Canadian Broadcast Corporation and the New Toronto Group have been nominated for an Emmy Award for Outstanding Achievement in Advanced Media Technology for the Enhancement of Original Television Content for the work on the live uncut CBC ZED Project.

The project used Macromedia Video technologies: Flash, the Flash Communication Server and Flash Video to allow viewers to participate in a live television episode. Viewers could be interviewed live from their home and broadcast nationally over CBC National Television. Other features of the solution were a live picture wall; video clip voting and video messaging. The tool was also used in the Canadian National Elections to allow people to submit a video message to federal candidates.”
