Grammy-winning engineer Geoff Emerick and audio equipment manufacturer Shure Incorporated have been named the recipients of the 2003 Technical Grammy Award. The Technical Grammy Award is presented to individuals and/or companies who have made contributions of outstanding technical significance to the recording field.

Formal acknowledgment of the Technical Grammys will be made on February 22 at an event surrounding the 45th Annual Grammy Awards ceremony, which will be held at New York's Madison Square Garden on February 23. This year, the Academy, CBS and Cossette Productions are breaking new ground by providing the Grammy Awards in High-Definition TV and 5.1 surround sound.

"The creative fearlessness of Geoff Emerick and the immeasurable contribution that Shure Incorporated has made to the world of audio are the achievements of true visionaries," said Producer & Engineers Wing director Leslie Lewis. "Emerick's groundbreaking and skillful techniques continue to inspire generations, and Shure's audio equipment consistently sets the standard for excellence. The world would have sounded very different without the contributions of our honorees."

The first Technical Grammy was awarded in 1994; past winners include Robert Moog, Apple Computer, Les Paul, Digidesign's Pro Tools, Dr. Thomas Stockham Jr., Ray Dolby, Rupert Neve, George Massenburg, Sony/Philips, Georg Neumann GmbH, Bill Putnam and AMS Neve.
