Dan Dugan, the inventor of the automatic microphone mixer, will be awarded an Emmy

Dan Dugan, the inventor of the automatic microphone mixer, will be awarded an Emmy at the upcoming 72nd Engineering Emmy Awards. His award, for “Outstanding Achievement in Engineering Development”, honors his invention of gain sharing automixing technology and will be presented in a live-streamed ceremony on Thursday, October 29.

The Television Academy states: “Gain sharing is a unique audio process that helps an audio mixer mix multiple live talkers with ease. There are no upcuts, no missed words and no fluctuations of background noise. The technology allows mixers to easily manage multiple live mics without constantly riding individual input faders—ideal for unscripted events such as talk shows, game shows, news and sports panels, town hall meetings, and debates. Gain sharing automates the robotic part of mixing multiple live talkers, recognizing who’s talking and crossfading them faster than a human can react.”
