Dolby: The Best of Sight and Sound at CinemaCon 2014

CinemaCon highlights: Dolby Atmos surpasses 100-title milestone; laser projection features Dolby 3D
Dolby Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE:DLB) returns to CinemaCon® 2014 (Caesars Palace, Milano Ballroom III) this week to highlight the best in cinema audio and imaging. On the audio side, the company will be highlighting Dolby Atmos, which will soon be featured in more than 600 screens worldwide, in part by new installations planned with Indonesia’s Lippo Group (Cinemaxx). On the imaging side, Barco and Christie Digital Systems will be showcasing their latest laser projection capabilities with Dolby® 3D for brighter, crisper 3D images.

Dolby 3D: The Clear Choice for Laser 3D
Because it uses advanced color separation technology, Dolby 3D is ideally suited for next-generation laser projectors, which can produce brighter, higher-contrast images than can traditional projectors. Dolby 3D preserves nearly 90 percent of the light that reaches the viewer from the 6-primary (6P) laser projector to deliver a bright, clear image. Both Barco and Christie will be demonstrating laser projection at CinemaCon using Dolby 3D technology.

New Dolby Atmos Screen Commitments
Dolby and Lippo Group recently announced that Cinemaxx, a new exhibitor under Indonesia’s Lippo Group, has committed to installing Dolby Atmos® in 100 cinema screens over the next three or more years, with 30 of the 100 screens scheduled to be launched by the end of May 2015.

Dolby Atmos Surpasses 100-Title Milestone
Highlighting Dolby Atmos momentum, the company revealed today that 11 new titles are scheduled to be mixed and released in Dolby Atmos, increasing the number of announced titles to more than 100 titles since its launch. New Dolby Atmos titles are currently scheduled from major studios including DreamWorks Animation, Twentieth Century Fox, Lionsgate, Disney and Marvel, and Paramount Pictures, with Warner Bros. also planning for the release of The Hobbit: There and Back Again and Edge of Tomorrow.
