Dolby and Kinopolis to Bring First Dolby Cinema to Germany
SAN FRANCISCO and MUNICH, Germany, June 13, 2018 -- Dolby Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE:DLB) and Kinopolis have entered into an agreement for the first deployment of Dolby Cinema in Germany. The initial site is expected to open later in 2018 at the renowned Mathäser Palast in Munich. Kinopolis is the first company to bring Dolby Cinema to Germany.
The Dolby Vision laser projection system delivers high dynamic range with enhanced color technology and a contrast ratio which far exceeds anything on the market today. The result is a dramatically different viewing experience that presents strikingly vivid and realistic images, making viewers feel like they are inside the movie's world.
With Dolby Atmos, guests are transported inside the story with immersive sound that flows all around them, even overhead, creating breathtaking realism and a powerfully moving experience.
With Dolby’s inspired design, the Dolby Cinema at Mathäser will provide customers with the ideal cinema environment from the theatre entrance to the end of the movie story.
