CHICAGO and SAN FRANCISCO, March 01, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- West’s Unified Communications Services and Dolby Laboratories, Inc. announced today a partnership bringing the exceptional sound quality and clarity of Dolby Voice to the world’s largest conferencing-dedicated network with the launch of InterCall® Reservationless-Plus® with Dolby Voice®. Photos accompanying this announcement are available at http://www.globenewswire.com/NewsRoom/AttachmentNg/9006e550-23ce-488a-bc08-1d5c82d1912b http://www.globenewswire.com/NewsRoom/AttachmentNg/bfe2f97b-2052-45bf-a60e-ae752be93427 Reservationless-Plus with Dolby Voice provides users with enhanced audio quality through Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) networks. Dolby Voice and the Dolby Conference Phone bring Dolby audio innovation to business communications. With Dolby Voice, meetings sound clearer and are easier to follow, making collaboration effortless. Reservationless-Plus with Dolby Voice integrates with a full range of West’s proprietary solutions, including InterCall Unified Meeting® 5 and InterCall MobileMeet®, as well as partner solutions such as Cisco WebEx® when used with InterCall Reservationless-Plus audio. Users can get the Dolby Voice audio experience from desktop computers and mobile devices or in meeting rooms as part of West’s delivered audio, web, and video conferencing solutions. “By connecting the power of Dolby Voice with our global conferencing-dedicated network, West continues to deliver on its promise to provide the best possible conferencing experience,” said Rob Bellmar, executive vice president of business operations for West’s Unified Communications Services segment. “Diminished quality is not only a top productivity killer, but it’s also one of the main hurdles to VoIP adoption. Reservationless-Plus with Dolby Voice ensures end users benefit from the simplicity of VoIP conferencing and best-in-class sound quality.” The Dolby Conference Phone is now available from West and extends the Reservationless-Plus with Dolby Voice experience to and from meeting rooms. It picks up all voices from anywhere in the room and makes it easier for remote participants to clearly hear and identify who is speaking, so they can contribute as if they are actually in the room. “Dolby Voice creates exceptionally clear and natural audio for conferencing. By employing the most advanced noise suppression technology and delivering sounds from distinct virtual locations Dolby Voice enhances the understanding and conversation flow while preventing distracting background noise on calls,” said Andrew Border, vice president, Dolby Communications Group. “We’re looking forward to working with West to revolutionize how organizations collaborate in meeting rooms, at their desktops or on mobile devices anywhere on their global network." Whether on a conference call or in a web or video conference, audio quality is essential to having a successful meeting. According to a recent study by Wainhouse Research, 82 percent of organizations identify one or more problems with conferencing audio. The most common are background noise (51 percent), audio clarity (44 percent), and an inability to understand the conversation when more than one person speaks (29 percent). West’s collaboration with Dolby enhances its existing unified communications and conferencing solutions by transforming the meeting experience with heightened audio quality contributing to more natural conversation flow and increased productivity. Even mobile participants, who in the past often injected distracting noise, can now hear more clearly and more easily participate in conversations. “Dolby Voice represents the standard in high fidelity conference calls for the enterprise. After years of compromised call quality from mobile phones and questionable fixed circuit connections, users are demanding a better service,” said Marc Beattie, senior analyst and partner, Wainhouse Research.  “West addresses this requirement with the broadest portfolio of Dolby Voice integrated into MobileMeet, Unified Meeting, Reservationless-Plus, and WebEx audio services.” Reservationless-Plus with Dolby Voice will be available initially to customers in North America. The company plans to extend the offering to EMEA and APAC regions later this year. For more information, visit www.westuc.com/dolby-voice.

