Dolby’s HD Experience at Mobile World Congress

Posted by at 12:14 pm on February 13, 2011

Dolby Laboratories will demonstrate how its technologies deliver premium entertainment experiences to mobile devices at the 2011 GSMA Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, Spain, from February 14–17.

Dolby technologies will display some of the latest handsets to support Dolby technologies. These handsets include the new Nokia E7 with Dolby Digital Plus discreet 5.1 audio output, as well as devices such as the new LG Optimus Black smart phone with Dolby Mobile, handsets from HTC, Acer, and Fujitsu, and the ZTE Light Tab—the first tablet to feature Dolby Mobile.

“There are now over 80 handsets worldwide that use Dolby technologies to enhance the mobile entertainment experience,” said Andreas Spechtler, Regional Vice President, EMEA, Dolby Laboratories, “and we are working with leading mobile device manufacturers including Acer, Fujitsu, HTC, Lenovo, LG, NEC Casio, Nokia, Pantech, and ZTE.”

Dolby also will show how it enables the mobile industry to deliver its technologies by working with content aggregators and distributors. The latest version of Dolby Media Generator helps companies to format and deliver high-quality music and video content for mobile and PC consumption and already drives a range of leading content services from companies such as Audiotube, PacketVideo, Deezer, Omnifone, Faith Wonderworks, and Rhapsody. Most recently, Saffron Digital added Dolby Media Generator to its class-leading cluster encoder to deliver multichannel audio. At the MWC Dolby stand, cloud aggregator Nativ Limited will demonstrate how Dolby Media Generator can be incorporated into Nativ Limited’s Mio media management platform to create highly scalable and secure cloud-based media processing and delivery for Dolby Digital Plus and Dolby Pulse encoded content.

Complementing Dolby’s suite of audio technologies at Mobile World Congress is Dolby Voice, which brings clear, consistent voice communications to the Bluetooth headset market.
