Great Sound Radiates Across UltraViolet With Dolby

Stocks in this article: DLB

Dolby Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE: DLB) today announced that leading content-encoding solution providers will use Dolby ® Digital Plus technology to enable high-quality multichannel audio for the Digital Entertainment Content Ecosystem (DECE) UltraViolet platform through the UltraViolet Common File Format (CFF).

“A new era in entertainment has begun with UltraViolet, and Dolby is working closely with the content community to ensure that consumers of UltraViolet content can enjoy optimized sound no matter what content, service, or device they choose,” said Ron Geller, Vice President, Worldwide Content Relations, Dolby.

UltraViolet enables consumers to create personal digital entertainment collections, with the freedom to access their content both at home and on the go across multiple devices. The UltraViolet CFF makes download functionality consistent across all UltraViolet retailers, which makes it easy for consumers to move or copy downloaded files directly across UltraViolet-compliant devices or applications, without the need for additional downloads or bandwidth.

“DECE is built on the efforts of the most innovative and forward-thinking companies in digital entertainment. Dolby has worked on the early verification and refinement of the Ultraviolet Common File Format technical design as well as investing to help establish and complete the testing and verification process for Dolby Digital Plus encoded CFF files,” said Mark Teitell, General Manager and Executive Director, DECE. “We welcome and appreciate Dolby’s contributions to the process and are excited to be working together on UltraViolet.”

Working with Encoding Companies to Deliver Unparalleled Sound

The number of devices and services that support high-definition entertainment is growing rapidly, and Dolby Digital Plus is a powerful and efficient way to bring high-quality audio to UltraViolet, which combines the benefits of cloud access with the power of an industry standard. Dolby Digital Plus enables the delivery of high-quality audio to any compatible device and distribution workflow, and it helps connect UltraViolet with more than 900 million products, including connected TVs, smartphones, tablets, PCs, game consoles, and Blu-ray players using the technology to deliver high-quality sound.

When used on Ultraviolet, Dolby Digital Plus offers content-encoding providers a powerful means to ensure consumers get the experience envisioned by the music artist, film director, or sound designer.
