Ray Dolby, an audio inventor whose commitment to advancing the quality of sound vastly improved the worlds of musicians, audio engineers, and music, film and broadcast audiences everywhere, passed away today at the age of 80. Without a doubt, Dolby lived and breathed his true passion, audio: He founded Dolby Laboratories in 1965, and his pioneering developments in surround-sound and noise-reduction technologies led to more than 50 patents and earned numerous awards, including many Emmys, a Grammy, and two Oscars.
 
"Though he was an engineer at heart, my father's achievements in technology grew out of a love of music and the arts," said Tom Dolby, son, filmmaker and novelist. "He brought his appreciation of the artistic process to all of his work in film and audio recording."
 
 Take a moment to learn more about Ray, his passions and his innovations in this tribute video from Dolby Laboratories.
