Los Angeles, CA (October 14, 2020)—The Engineering Emmy Awards always honor individuals, companies or organizations for developments in broadcast technology. This year’s edition, to be held Thursday, October 29, is no exception, and those honored will include two audio-oriented award winners—Dan Dugen Sound Design and Sound Radix
Dan Dugan, namesake of Dan Dugan Sound Design, will be awarded an Emmy for “Outstanding Achievement in Engineering Development,” honoring his invention of gain sharing automixing technology. Gain sharing is a unique audio process that helps an audio mixer mix multiple live talkers, automating the robotic part of mixing multiple live talkers, recognizing who’s talking and crossfading them faster than a human can react.
Meanwhile, Sound Radix will be awarded for its work creating Auto-Align Post, which makes phase/time corrections of a moving multi-microphone recording. By dynamically correcting delay and phase between the boom and lavalier microphones as they move around the set, the tool automates what was previously a labor-intensive task for sound editors across the industry.
The 72nd Engineering Emmy Awards will be presented online on Thursday, October 29, at 5:00 PM PDT.
