NoHo Arts District, CA—May 3, 2016

Television Academy Names Dolby Official Audio Video Technology Sponsor of its Dynamic State-Of-The-Art Theatre in Soon-To-Be-Unveiled New Saban Media Center

First Non-Commercial Theatre in U.S. To Install Cutting-Edge Dolby Technologies
The Television Academy today announced Dolby Laboratories as the official audio video technology sponsor of the new Television Academy Foundation Theatre at the Saban Media Center, the centerpiece of the organization’s reimagined NoHo Arts district campus.  Dolby will also be recognized as one of the Foundation’s founding sponsors.
Both the Television Academy Foundation Theatre and green room will be equipped with Dolby’s latest, award-winning audio and imaging solutions, Dolby Atmos® and Dolby VisionTM. This partnership announcement of the Academy’s New Destination Campaign positions the Television Academy Foundation Theatre as one of the most technologically advanced theatres in the world.
Additionally, the Dolby collaboration ensures the Academy’s new theatre will be regularly updated with cutting-edge Dolby technology for the next 10 years, guaranteeing it remains a leader in audio and visual technology and continuously delivers and showcases the optimum entertainment experience.
“Our partnership with Dolby positions our new theatre and Media Center as a showplace of evolving entertainment technology and we are thrilled to have them on board as one of the founding partners,” said Television Academy Chairman and CEO Bruce Rosenblum. “Dolby is bringing the Academy the most advanced audio and imaging resources available.  Their extraordinary innovations are empowering new generations of story tellers, and are shaping and enhancing the way we experience great content.”
“As leaders in delivering unparalleled audio and video technologies to the industry, it was a natural fit to partner with the Television Academy to advance the science of sight and sound in their remarkable new Saban Media Center,” said Kevin Yeaman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Dolby Laboratories.  “We are honored to provide the Academy with technology that’s allowing content creators to bring unparalleled, high-quality entertainment experiences to consumers.”
The theatre will feature the latest Dolby Vision laser projection system, utilizing unique optics and image processing.  The system creates a high dynamic range with enhanced color technology and a contrast ratio that produces bright, crisp images superior to any other image technology on the market today. The result is a richer, more detailed viewing experience of strikingly vivid and realistic images. Combined with Dolby® 3D and laser projection, these technologies will produce an unforgettable, immersive experience for guests of the Television Academy Foundation Theatre.
The 600 seat theatre will also be equipped with a Dolby Atmos system including speakers from Meyer and JBL. Dolby Atmos moves audio around the theater, even overhead, creating a powerfully all-encompassing, emotive soundscape with amazing richness and depth. 
The Academy’s contemporary, new green room will serve as a high-tech retreat for performers, talent, panelists, executives and celebrities at Television Academy events, and features a Dolby Atmos system with a 9.1.4 speaker arrangement. The technology will also include Martin Logan speakers, a Marantz AV8802A Dolby Atmos processor, a Niles Audio SI-1650 for power amplification and the LG 65” OLED model featuring Dolby Vision technology.
The 30,000 square foot LEED-certified Saban Media Center – the new focal point of the Television Academy campus in the NoHo Arts District and the centerpiece of the Academy’s New Destination Campaign launched just two years ago – will serve to support and provide continuing education for the Academy’s 21,000 members.  In addition, it will offer fully-modernized spaces for industry visionaries and leaders in related fields and provide an ideal environment for exchanging ideas, pioneering innovations and honoring professional skills.  Flexible spaces and the most advanced digital technologies will be available for professional development activities and recognition ceremonies, as well as a television lab where students can learn from the experts.
