Steven Tiffen, Jeff Cohen and Michael Fecik of The Tiffen Company, a leading manufacturer of award-winning imaging accessories, were honored with the Scientific and Technical Academy Award of Commendation during the Academys Scientific and Technical Awards presentation on February 7. Portions of the evenings event will be included in the Oscars telecast on Sunday, February 22. Steve Tiffen, Jeff Cohen, and Michael Fecik were recognized for their efforts in developing dye-based filters that reduce infrared contamination when neutral density filters are used with digital cameras.
 
 

“The Tiffen Company identified the problem and rapidly engineered a series of absorptive filters that ameliorated infrared artifacts with lenses of all focal lengths,” the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences cited in its official press release. “These widely adopted filters allow cinematographers to work as they have done with film-based technology.”

The Academy’s Scientific and Technical Awards acknowledge industry experts whose discoveries and innovations have contributed in significant and lasting ways to motion pictures. Tiffen pioneers Steve Tiffen, Jeff Cohen and Michael Fecik are the only recipients of this year’s Academy Award® of Commendation.

“We sincerely thank the members of the Academy for bestowing this tremendous honor upon us,” says Steve Tiffen. “We stand committed to continuing to support this industry that we love, and we find it so wonderfully pleasing that in this world of digital technology, Tiffen optical filters are recognized as a staple for professional imagemakers across the globe.”
