Before that, studios were forced to rely on heavy optical recorders (Ryder hauled his around in an 11-ton truck). Ryder's system, which today involves recorders weighing ounces rather than tons, was first used in the film "Geronimo" and later on Rudy Vallee's television programs…. The offshoot of those experiments was an industrywide conversion to magnetic tape and Ryder's founding of his own firm in 1948, although he stayed with Paramount until 1957.""Loren L.

Four years later, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences presented Mr. Ryder with a special award for the development and application of the supersonic playback and public-address system…The first studiowide application of magnetic sound recording for motion-picture production earned Mr. Ryder and Paramount Studios an Oscar in 1950.
