Dolby plays key role in many Oscar movies

Techstination feature for Monday, February 25, 2019

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.       Not only were the Academy Awards once again at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood….but the audio and video technology company played a prominent role in many of the films that were up for awards.   Screenwriter and Forbes contributing writer Mark Hughes…

“Dolby has really been transformative for the film industry and the viewing experience, whether it’s award nominated films or your big popcorn blockbusters with Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos.   When you look at the Oscars for example, five of the eight best picture nominees use Dolby technology.  And in the sound category, all of the sound nominees, that’s five sound editing and five sound mixing nominees, all of them were presented in Dolby Atmos.”

And Dolby Atmos is showing up in more and more  AV equipment to let you bring the experience home.
