Dolby Digital Cinema Debuts in Japan with the Release of Star Wars: Episode III—Revenge of the Sith

Dolby Laboratories (NYSE: DLB) announced today the commercial launch of Dolby® Digital Cinema in Japan with the release of Star Wars: Episode III—Revenge of the Sith. Installed in numerous Japanese commercial cinemas, Dolby Digital Cinema was utilized for the movie’s first industry screening in Japan on June 18 and will be used for the official premiere on July 2, which director George Lucas and the cast will attend.

Building on the successful launch of Dolby Digital Cinema with the release of Revenge of the Sith in the United States and throughout Europe, Dolby continues to deploy its digital cinema solution in theatres worldwide. For the movie’s scheduled debut in Japan, Dolby has installed six Dolby Digital Cinema units in top cinemas.

“The release of Star Wars: Episode III—Revenge of the Sith has created a new awareness for digital cinema and the incredible experience it brings to moviegoers throughout the world,” said Tim Partridge, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Professional Division, Dolby Laboratories. “We’ve seen an increase in interest for our solution by exhibitors and consumers alike, and we are thrilled that Lucasfilm Ltd. selected Dolby Digital Cinema for all their major screenings and world premieres of Star Wars.”

Since the movie’s US debut, Dolby engineers have traveled with Lucasfilm throughout the world installing Dolby Digital Cinema for key screenings and offering their ongoing support and services. As a result, Dolby Digital Cinema has provided high-quality digital cinema experiences for the latest episode of the Star Wars saga. Dolby Laboratories anticipates continued interest for installing Dolby Digital Cinema in theatres throughout the world for future releases mastered for digital cinema.

Dolby Digital Cinema provides all the elements for digital movie playback and show management: storing, decrypting, decoding, scheduling, and interfacing to existing cinema systems, while delivering the quality, reliability, security, and flexibility necessary for digital cinema. The system has been built to industry standards as specified by the Digital Cinema Initiative (DCI), a joint venture of the major studios formed to establish industry specifications for digital cinema solutions.
