The Cinema Audio Society will pay tribute to the late Ray Dolby at the upcoming 50th Annual CAS Awards. The founder of Dolby Laboratories will be honored for his groundbreaking audio technologies, for which he holds more than 50 U.S. patents. “It seems fitting in the 50th year of the CAS, that as we award the latest in Technical Achievements for production and post-production sound, we pause and remember Ray Dolby, a true pioneer of the sound community,” CAS President David Fluhr said in a statement. The tribute will include rare video footage of Dolby accepting the CAS Life Achievement Award at the 1989 CAS Awards. Dolby also will be honored by the Motion Picture Sound Editors at the Golden Reel Awards on February 16. The 50th CAS Awards will be held on February 22 at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel in downtown Los Angeles.
