Dolby Sees a New Vision of Image Accuracy

Dolby PRM-4200 Professional Reference Monitor Reproduces the Exact Captured Image for Production and Postproduction Needs
Dolby Laboratories, Inc. announced today that for professionals who rely on the most accurate measurement tools for color-critical work, the new Dolby(R) PRM-4200 Professional Reference Monitor delivers the accuracy of previous CRT (cathode ray tube) monitors with the versatility of flat-panel displays.

The new 42-inch monitor is the world's first LCD-based video reference display that accurately reveals true and deep black levels with higher contrast across the entire color spectrum, and provides an unprecedented luminance range and level. It uses a backlight comprised of red, green, and blue LEDs that are modulated individually on a frame-by-frame basis. The LCD panel is also modulated in real time as part of the dual-modulation process.

"From broadcast audio to digital cinema, Dolby looks at the critical points in the entertainment chain that will ultimately deliver a compelling entertainment experience for the audience," said Jason Power, Senior Director of Marketing, Broadcast, Dolby Laboratories. "In creating our new professional reference monitor, we took a really close look at the video side of content creation and leveraged our expertise in imaging and manufacturing to produce a true next-generation reference display."

Other key features of the Dolby PRM-4200 Professional Reference Monitor include:

-- Extended dynamic range--the first reference monitor that is capable of displaying the dynamic range that the latest digital cinema cameras can capture
-- DCI/P3 (digital cinema) color gamut support--provides the ability to perform cinema color grading without the use of a digital projector
-- Color accuracy across all luminance levels
-- Versatility--emulates any other display device so all content preparation and quality evaluation can be done on one monitor
-- Size and aspect ratio--emulates the home viewing environment to ensure that content displays properly in the home

The new Dolby Professional Reference Monitor is scheduled to be available later this year.
