At the annual ceremony of Academy Awards three winners: David Thomas, Lawrence Fisher and David Bundy received a prestigious Oscar for Technical Achievement, after 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.
In giving the award, the Academy recognized the individuals who developed the Lectrosonics Digital Hybrid Wireless System for advancing “the state of wireless microphone technology by developing a method to digitally transmit full-range audio over a conventional analog FM radio link, reducing transmitter size, and increasing power efficiency.”
“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.”
Lectrosonics has had a technical hand in the past of movies such as “Glory,” “Driving Miss Daisy,” “Apollo 13,” “Les Miserable,” “Whiplash,” “The Revenant,” “The Martian,” “The Bridge” “ Interstellar,” “Rogue One, Star Wars Episode 7,” “Oceans 11” (12 and 13) … “There are literally hundreds,” Moore noted.
