Inventor of the Sodium Vapor Compositor and the Blue Screen Color Difference Traveling Matte & Multiple Oscar recipient

Since receiving his engineering degree from the University of California at Berkeley in 1941, Vlahos has served the motion picture industry as a design engineer, field engineer, systems engineer and as the Chief Scientist for the Association of Motion Picture and Television Producers’ Research Center.

Considered to be one of the leading scientific and technical innovators in the motion picture and television industries, Vlahos consistently devised solutions for problems that had resisted years of well-funded and concerted effort by his predecessors and peers.

Vlahos has more than 35 wide-ranging patents for camera crane motor controls, screen brightness meters, safe squib systems, cabling designs and junction boxes, projection screens, optical sound tracks and even sonar. He also created analog and digital hardware and software versions of Ultimatte, the first high quality electronic compositing system. [watch]
