Dolby Unveils Suite of New Offerings at CinemaCon 2012

Dolby Atmos and DSS220 with IMB, high frame rate, and 4K capabilities redefine entertainment experience
Dolby Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE: DLB) will showcase an array of new digital cinema offerings at CinemaCon® 2012 (Caesars Palace, booth 2311). For the first time, Dolby will demonstrate the new Dolby® Atmos platform as well as high frame rate (HFR), 4K, and 3D visual capabilities at the Brenden Theatres in the Palms Hotel.

“Dolby takes a holistic approach to its digital cinema product development to ensure that all products work well together to provide the best entertainment experience possible,” said Doug Darrow, Senior Vice President, Cinema, Dolby Laboratories. “From delivering content creators the tools they need to bring a story to life, to outfitting exhibitors with a powerful suite of products that deliver the artist’s intent, Dolby is committed to advancing the digital cinema evolution. With the introduction of Dolby Atmos, our forward-thinking approach to 3D, and 4K solutions, Dolby continues to deliver the premium experience that customers have come to expect from us.”

Ushering in a New Era of Sound Technology
Announced Monday, April 23, at CinemaCon 2012, the Dolby Atmos platform expands the creative possibilities for content creators, allowing them to use audio to dramatically enhance the visuals onscreen to help draw audiences into the story. Dolby Atmos uses the tools that sound designers and mixers currently favor, ensuring that they can efficiently create truly compelling content.

A key feature of Dolby Atmos is the ability to capture, distribute, and faithfully render audio in a way that is not limited by channels or fixed speaker locations. Due to this inherent scalability and adaptability, exhibitors can build theatres with customized speaker configurations that optimize performance based on room size and shape. This approach improves the listening experience for audiences, regardless of the theatre design.

Scheduled public demonstrations of Dolby Atmos will include round-trip transportation between Caesars Palace and the Brenden Theatres. Visit the Dolby booth for demo times and transportation information.

In addition, experience the new Dolby Atmos format in live content-creation demonstrations in the Dolby booth. Tradeshow demos will include special guest appearances today, Tuesday, April 24, at 2:30 p.m. PDT, by award-winning Hong Kong sound designer Kinson Tsang; and tomorrow, Wednesday, April 25, at 1:00 p.m. PDT, by Academy Award®–nominated supervising sound editor Erik Aadahl.

Pushing Digital Cinema to the Limits:
 
Dolby Integrated Media Block and DSS220 Screen Server
The latest addition to the Dolby Digital Cinema family of products, the Dolby Integrated Media Block (IMB) offers exhibitors a platform for the future. With fully built-in support for HFR 3D (both 48 and 60 frames per second) and 2K and 4K playback, all at a single price, the IMB combines compatibility, lasting value, and cost-effectiveness.

The smallest and lightest screen server on the market, the DSS220 takes only 2U of vertical rack space, easing space constraints and simplifying installation. Rather than combining the server and media block functionality in one chassis as in the DSS200 Screen Server, the IMB is installed directly in the cinema projector.

Scheduled public demos of Dolby’s HFR and 4K playback capabilities will also be conducted at the Brenden Theatres in the Palms Hotel. Visit the Dolby booth for demo times and transportation information.

Dolby Screen Server (DSS200)
A DCI-compliant software update is now available for the DSS200 Screen Server. The software update, version 4.4.0, allows existing owners to upgrade their servers to be compliant with DCI Cinema Systems Specification, version 1.2, with no additional hardware required to meet DCI compliance. Version 4.4.0 features the user-friendly Dolby user interface, offering quality and functionality to customers.

Dolby Cinema Processor (CP750)
The Dolby CP750, the flagship cinema audio processor, will also be on display in the Dolby booth. The Dolby CP750 makes the upgrade from 5.1- to 7.1-channel surround sound easy and economical. Designed to work with the new digital cinema environment, the Dolby CP750 seamlessly integrates with preshow servers, alternative content, and digital cinema servers. With an easy-to-use interface and powerful setup/remote software, the CP750 can play back analog audio, PCM digital audio, Dolby Digital, Dolby Pro Logic, Dolby Pro Logic II, Dolby Digital Surround EX™, and Dolby Surround 7.1.

Dolby Milestones in Digital Cinema and 3D
More than 3,600 global installations of Dolby Surround 7.1 have been conducted since the technology launched in June 2010. Dolby Surround 7.1 has been used by major studios around the world, with more than 60 features released or set to be released in this format.

With more than 13,300 Dolby Screen Servers shipped since April 2005, Dolby has been instrumental in driving the convergence of digital cinema around the world.

In addition, Dolby continues to see global traction in 3D, shipping more than 9,800 Dolby 3D Digital Cinema systems since November 2007. Dolby 3D delivers an efficient and flexible solution designed to provide audiences with an immersive 3D experience.
