Scottsdale, AZ – October 08, 2020 – Evercast, the media and entertainment industry’s leading cloud-based remote collaboration platform built for creatives by creatives, today announced it has been honored with an Engineering Emmy® by the Television Academy.
Relied upon in the production of over 200 nationally televised programs, including “Lost in Space” on Netflix, “Chernobyl” on HBO and “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on ABC, Evercast is the first and only virtual workflow resource that combines full video conferencing, HD live-streaming, and full-spectrum audio in a single, easy-to-use web-based platform. Unlike other creative collaboration platforms, Evercast requires no file sharing, no proprietary or complex hardware, and it features ultra-low, blink-of-an-eye latency, enabling creative teams to optimize their workflow and increase productivity.
"Thank you to the Television Academy and content creators in the industry. We are deeply honored to receive the Engineering Emmy and extremely grateful to our clients who have trusted Evercast to seamlessly bring some of the best shows on television to life,” said Alex Cyrell, CEO and Co-Founder of Evercast. “Few of us are given an opportunity to innovate while making a meaningful difference in people’s lives and in their work -- and we are humbled by the opportunity to do so."
“For us, creating a turn-key solution for remote collaboration meant reimagining the digital experience to mirror the ease and productivity of a team working shoulder-to-shoulder in the same room,” added Brad Thomas, COO and Co-Founder of Evercast. “I couldn’t be prouder of our incredible team who has made the journey possible.”
“As a film editor who’s struggled to find balance in my life for close to thirty years, I am so grateful to the Academy for acknowledging our team’s work at Evercast,” said Roger Barton, veteran film editor and Co-Founder of Evercast. “Our mission is to facilitate the creative process by empowering artists to collaborate on their own terms. My sincere hope is that the more efficient we become as filmmakers, the more free time we’ll have to embrace life and love, thereby enabling us to create better, more meaningful art.”
Evercast was founded to help those like broadcast producers, directors, editors and sound mixers to maintain creative momentum, eliminating the need to commute long hours or travel post-production crews around the world for months at a time—creating more flexibility in their lives and saving money in the process.
As such, Evercast has been playing a meaningful role in supporting the media and entertainment industry through the pandemic. As production regulations keep many in the industry working remotely, media creators are also realizing how working remotely with Evercast can maximize resources and bring creativity to a new level—far beyond the constraints of a pandemic.
“We’ve been able to use Evercast in different ways in our post-production workflows, including streaming a virtual control room to staff working at home. Its stability and quality have helped keep us in business,” said Tony Romero, Supervising Producer, “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”
Evercast is embodying the future in its democratization of content creation, leveling the playing field of talent by providing organizations access to any creative, no matter where in the world they are located.
"I’m thankful there was this tool that helped me do work with an editor without flying through eight time zones,” said Craig Mazin, Producer, “Chernobyl.” “Suffice it to say, I think it would have gotten done, but at a much higher cost of misery to me and my family had I not been able to rely on Evercast!"
The Television Academy’s Engineering Emmy Awards Committee presents the Engineering Emmys to developments in engineering that are either so extensive an improvement on existing methods or so innovative in nature that they materially affect the production, recording, transmission or reception of television.
The Engineering Emmy Award will be presented to Evercast at the virtual ceremony streamed live on Emmys.com on Thursday, Oct. 29, at 5:00 p.m. PDT. For more information on Evercast’s solutions, visit https://www.evercast.us.
