Coming later this year, Dolby takes its professional Atmos theater sound technology to the home theater market.
Dolby's new surround sound format will work with existing Blu-ray players, but requires new AV receivers and other home audio gear.
Dolby is known for its sound systems, but it's also developed imaging tech that will change how Hollywood can make movies and what you'll be able to see on your TV screen. CNET's Kara Tsuboi reports.
The man responsible for groundbreaking work in noise reduction and inventing surround sound has passed away at age 80.
The immersive audio that makes movie-goers feel like they're inside the film, rather than just watching it, will be available for Dolby partners to incorporate on mobile by the end of the year.
Dolby Atmos is used in the Oscar-nominated films "Gravity" and "The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug." CNET's Kara Tsuboi goes behind the scenes at Dolby Labs with Academy Award-winning sound mixer Christopher Boyes.
The audio company has special algorithms that deliver spatial sound similar to its Atmos technology to your basic headphones.
Higher dynamic range was one of the buzzwords (buzzphrases?) at this year's CES. This is a good thing, as it could mean better-than-plasma picture quality.
At a special sneak preview, a few of us journo types got to see upcoming High Dynamic Range technology from Dolby. And it might just improve all TVs.
Billionaire American engineer and inventor Ray Dolby died this week at age 80. The wide-scale adaption of his technology changed the way almost everyone listens to music and movies.
