McDSP Wins Emmy Award!

SA-2 Dialog Processor

The Academy of Television Arts and Sciences has honored McDSP's SA-2 Dialog Processor with a 2017 Emmy® Award for Outstanding Achievement in Engineering Development.

The Engineering Emmy is presented to an individual, company or organization for engineering developments that are so significant an improvement on existing methods or so innovative in nature that they materially affect the transmission, recording or reception of television.

The SA-2 Dialog Processor has been recognized for its role in improving the overall sound of recorded speech for some of television's most popular shows. The SA-2 is based on hardware originally conceived by Academy Award winning re-recording mixer Mike Minkler and used on over 100 major motion pictures. Though the SA-2 is designed to improve the overall sound of recorded speech, it's not just for dialog. It's also equally useful for vocals, and is a great tool for adjusting the timbre of any track, a reliable de-esser, and a fine multi-frequency compressor.

"Receiving our first Emmy is a tremendous honor and we are very grateful for the Television Academy's recognition," said McDSP Founder & CTO, Colin McDowell. "We'd like to thank our clients who continue to use our software on so many popular shows. Iit is their dedication to bringing the best sound to the audience that inspires us to continue developing new ways to make their needs a reality."

SA-2 Dialog Processor

Dialog. The focal point of any movie, television show, documentary, or for that matter, any creative media production involving the spoken word. Add to the mix a sweeping musical score, dozens of foley effects, and plenty more - and it becomes clear the job of dialog mixing is a tall order. After all, if you can't hear what the actors are saying, why watch it at all!!
