’t stopped improving it since.”
