    Dolby Debuts Dolby TrueHD, 'Picture-Perfect' Sound for
    Next-Generation HD Discs

    Dolby Laboratories announced its latest advancement in lossless audio
    technology, Dolby TrueHD, which is designed to complement the recent
    developments in high-definition optical disc formats. With Dolby
    TrueHD, home theater viewers will experience audio performance equal
    to the highest-resolution studio masters currently available.

    The company is demonstrating Dolby TrueHD along with Dolby Digital
    Plus at its CEDIA Expo. These two Dolby technologies are essential
    elements of next-generation high-definition entertainment, having been
    adopted for use in both the HD DVD and Blu-ray Disc formats. Dolby
    TrueHD and Dolby Digital Plus technologies are mandatory audio codecs
    in the HD DVD format as well as optional features in the Blu-ray Disc
    format. Dolby Digital is mandatory in both formats.

    "The high-definition disc formats being discussed today will provide
    viewers with new levels of image quality," said Craig Eggers, Dolby
    Senior Manager, Consumer Electronics Technology Marketing. "With Dolby
    TrueHD, those same viewers can experience multichannel surround sound
    that fully complements the detail and fidelity of the high-definition
    picture."

    Dolby TrueHD builds upon the proven foundation of MLP Lossless(TM) by
    incorporating higher bit rates, additional channels, enhanced stereo
    mix support, and extensive metadata functionality, including dynamic
    range control and dialogue normalization. Enabling recordings that are
    bit-for-bit identical to studio masters, MLP Lossless was first
    introduced in DVD-Audio, and has since become the leading multichannel
    lossless audio format. In addition, Dolby TrueHD provides support for
    all of the new speaker locations designated by the Society of Motion
    Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) for digital cinema
    applications (RP 226).

    "When coupled with high-definition video, Dolby TrueHD offers an
    exceptional home theater experience that enables you to enjoy sound as
    stunning as the picture," said Ed Schummer, Senior Vice President and
    General Manager of the Consumer Division, Dolby Laboratories. "When a
    playback system displays the Dolby TrueHD logo, viewers are assured
    they are hearing the highest-quality audio performance possible -- as
    if they are hearing the studio master itself."
