Widely adopted by leading television and film post-production professionals since its introduction in 2022, Clarity Vx Pro is a revolutionary noise-reduction plugin that uses the cutting-edge and powerful Neural Networks® engine developed by Waves, to separate dialogue from ambience at the highest quality without artifacts and in real time, which sets a new standard in post-production.

In accepting the award and addressing the crowd at the ceremony on Wednesday, October 18, 2023, Waves’ Shai Fishman stated, “Waves would like to thank the Academy for this award and the post-production industry for believing in Clarity Vx Pro. Waves is not just a company; it runs like a family – with camaraderie and dedication to pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in audio, and it makes it an exceptional place to work. My deepest gratitude goes to the founders of Waves, Meir Shaashua and Gilad Keren! Their unwavering commitment to innovation, for the past three decades, is truly inspiring. I’ve been using Waves plugins from the late 90’s as a producer, mixer, and mastering engineer – but today, as a product manager, I’m standing on the shoulders of giants, moved by their genius and never-ending passion for creation.” He went on to thank several members of the team and concluded by saying, “Waves will continue to strive for innovation, and we’ll keep making products that improve people’s lives. We’re obliged to each and every one who contributed to Clarity Vx! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!”
