Sykes, Adrian F.

SUBJECT AREA: Broadcasting, Recording
[br]
fl. 1920s Britain
[br]
English engineer who developed several early mechanical and electromechanical recording systems.
[br]
The BBC used the Round-Sykes microphone.
In 1928 Sykes collaborated with W.D.Sternberg of British Homophone to exploit his patents on recording systems.
Sykes's contribution to sound recording lies in the thorough analysis of the basic phenomena in the mechanical side of recording. These analyses are expressed by his many patent applications which merged into complete specifications. His basic patent on electromechanical recording caused a fair amount of litigation in Germany.
