Digital Media Companies Get The Emmy Nod

I wonder how mainstream media executives feel about seeing Revver getting nominated for an Emmy.

Is it an acknowldgement that the true innovation in media is coming from companies that are developing web-based applications for such offerings as video networks?

Jeremy Toeman writes that a whole group of new digital media companies are getting nominated this year in the technology category.

Beet.tv has a quote from Shelly Palmer, chairman, advanced media technology Emmy Awards. This is one to save:

“I am extremely pleased with the Advanced Media Technology Emmy Awards nominee class of 2006.¬† This is the year of online video, social networks, user generated content and citizen journalism and, once again, our nominees exemplify the very best work done in their respective fields. In a very real sense, all of the nominees are winners — their work has pushed the limits of technology and creativity, and given all of us in the media industry wonderful demonstrations of what is possible and, more importantly, a glimpse of things to come. Congratulations to all!”

Hmm…what will the Oscars bring?
