Dolby, Christie and Necsel Collaboration on Dolby Vision Laser Projector Wins Prism Award 2016 in ‘Displays & Lighting’ Category

Prism Awards international competition honors best new optics and photonics products
Dolby Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE: DLB), Christie®, and Necsel were honored  this week at the 2016 Prism Awards for Photonics Innovation with an award in the Displays & Lighting category for the firms’ collaboration on the Dolby Vision™ laser projection system.
 
The Dolby Vision projection system uses state-of-the-art optics and image processing to deliver high dynamic range with enhanced color technology and a contrast ratio that far exceeds that of any other image technology on the market today. The result is a richer, more detailed viewing experience that delivers strikingly vivid and realistic images and makes viewers feel like they are in the movie's world.
 
”Dolby is extremely honored to be a recipient of the 2016 Prism Award for Displays and Lighting  which is a testament to the science and engineering expertise delivered by the talented teams from Dolby, Christie and Necsel,” said Doug Darrow, Senior Vice President, Cinema Business Group, Dolby Laboratories. “Our mission has always been to advance the science of sight and sound with technology that makes entertainment more engaging. The Dolby Vision laser projection system, an integral part of Dolby Cinema, does just that by enabling filmmakers to bring their stories to life onscreen.”
 
“Christie congratulates our partner Dolby and our laser-device supply partner Necsel on the collaboration between our firms, which led to the design of a superior, unique projection system that leverages customized, high dynamic range (HDR) capable Christie 4K laser projection heads,” said Jennifer Smith, Global Market Solutions Executive Vice President, Christie.
 
“Combined with Christie’s 6P modular laser light sources, this technology delivers the high-contrast images and ultra-brightness that define Dolby Vision – the visual manifestation of Dolby Cinema - a premium cinema offering that combines spectacular image and sound technologies with inspired design to make every visit a completely captivating cinematic event,” said Smith.
 
“We have worked closely with Christie on its laser projection program for many years now and are proud to be a key part of this ground-breaking innovation in cinema projection technology,” said Greg Niven, VP, Sales & Marketing for Necsel.
 
Organized by SPIE and sponsored by Photonics Media, the international awards competition has been recognizing the best new products and solutions in the optics and photonics markets since 2008.
