USA/Denmark - DPA Microphones co-founder Jens-Jørn Stokholm and R&D manager Ole Moesmann will soon be bestowed with an Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Technical Achievement Award for the innovative development of the brand’s high-performance, miniature lavalier microphone technology.
The pair’s accomplishment is among 17 scientific and technical achievements to be honoured by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in a virtual Scientific and Technical Awards presentation on Saturday, 13 February. The ceremony will be available on the Oscars website starting at 1pm PT.
The Academy’s Scientific and Technical Awards honour those whose discoveries and innovations have contributed in significant and lasting ways to motion pictures. First developed by Stokholm in 1996, DPA’s 4060 Omnidirectional Miniature Microphone continues to be a popular solution for sound designers and film sound engineers around the world.
Since its development, DPA has expanded its miniature microphone into a complete product line, which also includes the 4061, 4062, 4063 and 4071 miniature mics, as well as the 6060 and 6061 subminiature mics.
An expert in the miniaturization of electronic and electro-mechanical devices, Stokholm initially began developing miniature microphone technology for the hearing aid industry. Later, he and his business partner Dan Ingemann Jensen, joined forces with DPA Microphones Co-founders Ole Brøsted Sørensen and Morten Støve to develop a miniature microphone for the professional audio industry based on his original hearing aid technology.
“I want to express our most sincere gratitude to the Academy for this notable honour,” says Stokholm. “DPA’s miniature technology has long been one of my proudest achievements, and I am so excited for it to be recognized by such an exceptional organization within our industry. I am thrilled to share this award with Ole, as well as with every member of the DPA team, and I look forward to where the brand will venture into the future.”
“Thank you to all of the members of the Academy who took the time to recognize the long history that DPA has had in the film industry over the past several decades,” says Moesmann. “We are incredibly grateful for and humbled by this achievement, which would not have been possible without Jens-Jørn’s technology nor the dedication of all DPA R&D team members throughout the years. Everyone here at DPA Microphones looks forward to continuing to develop groundbreaking solutions to benefit filmmaking for many more years to come.”
