Hauppauge, New York

The TiffenR Company, a leading manufacturer of award-winning accessories for the still imaging, motion picture, and broadcast markets, is proud to announce its support for the upcoming Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences' Scientific and Technical Awards in conjunction with the OscarsR.

Tiffen's SteadicamR SmootheeR product will be given as the exclusive gift for the awards ceremony attendees. Leveraging the same technology as the $60,000 Hollywood rig systems, Smoothee lets users shoot crisp, smooth, and never shaky footage straight from their iPhoneR or GoProR camera. Tiffen is providing 450 Smoothee Bonus Packs containing the Steadicam Smoothee with mounts for the iPhone 4/4S and GoPro HEROR/HERO2/HERO3.

We are very honored to be able to contribute to the Academy's celebration of the Sci-Tech awards, where industry visionaries come together to celebrate outstanding technological achievements, comments Steve Tiffen, president and CEO, The Tiffen Company. Helping to create the world's greatest images is at the heart of everything the Tiffen Company does and, with Tiffen being a past recipient of Academy recognition, having the Smoothee represented at the Scientific and Technical Awards is something the entire Tiffen family is very proud of.

The awards ceremony will be held on Saturday, February 9, 2013 at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Beverly Hills, California. Portions of the awards presentation will be featured during the Oscar telecast on Sunday, February 24, at the Dolby TheatreTM at Hollywood & Highland CenterR, and will be hosted by Seth MacFarlane.
