Sound Radix, developers of innovative software tools to help audio professionals, today announced it was named a winner of the 2020 Engineering Emmy® Award for AUTO-ALIGN POST.
Sound Radix Auto-Align Post makes phase/time corrections of a moving multi-microphone recording. By dynamically correcting delay and phase between the boom and lav microphones as they move around the set, this tool automates what was previously a labor intensive task for sound editors across the industry.
Sound Radix is one of a select few companies to be honored with an Engineering Emmy® Award and was chosen by dozens of industry experts and peers. Presented to an individual, company or organization for engineering developments that considerably improve existing methods or innovations that materially affect the transmission, recording or reception of television.
Sound Radix technology is used on top TV shows, movies and music productions by thousands of award-winning audio editors and music producers around the world.
Engineering Emmys are presented to an individual, company or organization for developments in engineering that are either so extensive an improvement on existing methods or so innovative in nature that they materially affect the production, recording, transmission or reception of television.
The Engineering Emmys are overseen by the Television Academy’s Engineering Emmy Awards Committee, currently chaired by Dr. John Leverence, and award recipients are selected by a jury of television engineers.
This jury considers all engineering developments which have proven their efficacy during the awards year and determines which, if any, merit recognition with an Engineering Emmy statuette.
Nir Averbuch, speaking on behalf of the Sound Radix team said; “Wow, we have no words… We’re humbled and deeply thankful to the academy members for honoring us with the Engineering Emmy Award. Knowing the pressure that sound departments are often under to meet deadlines, it is extremely rewarding to know that we helped make a tough job a little easier. We want the audio community to know that more help is coming from us!”
