Academy Award of Merit (Statuette)
Manfred G. Michelson (Technical Film Systems Inc) for the design and development of the first sprocket-driven film transport system for color print film processors, which permits transport speeds in excess of 600 feet per minute, which originally received a Scientific and Engineering Award in 1990. This film transport system has had significant effect on the design of film processors and on the economics of the film processing industry.
Panavision, Inc. for the Auto Panatar anamorphic photographic lens, which originally received a Scientific and Engineering Award in 1958. The Auto Panatar is a complete motion Picture camera lens system containing both the prime and anamorphotic elements, which substantially reduce photographic lateral distortion and thereby improve closeup quality and overall definition.
Scientific and Engineering Award (Plaque)
Fritz Gabriel Bauer for the design, development and manufacture of the Moviecam Compact Modular 35mm motion Picture camera system, which features quiet operation, light weight and ease in reconfiguring from one mode to another.
Mark Leather, Les Dittert, Douglas Smythe, George Joblove for the concept and development of the Digital Motion Picture Retouching System for removing visible rigging and dirt/damage artifacts from original motion Picture imagery. This system does not require frame-by-frame painting by the operator and exhibits no image degradation even under large-screen theatrical projection.
Technical Achievement Award (Certificate)
David Degenkolb for the development of a Silver Recovery Ion Exchange System to eliminate hazardous waste (silver ion) in wash water and allow recycling of this water, resulting in significantly lower environmental impact and reduced water consumption.
Michael Dorrough for the design and development of the compound meter known as the Dorrough Audio Level Meter, which provides a single-scale presentation of peak levels and energy content with a high correlation between the complex signals present and the acoustic output.
Harry J. Baker for the design and development of the Ronford-Baker Metal Tripods for motion Picture photography, which have proved to be more rigid, durable and trouble-free than the wooden tripods previously used.
Gary Nuzzi, David Johnsrud, William Blethen for the design and development of the Unilux H3000 Strobe Lighting System, a high-speed strobe lighting system that generates a high intensity light pulse with a duration of only 1/100,000 of a second, the effect of which is to freeze an object moving at a high rate of speed so it can be photographed with extraordinary sharpness.
Wally Mills, Gary Stadler (design), Gustave Parada (design) for the concept and design of the Cinemills Lamp Protection System, which provides a process that prevents the early failure of 20 kilowatt lamps by maintaining essentially uniform current flow to the lamp filament as it heats and changes resistance.
