SPI Cinemas to Power 37 Screens in India with Dolby Atmos

Dolby Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE: DLB) and SPI Cinemas, a leading motion picture exhibitor in India, announced today that SPI Cinemas will install Dolby® Atmos™ in 37 screens across its leading theatres in Chennai and Coimbatore. Dolby Atmos has quickly become the preferred choice for next-generation cinema sound among major studios, directors, sound teams, and exhibitors around the world.
 
“SPI Cinemas has always been at the forefront of cinema technology and consequently was the first exhibitor in India to introduce Dolby Atmos at our flagship locations Sathyam and Escape. In my opinion, Dolby Atmos is the only truly revolutionary cinema sound technology that has been developed in the past 20 years. The audience response to the first two Dolby Atmos screens has been very positive. You feel as if the story is unfolding around you, not just on the movie screen. Dolby Atmos allows us to present stories with an incredible audio experience that brings movies to life,” said Mr. Kiran Reddy, CEO, SPI Cinemas.
 
“Dolby and SPI Cinemas share a common vision of constant innovation to improve the cinematic experience. We are proud of what we’ve been able to achieve with Dolby Atmos,” said Mr. Pankaj Kedia, Country Manager, Dolby Laboratories, India. “Dolby Atmos is a major shift from traditional channel based surround sound. It provides a natural and lifelike audio experience in the theatre. It’s a game changer.”
 
About Dolby Atmos
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 moviegoers have described as the most engaging and immersive cinema sound experience ever.
 
Introduced in April 2012, Dolby Atmos has been embraced by major studios, award-winning directors and sound teams, and leading exhibitors worldwide. More than 40 films around the world have been released or are scheduled to be released with Dolby Atmos sound since the first film was released in June 2012. In 2013, the Cinema Audio Society gave Dolby Atmos its coveted Technical Achievement Award for Post Production.
