Revolutionary Dolby Cinema Innovations to be Honored with Two Scientific and Engineering Awards from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences
Dolby Atmos Cinema Sound System and the Christie E3LH Dolby Vision Cinema Projection System will be recognized at the annual Scientific and Technical Awards
SAN FRANCISCO, January 11, 2024 – Today, it was announced that innovations from Dolby Laboratories, a leader in immersive entertainment experiences, will be honored with two Scientific and Engineering Awards from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences at the upcoming Scientific and Technical Awards on Feb. 23. The awards celebrate two groundbreaking innovations in cinema: the Dolby Atmos Cinema Sound System and the Christie E3LH Dolby Vision Cinema Projection System.
Since launching in 2012, Dolby Atmos has revolutionized how moviegoers experience entertainment with technology that places sounds all around you, bringing listeners deeper into the stories and emotions onscreen. With over 3,100 theatrical titles in Dolby Atmos, more than 280 mixing facilities, and over 8,000 Dolby Atmos screens installed or committed across 137 countries, Dolby Atmos has reshaped sound production in cinema.
The Christie E3LH Dolby Vision Cinema Projection System enables the creation and playback of Cinematic Dolby Vision shown in Dolby Cinema, which brings characters to life with darker darks, brighter brights, and colors never before seen in the cinema. Leveraging Dolby’s innovative visual technology and a partnership with Christie Digital, the projector introduced an unrivaled contrast, allowing for the rich dark detail of Cinematic Dolby Vision while supporting full screen brightness at more than twice of a standard cinema.
“At Dolby, we’re driven by our goals of empowering creatives and delivering unparalleled entertainment experiences,” said Jed Harmsen, Head of Cinema and Group Entertainment at Dolby Laboratories. “We are deeply honored and humbled our innovations are being recognized by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for unlocking more immersive cinematic experiences. Our commitment to supporting storytellers remains unwavering, and we look forward to continuing to push the boundaries of entertainment in the years to come.”
