NET, Nebraska’s Public Broadcasting System and National Public Radio stations, earned three Emmy awards from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Heartland Chapter.
In the first award, NET was recognized for technical achievement in the building of its successful 360-video production unit.
“It’s exciting to be honored for experimenting with new technology and for using technology to tell stories in impactful ways,” said Chad Davis, assistant general manager of emerging media.
In addition, a NET 360-degree video, “Prairie Fire: Controlling Invasive Species,” earned an award in the environment–feature category. A television program, “Nebraska Stories: Vietnam,” also won in the magazine–series category.
The Heartland Chapter honors original content created for traditional broadcast mediums as well as non-traditional and emerging platforms for broadband and portable delivery.
