Dolby partnership

Dolby works hand in hand with all
industry stakeholders.

Full service support

We believe it is important to make solutions openly available to the industry in
specifications and standards issued by organizations such as the Advanced
Television Systems Committee (ATSC), Digital Video Broadcasting Project (DVB),
European Broadcasting Union (EBU), International Telecommunication Union (ITU),
Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE), and European
Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI).

We have helped lead the industry in standardizing technology and processes for
content creation and interchange. For example, Dolby and the BBC co-chaired
the ITU group that led development of the key audio definition model. This
international recommendation supports descriptions for channels, objects, HOA
(Higher Order Ambisonics), binaural, and bitrate-compressed audio elements. It
is an important milestone in enabling the open interchange of next-generation
immersive and personalized content.

In addition, we are working with NHK and others on next-generation loudness
recommendations through the ITU. This is a continuation of Dolby’s
decades-long commitment to ensuring that the broadcast industry has a
reliable system for consistently managing loudness.

In standards discussions, our message is,

“We’ll continue providing the full service support for our
technology that you’ve come to expect from us.”
