Fraser Jones and Jean Todd of CEDAR Audio USA were on hand to collect CEDAR Audio’s Emmy at the 73rd Engineering Emmy Awards this week at a ceremony held by the Television Academy in Los Angeles.
The Award was presented in recognition of the CEDAR Studio suite of noise suppression and restoration tools, which the Academy noted “was developed specifically to meet the needs of audio professionals in the field of film and television post-production,” adding that “it has grown to provide a wide range of tools for cleaning and restoring audio.”
These include dialogue noise suppressors as well as Retouch, the process that introduced spectral editing.
“CEDAR Studio allows,” the statement concluded, allows “users to eliminate a wide range of problems and provides unsurpassed results quickly and efficiently.”
Fraser Jones, who is President of CEDAR Audio USA said of collecting the award: “It was truly amazing that CEDAR was honoured along with the finest engineers in the television and film industry at the 2021 Engineering Emmy Awards. The brilliant CEDAR team in the UK was unable to attend so I was delighted to receive the Emmy for them. It was a truly stunning event.”
Gordon Reid, Managing Director of CEDAR Audio continued, “We were unable to travel to the ceremony from the UK because of the on-going restrictions, so we were thrilled that Fraser and Jean were able to attend. Winning an Emmy is a singular honour, so I would like to thank everyone at CEDAR for making this possible, Fraser and Jean and, of course, everyone at the Television Academy for recognising our work and conferring this Award.”
