Audio Engineering Society Honors Dolby’s Ioan Allen with Silver Medal Award

Allen recognized for outstanding achievement in the field of audio engineering at the 127th AES Convention in New York
Dolby Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE: DLB) today announced that Ioan Allen, Senior Vice President at Dolby Laboratories, will be presented with the Silver Medal Award at the 127th Audio Engineering Society (AES) Convention at the Javits Center in New York. Allen is receiving the award in recognition of his "outstanding contributions, sustained over four decades, to motion picture sound, including audio recording and playback technology, operational standards, equipment, and the acoustics of cinemas."

Established by the Society in 1953—and originally called the Emile Berliner Award in honor of audio pioneers Alexander Graham Bell, Emile Berliner, and Thomas Edison—the AES Silver Medal honors professionals whose work represents exceptional developments or achievements in the field of audio engineering. Prior recipients in the area of film sound engineering include John Frayne, Ray Dolby, and Tomlinson Holman.

"I would like to personally congratulate Ioan Allen on this accomplishment and thank him for his contributions in advancing audio for the motion picture industry," said Wieslaw Woszczyk, Audio Engineering Society Awards Committee Chair. “Year after year, we continue to recognize members who have dedicated time and effort to the advancement of knowledge and professional practice in audio engineering. Today we are pleased that Mr. Allen is amongst the coveted list of Silver Award recipients.”

Allen’s list of accomplishments in the audio industry extends back to 1969, the year he joined Dolby Laboratories. Allen was in large part responsible for the origination and development of all the major audio advancements emanating from the Dolby film program and has been a fellow of the AES since 1980. Often recognized for his work in the film industry over the years, Allen has been
the recipient of awards from the National Association of Theatre Owners and the BKSTS, and was honored with the Samuel L. Warner Award from the SMPTE. He is an adjunct professor in film sound at the University of Southern California, and has an honorary doctorate from the University of Nottingham in the UK. Allen received Scientific and Engineering Awards from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in 1979, 1987, 2001, and 2004, and was awarded an Oscar® in 1989. 

“It is a great honor and pleasure to be named a recipient of this prestigious award,” said Allen. “I would like to thank the Society for recognizing my work in the advancement of motion picture audio.”
