SAN MATEO, CALIF. (Jan. 14, 2014) ­­– GoPro
today announced that the National Academy of Television Arts and
Sciences has recognized the company with a 2013 Technology and
Engineering Emmy® Award in the category of Inexpensive Small Rugged HD
Camcorders. GoPro was selected for its groundbreaking HERO3 camera
technology, which has enabled television production professionals to
capture engaging perspectives that were never before possible.

Grams thoughts => Congrats to GoPro, a great product, with
exceptional image quality, that has taken over the sports POV market. As
Nic mentions in his speech, they now have 670 employees, and when I
first dealt with them back in 2007, the staff was much smaller (maybe 15
or so). The most interesting thing he mentions is that if you like the
HERO3 and HERO3+, you ain’t seen nothing yet! Can’t wait to see what
that means.

GoPro Founder and CEO, Nicholas Woodman, accepted the Emmy
on behalf of the company at a ceremony held in Las Vegas on Jan. 9.
Celebrating the distinguished honor bestowed upon the company and
recognizing the GoPro team for their contributions to the award, Woodman
stated, “An idea is just an idea unless you have an incredibly talented
team of engineers who can make it a reality.”

The
Emmy Award recognizes the mark GoPro has made in the professional video
production industry. “That the best selling consumer camera in the
world has also been so enthusiastically adopted by film and television
professionals is something we’re very proud of,” Woodman notes. “It’s a
testament to the quality and versatility of our products and our passion
for enabling the world to capture incredible content.”
