Linear Acoustic Wins Technology & Engineering Emmy
Broadcast-audio control-systems developer Linear Acoustic has received its first Emmy Award for Outstanding Achievement in Engineering/Technical Development from the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. The award recognizes the company’s pioneering development of a real-time audio/metadata processor for conforming audio to the recently established ATSC loudness standard.
The Linear Acoustic team received its award Jan. 6 at a gala ceremony in Las Vegas.
“It’s great to be here among television’s technical luminaries,” said Linear Acoustic President Tim Carroll in accepting the award. “Not too many years ago, we were deciding on a company name. Tonight, Linear Acoustic received the most prestigious award in our industry.”
Carroll was joined on stage by Linear Acoustic SVP of Global Sales Christina Carroll, Chief Engineer Erik Booth, and audio algorithm engineer/inventor Leif Claesson.
