Highly Anticipated Film Bodyguard Released in Dolby Surround 7.1

Dolby Laboratories, Inc., (NYSE: DLB) today announced that the highly anticipated film Bodyguard, starring Salman Khan, will be released in Dolby® Surround 7.1 on August 31, 2011, in select cinemas across India.
 
“Sound is integral to experiencing Bodyguard,” said Jitendra Chaudhary, sound designer for Bodyguard. “Dolby Surround 7.1 gave us greater control over the definition and placement of sounds to achieve the exact vision we dreamed of.”
 
Bodyguard is directed by Siddique and produced by Atul Agnihotri, Alvira Agnihotri, and Nikhil Namit. The film stars Salman Khan, Raj Babbar, and Kareena Kapoor, and it features music by Himesh Reshammiya and Pritam Chakraborty.
 
Bodyguard is the second Bollywood film to be released in Dolby Surround 7.1, following Ramesh Sippy Entertainment’s Dum Maaro Dum a few months ago.
 
“Dolby Surround 7.1 enables filmmakers to completely immerse audiences in the movie,” said Pankaj Kedia, Country Manager, India, Dolby Laboratories. “We are committed to the Indian film community and are thrilled to collaborate on Bodyguard.”
 
About Dolby Surround 7.1
The latest innovation from a pioneer in cinema sound, Dolby Surround 7.1 improves the spatial dimension of soundtracks and enhances audio definition. The result is full-featured audio that better matches the visual impact of movies.

Enabling content creators to mix in a discrete 7.1 format, Dolby Surround 7.1 provides four surround zones to better orchestrate audio channels in a movie theater environment. The four surround zones incorporate the traditional Left Surround and Right Surround with new Back Surround Left and Back Surround Right zones. The addition of the two Back Surround zones enhances directionality in panning 360 degrees around the theater.

The Dolby Surround 7.1 format comprises eight channels of audio and has the following channel layout: Left, Center, Right, Low-Frequency Effects (LFE), Left Surround, Right Surround, Back Surround Left, and Back Surround Right.

Since its launch in June 2010, there have been more than 2,100 times global installations of Dolby Surround 7.1. For more information on Dolby Surround 7.1, visit www.dolby.com/dolbysurround7-1. A video about Dolby Surround 7.1 is available at http://bit.ly/DolbySurround7-1.
