Unity Software has won its first Technology and Engineering Emmy Award for ‘3D Engine Software for the Production of Animation’.
This is as a result of the work done alongside Disney Television Animation on the recently released ‘Baymax Dreams’ shorts. The Cinemachine and Timeline technologies within Unity made these shorts a reality.
The Academy noted that Unity’s technology showed excellence in engineering creativity and materially affected the television viewing experience. There are also many AR and VR possibilities all inbuilt to the assets of the stories.
“We’re thrilled that the technical achievements powered by Unity and demonstrated in Disney Television Animation’s ‘Baymax Dreams’ are being celebrated by The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences,” said Isabelle Riva, Head of Made with Unity. “As recognised by the academy, the real-time revolution is happening now and Unity is proud to support partners as they blaze trails in this space.”
This year’s recipients will be honored at the 70th Annual Technology & Engineering Emmy Awards on Sunday, April 7, 2019 in Las Vegas, NV in partnership with the NAB Show/conference.
