Connecticut Science Center Delivers Educational Content in Dolby 3D

Dolby 3D illustrates science center’s commitment to the environment
Dolby Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE: DLB) today announced that the Connecticut Science Center selected Dolby® 3D and Dolby Digital surround sound for its Maximilian E. and Marion O. Hoffman Foundation 3D Science Theater. In addition, Moving iMage Technologies was a key contributor in conducting the system integration of Dolby solutions for the Hoffman Foundation 3D Science Theater.  The science center opened to the public on June 12, 2009.

“Dolby 3D will be a signature attraction at our theater,” said Greg Kowalewski, Theater Manager, Connecticut Science Center. “We are opening with two exceptional 3D movies: Dinosaurs Alive! and 3D Sun. These movies were chosen to enhance our educational programs and exhibits. By choosing the Dolby 3D system and its reusable glasses, we are also reinforcing our eco-friendly message to our visitors.”

The Connecticut Science Center, located in Hartford, Connecticut, is a non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing science education throughout the state and the New England region. Designed from its inception to be a green facility, the Connecticut Science Center believes it will receive at least a GOLD Level Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. LEED awards are given by the U.S. Green Building Council to projects that show a high level of commitment to sustainability through design and operation.

In alignment with the science center’s green initiative, the Dolby 3D system uses high-performance, eco-friendly passive glasses that require no batteries or charging and can be reused repeatedly, reducing waste associated with a disposable glasses model. The Connecticut Science Center selected the Dolby 3D system not only to support its eco-initiative but to deliver a premium viewing experience to it patrons. Dolby’s 3D solution uses a unique full-spectrum color-filter technology licensed from Infitec that provides realistic color reproduction and an extremely sharp image.

Visitors will not only see spectacular 3D images but will feel the power of the audio with Dolby Digital surround sound that processes precisely 17,600 watts of sonic power delivered from 29 speakers (4 subwoofers, 22 surrounds, and 3 Left/Center/Right cabinets).

“I know patrons are going to be dazzled by the spectacular 3D picture and immersive surround sound that the Dolby system provides. In addition, Dolby 3D fits perfectly into the Connecticut Science Center’s eco-agenda,” said Page Haun, Senior Director of Cinema Marketing, Dolby Laboratories. “Dolby 3D brings the Connecticut Science Center a truly immersive 3D experience adding another layer of storytelling for educational content.”

The Dolby 3D system supports both 2D and 3D digital cinema presentations to give the Connecticut Science Center flexibility in delivering a wide range of content. This works by retracting the full spectrum color filter wheel out of the light path for 2D and into the light path for 3D in the projector. Applying the Dolby 3D filter to the light before the image is formed, delivers stable and sharp images without modulation of the actual image. As a result, there is no degradation to the picture presenting a premium image to every visitor in the 200-seat stadium-seating theater. Dolby 3D is incorporated into an NEC STARUS NC2500S digital projector, featuring Texas Instruments Digital Light ProcessingTM digital cinema technology delivering crystal clear images onto a 30’x40’ screen.
