Ray Dolby, Audio Pioneer and Founder of Dolby Laboratories to Be Honored with Posthumous Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce will honour the late Ray Dolby with the 2,540th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Thursday, January 22, 2015 at 11:30 a.m. PST. 

The star in the category of Motion Pictures will be dedicated in front of The Dolby Theatre at 6801 Hollywood Boulevard. “We are very happy to add acclaimed Dolby sound system engineer and inventor Ray Dolby to the Walk of Fame,” stated Leron Gubler, President/CEO of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce. “Everyone in the world has experienced the most amazing audio emanating from film screens around the world. Ray Dolby is part of our cinematic history and we are proud to add his star to the Hollywood Walk of Fame.”

Helping emcee and Hollywood Chamber President/CEO Leron Gubler to unveil the star will be Francis Ford Coppola and Mrs. Dagmar Dolby.

Born in Portland, Oregon, Ray Dolby is recognized around the world for developing ground-breaking audio technologies that revolutionized the recording industry and enabled cinema sound to deliver the same emotional intensity as images. He founded Dolby Laboratories in 1965 and created an environment where scientists and engineers advance the science of sight and sound to produce spectacular experiences. Dr. Dolby’s pioneering work in noise reduction and surround sound led to the development of many state-of-the-art technologies, for which he holds more than 50 US patents. Dolby Laboratories continues to deliver breakthrough audio and video technologies that transform entertainment.

Dr. Dolby was known for his insatiable curiosity and attributed his success to a quest for education fostered by supportive parents. Early in Dr. Dolby’s career, while attending high school on the San Francisco Peninsula and then Stanford University, he worked at Ampex Corporation and was the chief designer of all electronic aspects of the first practical videotape recording system.

In the nearly 50 years since Dr. Dolby founded Dolby Laboratories, the company has transformed the entertainment experience from the cinema to the living room to mobile entertainment. Tens of thousands of films and billions of products and devices with Dolby technologies have made their way to theatres, homes, and consumers’ hands around the world. The industry has awarded Dolby Laboratories with 10 Academy Awards® and 14 Emmy® Awards for its ground-breaking achievements throughout the years. Today, the company’s audio and imaging technologies are an essential part of the creative process for recording artists and filmmakers, who continue to use Dolby® tools to bring their visions to life.

Among Dr. Dolby’s awards and honours are:
·         The National Medal of Technology, received from President Clinton (1997)
·         The Order of Officer of the British Empire (O.B.E.), awarded by Queen Elizabeth II (1987)
·         Honorary doctorate in science (Cambridge University, 1997)
·         Honorary doctorate (University of York, 1999)
 Dr. Dolby was awarded the following industry awards:
·         Oscar® statuette from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS, 1989)
·         Oscar Class II (plaque) from AMPAS (1979)
·         Emmy Awards from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, including for the invention of the Ampex® video tape recorder and his work for Dolby Laboratories (1989, 2005)
·         Grammy® award from the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (1995)
·         Berlinale Camera award from the Berlin Film Festival (2012)
·         George Gund III Award from the San Francisco Film Society (2013)
 Dr. Dolby also received medals from the following professional institutions:
·         Audio Engineering Society (AES) Silver (1971) and Gold (1992) Medals
·         Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) Edison Medal (2010)

As a former Marshall Scholar, Dr. Dolby was also awarded the George C. Marshall Award in 2003. He was inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame in the United States and the Royal Academy of Engineering in the United Kingdom in 2004.

In 2012, the iconic Hollywood landmark known to the world as the home of the Academy Awards was renamed the Dolby Theatre® and the site of the post-Oscars gala was renamed the Ray Dolby Ballroom in honor of Dr. Dolby.

Together, Dr. Dolby and his wife, Dagmar, were active in philanthropy and supported numerous causes and organizations. In recent years, two centres of science, research and patient care opened with their support: the Ray and Dagmar Dolby Regeneration Medicine Building (which houses the Eli and Edythe Broad Centre of Regeneration Medicine and Stem Cell Research centre at the University of California, San Francisco) and the Ray Dolby Brain Health Centre at the California Pacific Medical Centre in San Francisco.
