Dolby Congratulate Oscar Nominees

One company has been quick to congratulate a number of films nominated for an Academy Awards as their technologies were heavily featured in their production.
Dolby Laboratories, announced that all Oscar-nominated films in the Achievement in Sound Editing and Achievement in Sound Mixing categories were released with Dolby audio technologies.
In addition, the Dolby Professional Video Reference Monitor was used in a number of Oscar-nominated films in the Achievement in Cinematography category.
"From everyone at Dolby, we want to congratulate the nominees and thank them for trusting Dolby technologies in their award-nominated work," said Doug Darrow, Senior Vice President, Cinema, Dolby Laboratories.
"We’re excited to continue to provide the leaders of the audio and imaging world with the services and technologies they need to produce such amazing movies."
This marks the 34th consecutive year that films released with Dolby audio technologies have earned Academy Award nominations for outstanding sound quality.
Recognised as the de facto standard for high-quality audio in cinema, Dolby’s audio technologies—including Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Surround EX, and Dolby Surround 7.1 formats—have dramatically enhanced the moviegoing experience.
Since the launch of Dolby Surround 7.1 in June 2010, more than 50 feature films have been released or are set to be released in this format, including three of the five films nominated in the category of achievement in sound mixing: Paramount Pictures’ Hugo and Transformers: Dark of the Moon and Touchstone Pictures’ War Horse.
With Dolby Surround 7.1 reaching approximately 3,400 global installations, studios are embracing the latest audio format globally.
Last year, the company launched the Dolby Professional Video Reference Monitor, an extremely consistent, accurate reference monitor for creating any type of color-critical content.
The award-winning Dolby Professional Reference Monitor was used on films nominated for cinematography, including Sony Pictures Releasing’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Touchstone’s War Horse.
