Waves Audio, the world’s leading developer of professional audio signal processing technologies and plugins, will be among the recipients of the upcoming 75th Engineering, Science & Technology Emmy® Awards, held Wednesday, Oct. 18, 2023. The award will be presented by the Television Academy to Waves Audio’s Meir Shashoua (CTO), Yaniv Alon (DSP Team Leader) and Shai Fishman (Product Manager), for their development of the Waves Clarity Vx Pro.
Engineering, Science & Technology Emmy Awards are presented to an individual, company or organization for developments in engineering, science and technology that are either so extensive an improvement on existing methods or so innovative in nature that they materially affect the production, recording, transmission or reception of television and thereby have elevated the storytelling process.
Widely adopted by leading television and film post-production professionals since its introduction in 2022, Clarity Vx Pro is a revolutionary noise-reduction plugin that uses the cutting-edge and powerful Neural Networks® engine developed by Waves, to separate dialogue from ambience at the highest quality without artifacts and in real time, which sets a new standard in post-production. Addressing today’s post-production needs, Clarity Vx Pro allows for real-time processing and vastly speeds up and enhances the workflow of dialogue editing and mixing. Clarity works in most DAWs (digital audio workstations) to create immediate, clean results without having to render, bounce, duplicate or consolidate tracks. It allows editors and mixers to listen to the dialog processing as part of the whole mix in context. For more information, please visit waves.com/plugins/clarity-vx-pro.

We are thrilled that Clarity Vx Pro has found a home in the toolbox of so many of the talented pros that help create today’s television and film landscape. Thank you for this prestigious award.”
