The award was given by the Advanced Imaging Society (AIS) for technical achievement at their 6th annual technology and new products awards ceremony at Paramount Studios in Hollywood.

I believe that our commitment to creating technological breakthroughs is our biggest differentiator, and I wholeheartedly support the effort to help drive our industry forward by constantly raising our own bar.”

“I’m delighted to accept this award on behalf of the PFW technology development team. Having the opportunity to work on some of the best 3D content with the biggest studios in the world is a great honor, and being tasked with finding solutions and developing ever more efficient ways of working is both rewarding and gratifying. It’s a privilege to be working for a dynamic company that is constantly breaking new ground and pushing the boundaries of what is possible in stereo conversion,” said Greenham.
