NEP Denali’s Healy Is Part of Team Given TEC Award for Outstanding Audio Engineering
Live events on television, whether based on sports or music, are among the most high-pressure activities on earth: You get only one chance to get it right. That’s the emphasis behind awards that acknowledge the ability to do just that time after time. And that includes the Technical Excellence & Creativity (TEC) Award for Outstanding Creative Achievement in the Remote Production/Recording or Broadcast given to NEP Denali audio engineer Hugh Healy during the NAMM Show in Anaheim, CA. He was honored for his role as audio engineering supervisor for the 55th Annual Grammy Awards.
Healy and fellow audio engineers Joel Singer and Mark Linett, of Music Mix Mobile (M3), were nominated as a team for the award by Tom Holmes, lead production mixer for the 55th Annual Grammy Awards. NEP Denali provided mobile broadcast facilities and engineering support for the program.
In addition to numerous entertainment shows, NEP Denali has also been called on for coverage of major live sports events, including at the 2012 ESPN Summer X Games, Golf Channel’s 2013 Humana Challenge tournament, and Turner Sports’ 2013 MLB National League Championship Series.
“The NAMM TEC Award is a unique honor because it recognizes technical achievement, an area that tends to be more ‘behind the scenes’ in live entertainment production,” says Healy. “I was proud to serve with an outstanding team of audio professionals for the 55th Annual Grammy Awards, including my fellow award recipients, Joel and Mark, who did an outstanding job of mixing the musical acts for the show.”
Healy specializes in providing audio-engineering solutions for a broad range of live television productions, including the Academy Awards, Grammy Awards, and Academy of Country Music Awards. He has served as the primary audio engineer for NEP Denali for more than 14 years.
