Edward C. Fox graduated from MIT in 1957, receiving a BSEE and an MSEE degree simultaneously in the Co-Op program. His Master's thesis covered both theoretical and experimental work on an optical phonograph pickup for monaural audio disc records. The experimental work was done for Philco Corp. during one of the Co-Op program work periods. During other Co-Op assignments, he was involved in transistor circuit design and other studies connected with the Sidewinder missile. Mr. Fox joined RCA Laboratories, Princeton, NJ, as a research trainee in 1957 and, later in the same year, was appointed a Member of the Technical Staff. Since then, he has been active in automation, high-frequency magnetic measurements, video tape recording, stereo-disc recording, TV signal processing, holography, optical- and CED-disc recording, and television receiver circuitry. Most recently he has been working on the design of the RCA TR800 broadcast video tape recorder.
Mr. Fox holds six U.S. patents. He received two RCA Laboratories Outstanding Achievement Awards, one in 1963 for the system used to electronically cancel tracing distortion on the RCA Dynagroove stereo discs, and one in 1981 for his contributions to the design of the TR800 VTR. He has presented four conference papers, one of which, titled "An Electronic Delay Modulator," received the IEEE Audio and Electroacoustics Group Best Paper Award in 1965.
Mr. Fox is a member of the IEEE and a Fellow of the Audio Engineering Society.
