The IEEE Broadcast Technology Society is delighted to announce that the 2022 Jules Cohen Award is to be presented to Richard Chernock of The United States.
The Jules Cohen Award is the Society’s premier award and recognizes major contributions to the industry, integrity and professionalism, and a record of sharing expertise for the benefit of colleagues, and of the industry as a whole.
“Rich has been a foundational role model. He exhibits all the qualities that the Jules Cohen Award for Outstanding Broadcast Engineering represents. The extent and reach of his impact, and his commitment to client success are self-evident to the broadcast engineering community at large. It’s important to highlight the integrity and professionalism of his work as exemplified by his outstanding work chairing groups in ATSC and his incredible generosity in mentoring so many.”
“Rich is well deserving of this award and recognition as I believe his integrity and commitment to excellence has had a global impact for broadcasters, professional equipment manufacturers, and consumer electronics companies, but perhaps most importantly, broadcast audiences.”
Rich is the former Chief Science Officer at Triveni Digital and former chair of ATSC’s Technical Group 3. He supported the BTS DL program all around the World and also participated giving lectures for University audiences. Rich is highly regarded in the TV industry, not only in the technical side but supporting new generations and industry growth in general.
“These values closely match those of the late Jules Cohen and make this award particularly appropriate” said Peter Symes, Awards Chair for the IEEE Broadcast Technology Society. BTS is honored to award Rich with the 2021 BTS Jules Cohen Award. Rich is a valued member and important contributor to the mission of the society. Congratulations Rich on an amazing career!
