Dolby Laboratories, Inc. Announces Collaboration with Top Victory Investments Ltd. to Bring Dolby AC-4 to Market

Dolby Laboratories, Inc. announced a collaboration with Top Victory Investments Ltd. to promote the adoption of Dolby® AC-4 in its affiliate TP Vision’s televisions for broadcast systems and streaming Internet content. This collaboration follows the recent commitments from Sony Visual Products and VIZIO to promote Dolby AC-4. A powerful new audio format in the Dolby Audio™ family, Dolby AC-4 enables the most efficient delivery of premium consumer experiences to TVs and other consumer devices. Its practical, scalable, and flexible tools are built on technology and Dolby’s decades of proven know-how in the broadcast industry. Dolby AC-4 is available now for product development and is targeted for availability in consumer TVs starting in 2017. Dolby AC-4 provides new solutions for the current challenges broadcasters face—such as more-efficient delivery of high-quality experiences, alternate language versions, and services for hearing-impaired and visually impaired audiences—while providing a platform for new experiences from broadcast and Internet OTT services. As television evolves from 5.1-channel audio to new paradigms that include more personal and immersive experiences, the object-based audio capabilities of Dolby AC-4 will be essential to realizing this next generation of television entertainment.
