Hollywood Chamber to honor Ray Dolby posthumously with star on Walk of Fame

The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce will honor the late Ray Dolby with the 2,540th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Thursday, January 22, 2015 at 11:30 a.m. PST. The star in the category of Motion Pictures will be dedicated in front of The Dolby Theatre at 6801 Hollywood Boulevard. “We are very happy to add acclaimed Dolby sound system engineer and inventor Ray Dolby to the Walk of Fame,” stated Leron Gubler, President/CEO of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce. “Everyone in the world has experienced the most amazing audio emanating from film screens around the world. Ray Dolby is part of our cinematic history and we are proud to add his star to the Hollywood Walk of Fame.”

Helping emcee and Hollywood Chamber President/CEO Leron Gubler to unveil the star will be Francis Ford Coppola and Mrs. Dagmar Dolby.

Born in Portland, Oregon, Ray Dolby is recognized around the world for developing groundbreaking audio technologies that revolutionized the recording industry and enabled cinema sound to deliver the same emotional intensity as images. He founded Dolby Laboratories in 1965 and created an environment where scientists and engineers advance the science of sight and sound to produce spectacular experiences. Dr. Dolby’s pioneering work in noise reduction and surround sound led to the development of many state-of-the-art technologies, for which he holds more than 50 US patents. Dolby Laboratories continues to deliver breakthrough audio and video technologies that transform entertainment.

Dr. Dolby was known for his insatiable curiosity and attributed his success to a quest for education fostered by supportive parents. Early in Dr. Dolby’s career, while attending high school on the San Francisco Peninsula and then Stanford University, he worked at Ampex Corporation and was the chief designer of all electronic aspects of the first practical videotape recording system.

In the nearly 50 years since Dr. Dolby founded Dolby Laboratories, the company has transformed the entertainment experience from the cinema to the living room to mobile entertainment. Tens of thousands of films and billions of products and devices with Dolby technologies have made their way to theatres, homes, and consumers’ hands around the world. The industry has awarded Dolby Laboratories with 10 Academy Awards® and 14 Emmy® Awards for its groundbreaking achievements throughout the years. Today, the company’s audio and imaging technologies are an essential part of the creative process for recording artists and filmmakers, who continue to use Dolby® tools to bring their visions to life.

Among Dr. Dolby’s awards and honors are:

·         The National Medal of Technology, received from President Clinton (1997)

·         The Order of Officer of the British Empire (O.B.E.), awarded by Queen Elizabeth II (1987)

·         Honorary doctorate in science (Cambridge University, 1997)

·         Honorary doctorate (University of York, 1999)

 

Dr. Dolby was awarded the following industry awards:

·         Oscar® statuette from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS, 1989)

·         Oscar Class II (plaque) from AMPAS (1979)

·         Emmy Awards from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, including for the invention of the Ampex® video tape recorder and his work for Dolby Laboratories (1989, 2005)

·         Grammy® award from the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (1995)

·         Berlinale Camera award from the Berlin Film Festival (2012)

·         George Gund III Award from the San Francisco Film Society (2013)

 

Dr. Dolby also received medals from the following professional institutions:

·         Audio Engineering Society (AES) Silver (1971) and Gold (1992) Medals

·         Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) Edison Medal (2010)

 

As a former Marshall Scholar, Dr. Dolby was also awarded the George C. Marshall Award in 2003. He was inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame in the United States and the Royal Academy of Engineering in the United Kingdom in 2004.

In 2012, the iconic Hollywood landmark known to the world as the home of the Academy Awards was renamed the Dolby Theatre® and the site of the post-Oscars gala was renamed the Ray Dolby Ballroom in honor of Dr. Dolby.

Together, Dr. Dolby and his wife, Dagmar, were active in philanthropy and supported numerous causes and organizations. In recent years, two centers of science, research and patient care opened with their support: the Ray and Dagmar Dolby Regeneration Medicine Building (which houses the Eli and Edythe Broad Center of Regeneration Medicine and Stem Cell Research center at the University of California, San Francisco) and the Ray Dolby Brain Health Center at the California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco.

Hollywood Chamber to honor Ken Ehrlich with star on Walk of Fame

The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce that television producer Ken Ehrlich will be honored with the 2,541st star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Wednesday, January 28, 2015 at 11:30 a.m. PST. The star in the category of Television will be dedicated in front of the historic Capitol Records Building at 1750 N. Vine Street.

