Ray Dolby passes away: What was the audio pioneer’s Indian connection?

Oscar Award-winning sound designer Resul Pookutty talked about it on Twitter

Ray Dolby, owner of Dolby Laboratories, passed away at his home in San Francisco, Thursday. He was suffering from Alzheimer’s disease for several years. He was 80. Dolby is known for inventing the Dolby noise-reduction system and surround sound, a technology still used in the process of filmmaking and music.

Oscar Award-winning sound technician Resul Pookutty is saddened by the demise of famous sound engineer Ray Dolby and says no one will be able to replace him.

“R.I.P Ray Dolby. The man who has given us all the power to vision film sound. We will miss you. It’s a very, very sad day for us,” Pookutty posted on Twitter.

“Ray Dolby was the modern day Thomas Alva Edison. Your void will never be filled, I can’t think of film sound without you. We bow to your excellence,” he added.

Pookutty, who won an Academy Award for best sound mixing for the 2008 movie Slumdog Millionaire, pointed out Dolby’s Indian connection. “In every film I strive to create a silence his inventions allowed me to create in film strips! Like Steve Jobs, he also had an India connection,” Pookutty posted.

“They say his main invention of data compression technique that allowed us to have Dolby sound in films came to him on his trip in the Himalayas,” he added.
