Dolby Laboratories to showcase digital cinema products at Cinema Expo 2005

Dolby Laboratories has announced that at Cinema Expo (June27–30 in Amsterdam) it will demonstrate the full Dolby Digital Cinema presentation system and its new digital cinema trailer, 'Countdown'.
Dolby will also celebrate its fortieth anniversary at the show in booth 161. Displays will provide an overview of the company’s four decades of entertainment innovations, demonstrate one of its latest technologies, Dolby ScreenTalk, and display its core lines of reliable, flexible, and innovative cinema products.
While the digital cinema market continues to evolve, Dolby is leveraging its respected entertainment, research, and engineering heritage to provide compelling digital cinema solutions. The Dolby Digital Cinema system to be demonstrated at this year’s expo has already powered more than 2000 shows at sites across the world. It has also been chosen by studios for high-profile screenings including 'Star Wars Episode III: The Revenge of the Sith' and 'Sin City', as well as being used at international film festivals such as Cannes and Telluride.
“Our products and technologies are designed to serve studios and exhibitors alike and lead them into the digital future,” said Jason Power, Market Development Manager, Dolby Laboratories. “Dolby is celebrating 40 years of technological advancements at the show, highlighting innovative products that continue to solve problems, but are still flexible and reliable, and are designed and built specifically for today’s cinemas.”
The company will be demonstrating Dolby ScreenTalk, a cinema subtitling and audio enhancing system that provides full-colour digital subtitles via a video projector or an alternative subtitling device over any standard 35 mm film with a Dolby Digital soundtrack. The system also provides audio commentary for the visually impaired, using the cinema’s wireless headphone system.
Over 100 Dolby ScreenTalk systems have been sold across Europe and positive feedback has been received from trials held in France, Germany, and Switzerland. More than 200 films are now available with Dolby ScreenTalk audio description and subtitling.