 “It is time we honor the man who successfully elevated and transformed the artists and their music we love into memorable moments on live Television,” said Leron Gubler, President of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce. “Ken Ehrlich’s magical productions have touched millions of people watching these shows around the world and we are pleased to welcome him to our family of stars on Hollywood Walk of Fame.”

The star ceremony will be streamed live on www.walkoffame.com.

Helping emcee and Hollywood Chamber President/CEO Leron Gubler to unveil the star will be John Legend, Stevie Wonder and LL Cool J.

While the Grammy Awards are what Ken Ehrlich is best known for, his 47-year history as a television producer is filled with living examples of how Ehrlich’s creative spark and judgment has left viewers with memorable moments on the small screen, whether they be a studio full of blues legends paying tribute to Muddy Waters (“Soundstage” 1974), 350,000 fans in Times Square celebrating the NFL kickoff season with Bon Jovi, Enrique Iglesias and Alicia Keys (NFL KICKOFF SHOW, 2003), or Mick Jagger and Buddy Guy closing the show in the East Room of the White House with special guest President Barack Obama singing “Sweet Home Chicago” (In Performance at the White House; Red, White and Blues, 2012). All of these moments and so many more have come to be known as “Ken Ehrlich moments,” and they’re the most admired, and most imitated segments of live event television.

Among Ehrlich’s many achievements and innovations in the world of music television are the creation of the “MTV Movie Awards” and the “VH1 Divas” shows, which changed the face of music and led to the rise of female artists in popular music. Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Shania Twain, Alicia Keys, Celine Dion and many more benefitted from appearances on Divas shows. For the past several years, Ken and his company AEG Ehrlich Ventures LLC, have produced a series of shows from the East Room of the White House and have brought artists from Bob Dylan, Justin Timberlake, Aretha Franklin to Ariana Grande, BB King and others in performance in front of the First Family. In 2014, Ehrlich achieved a remarkable hat-trick, producing the 56th Grammy Awards show and then moving next door to the LA Convention Center to bring Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and a room full of superstars together to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan show. The latter show was so successful that CBS network repeated it an unprecedented second time within the week the following Wednesday night!

Ehrlich believes that artistic excellence in music is a moveable feast, and demonstrates his commitment to that premise by, as he says, ‘connecting the dots.’  His creation of the concept of Grammy moments’ musical performances which unite artists from different generations, genres or disciplines that ultimately go to demonstrate the universal nature of music and seeks to unite generations. Whether it be Beyonce and Tina Turner, Eminem and Elton John, Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen, Dave Grohl and Joe Walsh, Neil Diamond and Barbra Streisand, Bruno Mars, Sting, Rihanna and the sons of Bob Marley, Ehrlich brings people together and creates television experiences that are unique and unifying. So much so that in addition to numerous awards and nominations, he has been honored by the Producers Guild of America with its Visionary Award, and Billboard Magazine has named him one of the “Power 100” in the music industry. But beyond all the star-studded spectacles that Ehrlich has created and produced over the years, he is most proud of shows he has done that have served to make a difference. Among those shows are an HBO special he did in 1988 that paid tribute to the contribution of our Vietnam vets; an epic celebration of Nelson Mandela upon his release from prison; the reopening of the New Orleans Superdome one year after Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans (U2 and Green Day performed), and then a similarly-themed six hour special aired only three weeks after Katrina from Madison Square Garden which raised $10M for the residents of that city; and a tribute to the people of New York City and John Lennon, presented two weeks after 9/11. He also produced the US side of the Live 8 event in 2005.

Ehrlich has always been available when called upon to contribute his creativity as well as his staff in support of charitable causes. He produced several all-star non-televised events for Katie Couric’s Colon cancer organization, produced several more for Los Angeles’ Entertainment Industry Foundation, and in addition to being a member of the Board of Directors of the Grammy Museum, has produced and raised significant funds for the Museum through benefits, evenings at the Museum, etc. He has produced several City of Hope Award dinners, and a series of fundraising concerts in support of the fight against breast cancer (for Lifetime Television). In the last two presidential campaigns, he produced some extremely high profile and influential benefits for President Barack Obama.  In 2011, Ken directed Celine Dion’s Las Vegas show, which is one of Las Vegas’ most successful and long running star driven offerings.  

He is a longstanding member of both the Directors Guild of America and the Writers Guild of America and he has maintained a strong supporting stance of the importance of keeping entertainment industry jobs here in Hollywood.
