Less than a handful of people in AV have ever won an Emmy Award. One of them is Dan Dugan — and he’ll receive his Emmy live during the 72nd Engineering Emmy Awards on Thursday, Oct. 29. Dan Dugan started in “AV” back in 1965. And his 55+ year career has included a handful of inventions used by over a dozen companies, and he’s being recognized for “Outstanding Achievement in Engineering Development” for lending his expertise in audio technology to countless TV shows. Gary had a chance to connect with Dan in this awesome video interview, where he talks about how he got into AV and what drove him to design the industry’s first microphone mixer. He’s humble but amazingly accomplished. Enjoy!
