Former OSU EE Professor and OSU EE Alum Professor Marv White Wins Emmy AwardFeb 25, 2022
The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) (https://theemmys.tv/tech-73rd-award-recipients) announced that Marvin H. White is one of the recipients of the 73rd Annual Technology & Engineering Emmy® Awards. Professor White’s Emmy was awarded for “Correlated Double Sampling for Image Sensors”, a project on video camera technology he worked on at Westinghouse, now a part of Northrop Grumman Mission Systems Group.
The 73rd Annual Award ceremony will held in Las Vegas, NV on April, 25th. The award statuette, a winged woman holding an atom with spinning electrons, is often associated with the Oscars, but Marv’s Emmy is for contributions to television camera technology. Marv White was on the EE/ECE Alumni Society Board of Governors for many years and earned his PhD from Ohio State. Marv says, “Historically, TV began with Image Orthicons and Vidicons to capture scenes at low-light levels, but were later replaced by light-weight, high-resolution, solid-state imagers. In the late 1960’s and early 1970’s at Westinghouse, I and a team of engineers worked on a way to process images from these solid-state imagers and we called the method Correlated Double Sampling or CDS, which is widely used today.” Read more https://ece.osu.edu/news/2022/02/ece-professor-marvin-white-wins-emmy-award-historic-engineering-achievements
