Dolby Volume to Debut on New Toshiba HDTVs

Intelligent Audio-Processing Technology That Delivers Consistent Volume Levels From Various Audio Sources to Be Available Next Month in Japan

Dolby Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE:DLB) today highlighted the first market availability of its unique Dolby Volume audio-processing technology on Toshiba’s new REGZA ZH500 and ZV500 series LCD HDTVs launching in Japan next month.

Dolby Volume allows consumer electronics products to deliver consistent volume levels from various audio sources, and is part of a comprehensive Dolby solution that addresses loudness issues. This includes professional technologies that aid in setting correct audio levels prior to broadcast and device-level implementations that aid in controlling volume inconsistencies at playback.

“When we first demonstrated Dolby Volume, we immediately knew that consumers would be drawn to its elegant approach to mitigating loudness variations,” said Page Haun, Director of Product Management, Broadcast Segment, Dolby Laboratories. “We’re very excited to have worked closely with Toshiba in providing this technology to consumers.”

Dolby Volume is specifically designed for consumer electronics products, as it automatically and seamlessly controls audio levels over a wide range of devices and consumer media formats. It provides a simple and elegant option for managing loudness control.

In addition to audio leveling, Dolby Volume offers another benefit. Due to the nature of human hearing, many subtleties of the content can be lost when listening at low audio levels. To address this problem, Dolby Volume continually analyzes the audio and properly balances low, middle, and high frequencies to maintain the nuances and impact of the program material regardless of playback volume. The result is improved surround imaging, enhanced dialogue intelligibility, and improved overall clarity of the audio content at lower levels.
