SMPTE honors Birney Dayton with Progress Medal

The Society of Motion Picture & Television Engineers honored SMPTE fellow Birney Dayton, NVISION’S founder, chairman of the board and CTO, with its SMPTE Progress Medal at a gala celebration last week in Hollywood, CA.

Dayton joins the ranks of previous SMPTE Progress Medal recipients Walt Disney (1940, motion picture photography and sound recording of feature and short cartoon films), Vladimir Zworykin (1950, developer of television) and Ray Dolby (1983, theater sound and continuing work in noise reduction and quality improvements in audio and video systems).

Dayton, a SMPTE member for more than 30 years, was honored for the design and engineering of numerous industry-changing, digital audio, SD/HD products and technologies. Dayton has played a key role in the SMPTE standards committees, including the development of standards for HDTV, and also was chairman of the ACATS Systems Subcommittee Working Party 1 during the development of the ATSC standard.
