CinemaCon 2013, Las Vegas,—Apr 15, 2013

Dolby Defines the Future of Entertainment at CinemaCon 2013

Available now: Dolby Atmos Cinema Processor CP850 and Sony 4K projectors featuring Dolby 3D CinemaCon highlight: The Colosseum gets a Dolby Atmos upgrade
Dolby Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE:DLB) ushers in a new era of entertainment at CinemaCon® 2013 (Caesars Palace, booth 2303A) with the general availability of the Dolby® Atmos™ Cinema Processor CP850 and the ability to bring Dolby 3D imaging to Sony® 4K projectors. In addition, Dolby has temporarily equipped the prestigious Colosseum theatre at Caesars Palace with Dolby Atmos to support presentations by several studios.
 
“Since it was introduced at CinemaCon 2012, we believe that Dolby Atmos has become the preferred choice for next-generation sound in the cinema with major studios, directors, sound teams, and exhibitors around the world embracing its innovative approach to sound,” said Doug Darrow, Senior Vice President, Cinema, Dolby Laboratories. “In addition, Dolby Digital Cinema continues to evolve, as offerings like the Dolby Atmos Cinema Processor CP850 and Dolby 3D capabilities for Sony 4K projection deliver what we believe to be best-in-class solutions to help filmmakers ignite the senses of sight and sound.”
 
Dolby Atmos unleashes the potential of sound in storytelling by giving sound experts the creative freedom to easily place or move specific sounds anywhere in the movie theatre, not just where there happen to be speakers. The result is what some moviegoers have described as the most engaging and immersive cinema sound experience ever. Within one year of launch, and just 10 months since the first Dolby Atmos release, nearly 40 films around the world have been announced or released with Dolby Atmos sound. With more than 100 screens enabled and more than 20 global postproduction facilities capable of Dolby Atmos mixing, Dolby Atmos is becoming one of the fastest adopted multichannel formats in cinema. 
 
Dolby Atmos Cinema Processor CP850
The new CP850 offers a complete audio solution to today’s digital cinema theatres and brings a natural, realistic, and immersive sound experience to audiences with Dolby Atmos. Using specific speaker location and performance attributes, the CP850 renders in real time a custom mix for that room that accurately replicates the audio experience intended by the sound mixer. The CP850 also supports Dolby Atmos playback of up to 64 speaker feeds, configurable between 16 analog outputs and a Dolby Atmos Connect output. The CP850 supports Dolby Surround 7.1 and 5.1 digital playback as well as common Dolby formats used with alternative content in cinemas: Dolby Digital Plus™, Dolby E, and Dolby’s latest up-mixing technology. To ensure proper setup and playback, each CP850 also includes the Dolby Atmos Commissioning Service.

Over the past year, Dolby sound engineers have worked closely with exhibitors, installers, studios, and mixers to ensure all installations meet consistent, high performance standards. The CP850 works seamlessly with the Dolby Screen Server DSS200, the Dolby Integrated Media Block (IMB)/Dolby Screen Server DSS220, or with digital cinema servers from other companies in conjunction with a future software update. All major server manufacturers have been given access to Dolby’s technical specifications and a detailed reference design for integrating Dolby Atmos support into their products.
 
The Dolby Atmos Commissioning Service is included with purchase of the CP850. The service provides a review of a cinema’s sound-system design to ensure that the speakers and amplifiers have the necessary performance and room coverage to deliver a high-quality Dolby Atmos experience. It also includes initial room equalization after the equipment is installed.
 
Dolby Atmos Digital Cinema Packaging Specifications Now Available
The specifications for mastering a Digital Cinema Package (DCP) containing a Dolby Atmos soundtrack are now available. These specifications outline how the encoded Dolby Atmos mix is stored as a data track within a Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE)–packaged DCP, how it is synchronized during playback, and how to generate security keys (key delivery messages, or KDMs) to enable playback of the content. Dolby has provided detailed specifications and a reference design to major DCP mastering and packaging vendors so they can integrate Dolby Atmos into their mastering products.  
 
The Dolby Secure Content Creator SCC2000 has been updated to support the creation of DCPs containing a Dolby Atmos soundtrack, and the v4.2 software update (which adds support for Dolby Atmos) is available for existing SCC2000 customers. Several movies mixed in Dolby Atmos have already been distributed to Dolby Atmos–equipped theatres through a SMPTE DCP. With the release of the CP850, all Dolby Atmos soundtracks will be distributed through a SMPTE DCP.
