iZotope Inc., a leading audio technology company, has been honored by the National Academy for Television Arts and Sciences with an Emmy Award for Outstanding Achievement in Engineering Development for RX Audio Repair Technology. The Engineering Emmy is presented to an individual, company or organization for engineering developments so significant that they materially affect the transmission, recording or reception of television.
"We are incredibly proud to be recognized by the Academy for the development of iZotope RX," says Mark Ethier, CEO of iZotope, Inc. "iZotope's customers have helped shape RX into what is today – their feedback has been invaluable as we've refined RX's workflows and strengthened its processing power. We are excited to be recognized as a game-changer in the television and broadcast industries and are sincerely humbled by this award."
For audio professionals in the television industry, RX is now the standard for rescuing audio from the cutting room floor. With remedies for noise, clipping, hum, buzz, crackles, unwanted reverb and more, iZotope's RX visual audio repair technology is the fastest, easiest way to repair and restore audio, the company says. RX makes it possible to clean up dialogue that has been spoiled by weather conditions, microphone issues, equipment buzz, and sudden noises like dog barks, sirens and much more.
A highlight of RX is its powerful spectrogram, which exposes details hidden in a standard audio waveform. By revealing a rich visual display of audio frequency over time, RX allows engineers to detect and isolate problems with innovative selection tools. In addition, RX features intelligent modules that are carefully designed to tackle specific audio problems. Whether used as a standalone software application, or as plug-ins within industry standard editors, RX integrates with any post-production workflow. To meet the demands of a fast-paced production schedule, post-production studios worldwide use RX to transform troubled recordings into professional grade, broadcast ready audio, iZotope says.
RX Audio Repair Technology will be honored among YouTube, Aspera, Digital Dailies, and Lightcraft Technology on Oct. 23, 2013 at the Lowes Hollywood Hotel.
