Dolby and Paramount Pictures Embark on New Frontiers for J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek into Darkness

Bad Robot Productions will create immersive Dolby Atmos sound mix and integrate Dolby Professional Reference Monitor into workflow
Dolby Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE: DLB) and Paramount Pictures, a division of Viacom Inc., today announced at ShowEast 2012 that J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot production of Star Trek into Darkness will use the latest technical achievements in cinematic storytelling to deliver a new experience to audiences. Star Trek into Darkness is scheduled to be released by Paramount Pictures on May 17, 2013.

Star Trek into Darkness will be released in Dolby® Atmos™ to deliver a more natural and realistic soundtrack that moves sound around and above audiences, transporting them into the outer regions of the universe. The Bad Robot Productions team will also integrate the Dolby Professional Reference Monitor PRM-4200 into its pre- and postproduction workflows.

“We are in the incredible and lucky position to have access to the latest technology, the best possible tools, and the most talented artists in the business,” said Abrams, the producer and director of Star Trek into Darkness. “We are therefore thrilled to announce that we will be employing the amazingly immersive Dolby Atmos audio system to bring the Star Trek into Darkness soundtrack to life.”

Academy Award® winner Andy Nelson and multiple Academy Award nominee Anna Behlmer are the re-recording mixers at the helm of the Dolby Atmos mix; Academy Award winner Ben Burtt and multiple Academy Award nominee Matt Wood are the supervising sound editors. Dolby Atmos is a new audio platform that revolutionizes the experience of sound in entertainment. It allows sound designers and mixers a new level of creative control and ensures that audiences will experience the full impact of the sound mix, regardless of theatre configuration. Said Mark Christiansen, Executive Vice President, Worldwide Operations, Paramount Pictures, “Dolby Atmos brings a new sonic dimension to the amazing visuals Star Trek into Darkness will deliver audiences.”

The list of theatres selected to show Star Trek into Darkness in Dolby Atmos will be made available closer to the release date.

The Dolby PRM-4200 has been at the center of the visual effects (VFX) production, having been used for color-critical VFX reviews and previsualization work. VFX producer Ron Ames reports, “The Dolby monitor allows us to see more color-accurate and higher-quality images than ever before right in our workspace. We’ve been able to dramatically streamline our shot-review process, as we have confidence that the images we’re seeing on the Dolby monitor will precisely match what we see on the big screen.” The Dolby Professional Reference Monitor also ensures that all the incredible detail and rich colors captured by cinematographer Daniel Mindel are accurately represented onscreen.

“J.J. Abrams embraces new innovations and technologies that improve storytelling. Dolby is helping the cinema industry to deliver on this vision as it has done for over four decades,” said Doug Darrow, Senior Vice President, Cinema, Dolby Laboratories. “We are excited to have J.J. Abrams use these new technologies to deliver the best picture and sound to the big screen.”

Star Trek into Darkness is written by Damon Lindelof, Alex Kurtzman, and Roberto Orci. It is directed by J.J. Abrams. Abrams will also produce the feature with Bryan Burk through Bad Robot Productions, along with Lindelof, Kurtzman, and Orci.

About Dolby Atmos
Dolby Atmos brings a powerful new listening experience to the cinema with more natural, realistic sound that truly envelops the audience.

The backlight is an array of red, green, and blue LEDs that are modulated individually on a frame-by-frame basis to provide full accuracy of blacks, color, and grayscale. The LCD panel is also modulated in real time as part of the dual-modulation process. It is the first monitor to accurately display the full latitude of today’s high-end digital cameras.
