Lectrosonics is very proud to announce that David Thomas, Lawrence E. Fisher and David Bundy will receive a 2017 Academy Award for Technical Achievement, for advancing the state of wireless microphone technology in the design, development and engineering of the Lectrosonics Digital Hybrid Wireless® System. Presented annually by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the Technical Achievement Academy Awards recognize contributions of significant value to the process of making motion pictures.
“We are so delighted to see our engineers receive this honor. These three engineers have made significant contributions to location sound, enhancing the movie experience,” says Gordon Moore, CTS, President of Lectrosonics. “To see their accomplishments recognized by the Academy is truly exciting.”
The Academy’s Science and Technical Achievement Awards ceremony will take place on Saturday, February 11, 2017 at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills, CA. Unlike the other Academy Awards to be presented this year, achievements receiving Scientific and Technical Awards need not have been developed and introduced during 2016. Instead, these achievements represent a proven record of contributing significant value to the process of making motion pictures.
Portions of the Scientific and Technical Awards Presentation will be included in the Oscar® telecast. The 89th Oscars® will be held on Sunday, February 26, 2017, at the Dolby Theatre® at Hollywood & Highland Center® in Hollywood, and will be televised live on the ABC Television Network at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT. The Oscars also will be televised live in more than 225 countries and territories worldwide.
