Dolby Laboratories Appoints Doug Darrow as Head of Cinema

Seasoned entertainment and technology leader brings broad experience in growing new businesses and delivering world-class innovations
Dolby Laboratories, Inc. today announced that Doug Darrow has joined the company as Senior Vice President of Dolby's cinema business. He will develop and execute strategies that build on Dolby's leadership position in cinema technologies while delivering innovation and added value to customers. Darrow will be based in San Francisco and will report to Ramzi Haidamus, Executive Vice President, Sales and Marketing.

Darrow is a respected industry leader with a proven record for developing and commercializing technologies that revolutionize entertainment. He was most recently president and CEO of Laser Light Engines, a start-up company developing revolutionary solid-state red-green-blue (RGB) laser-illumination systems for high-brightness projectors.

"Doug is a strong leader with a distinguished track record, and his broad experience makes him uniquely suited to realize the full potential of Dolby's cinema business," said Haidamus. "His vision supported the growth and adoption of digital cinema, one of the industry's most important and successful transitions. His marketing expertise, creativity, and reputation for driving winning strategies make Doug the clear choice for this role. Most importantly, he shares our passion and a deep commitment to improving the movie experience, for our customers and for cinema lovers worldwide."

Prior to joining Laser Light Engines, Darrow spent 24 years with Texas Instruments, serving most recently as general manager of its DLP Cinema(R) products business, where he oversaw the development and marketing of DLP Cinema technology. Darrow played a key role in the industry's transition to digital presentation and distribution by enabling the wide-scale deployment of digital cinema projectors and 3D digital cinema presentation, including the first digital cinema release of Star Wars: Episode I--The Phantom Menace.

"I have always had tremendous admiration for Dolby and its ability to move the industry forward," said Darrow. "There's never been a more exciting time for the cinema business, and I embrace this unique opportunity to lead the next phase of the company's evolution. Dolby has an incredible market position, a strong brand, talented employees, and amazing technologies. I am honored and excited to apply my background to help Dolby strengthen its position as one of the world's preeminent cinema technology companies."

Born and raised in the Chicago area, Darrow is a graduate of the University of Rochester and received an MBA degree from the University of Dallas.
