Dolby announces development of digital cinema presentation system

Dolby Laboratories has announced the development of a dedicated digital cinema presentation system.
The system, presented to the motion picture industry at ShoWest 2004 in Las Vegas on March 22, is being developed as a practical and flexible equipment package designed to deliver the best possible cinema experience.
Building on Dolby’s unique experience as a pioneer in entertainment technologies and as the leading supplier of cinema audio equipment, the new solution will offer key advances in reliability, flexibility of operation, adaptability for the future, and system security. The digital cinema presentation system includes both image and sound components, and incorporates the open standards specified by Digital Cinema Initiatives (DCI).
“We’re working hard to develop the digital cinema solution that serves the exhibition and production communities equally well,” said Tim Partridge, Senior Vice President and General Manager at Dolby’s Professional Division. “We believe that only by designing a system from the ground up specifically for digital cinema can you deliver the quality, flexibility, and security that will ensure the best possible cinema presentations, now and in the future. We’re dedicated to the proposition that the cinema environment should always be the best place to experience the director’s vision.”
In creating the new system, Dolby has drawn on vast experience with production and exhibition, processing systems and cinema equipment design, and acquisitions of leading imaging and security companies. The digital cinema presentation system will be manufactured and serviced by Dolby on a worldwide basis.