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dolby Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE:DLB) today announced the company has exceeded major milestones, including the installation of 2,000 Dolby Atmos enabled cinema screens and the release of 500 movie titles mixed in Dolby Atmos. Since debuting in 2012 with Disney•Pixar’s Brave, Dolby Atmos has paved a new course for creative storytelling, transforming the ways in which audiences worldwide experience sound. “When Brave was released in 2012, Dolby Atmos enabled us to bring audiences into the rich and fantastic world of Merida through their execution of previously inaccessible soundscapes,” said Mark Andrews, writer and director of Disney•Pixar’s Brave. “Dolby Atmos enables our creatives at Pixar to tell stories with sound, taking audiences across new dimensions of entertainment. As one of the first to use Dolby Atmos, we have witnessed this platform’s steady growth and value as an essential element for the next-generation filmmaker.” Since its debut in cinemas worldwide, Dolby Atmos has quickly been embraced by all the major Hollywood studios and industry-leading filmmakers, including 15 Academy Award® winning directors and 28 Academy Award winning sound mixers, among others. Eighteen films featuring Dolby Atmos soundtracks have garnered Academy Award nominations, and eight of them have won for Best Sound Mixing, Best Sound Editing, Best Animated Feature Film, and Best Director. Deployed in more than 60 countries and more than 150 postproduction facilities, Dolby Atmos has been used for soundtracks on many regional local-language films and Hollywood titles to deliver heart-pounding action-adventure blockbusters, lush romances, feel-good comedies, and animated features. The technology paves the way for creative storytelling, building full audio atmospheres that excite the senses and inspire emotion, advancing what audiences then come to expect from cinema. In addition, Dolby Atmos is a key component of the Dolby Cinema experience, the award-winning premium cinema offering for moviegoers that combines spectacular image and sound technologies with inspired design to deliver the total cinema experience. Currently, more than 50 Dolby Cinema locations are screening films around the globe. “Dolby has made its mark on what consumers can expect from a powerful sound experience, and Dolby Atmos continues to shape the future of entertainment for any environment,” said Curt Behlmer, Senior Vice President of Content Solutions and Industry Relations, Dolby Laboratories. “Dolby Atmos is considered the preferred sound format by many who look to deliver the best in sound to the cinema, in the home, or on the go, and the possibilities are endless.” Since launching in the cinema, Dolby Atmos has become an integral part of the entertainment experience for consumers, enabling sound to come alive from all directions, including overhead, to deliver astonishing clarity, power, detail, and depth. Whether you are listening to music, watching movies or television shows, or playing your favorite video games, Dolby Atmos delivers the full impact of the entertainment experience. The success of Dolby Atmos, as a vital component of some of this decade’s powerful films, has paved the way for new applications in home theater, PC and mobile devices, video games, virtual reality, and even music venues, such as the famous Ministry of Sound nightclub in London. “The future of sound for home entertainment is full of amazing possibilities, and Vudu is leading the way for streaming video services by being the first to deliver the Dolby Atmos experience to homes,” said Scott Blanksteen, Vice President of Product, Vudu. “By leveraging Dolby Atmos—a highlight of our premium 4K video format, Vudu UHD—we are able to provide home audiences with dramatically enhanced sound quality that fully engages their senses and brings movies to life in their living room.” More than 20 titles are now available for over-the-top delivery by streaming-service providers like Vudu. More than 150 titles on Blu-ray Disc™ have featured a Dolby Atmos soundtrack, and more than 60 percent of the UHD Blu-ray media released include the format. This has paved the way for wide adoption by the consumer electrics industry. To date, more than 75 AVR and home-theater-in-a-box (HTiB) solutions are available, and more than 45 sound bar and speaker models by more than 20 speaker manufacturers provide consumers with a variety of form factor options and price points. In addition, more than 35 mobile devices support Dolby Atmos; three games include Dolby Atmos support on PC; and gaming consoles will soon support Dolby Atmos for Blu-ray. The flexible Dolby Atmos format is also available over headphones and headsets to deliver a single mix through the delivery of rich metadata, creating the peaks and valleys of sound once accessible only on the big screen. “By breaking the link between sound design and specific speaker layout, Dolby Atmos has really opened up the creative use of sound to deliver more immersive entertainment experiences,” said Avi Greengart, Research Director for Consumer Platforms and Devices, Current Analysis.

Patent
Dolby Laboratories Inc. | Date: 2015-03-03

This invention relates to the field of multichannel audio. More particularly, the invention relates to a method for the provision of audio channels suitable for application to loudspeakers located above conventional front loudspeakers.


Patent
Dolby Laboratories Inc. | Date: 2014-04-14

Disclosed are examples of systems, apparatus, methods and computer-readable storage media for dynamically adjusting thresholds of a compressor. An input audio signal having a number of frequency band components is processed. Time-varying thresholds can be determined. A compressor performs, on each frequency band component, a compression operation having a corresponding time-varying threshold to produce gains. Each gain is applied to a delayed corresponding frequency band component to produce processed band components, which are summed to produce an output signal. In some implementations, a time-varying estimate of a perceived spectrum of the output signal and a time-varying estimate of a distortion spectrum induced by the perceived spectrum estimate are determined, for example, using a distortion audibility model. An audibility measure of the distortion spectrum estimate in the presence of the perceived spectrum estimate can be predicted and used to adjust the time-varying thresholds.


Patent
Dolby Laboratories Inc. | Date: 2016-02-29

In one embodiment, a pickup system includes a wind detector and a wind suppressor. The wind detector has a plurality of analyzers each configured to analyze first and second input signals, and a combiner configured to combine outputs of the plurality of analyzers and issue, based on the combined outputs, a wind level indication signal indicative of wind activity. The analyzers can be selected from a group of analyzers including a spectral slope analyzer, a ratio analyzer, a coherence analyzer, a phase variance analyzer and the like. The wind suppressor has a ratio calculator configured to generate a ratio of the first and second input signals, and a mixer configured to select one of the first or second input signals and to apply to the selected input signal one of first or second panning coefficients based on the wind level indication signal and on the ratio.
