NBC to deliver Olympics in Dolby surround

Dolby Labs has announced that the NBC network’s coverage of the upcoming winter Olympics from Torino, Italy, will be broadcast in HDTV and Dolby Digital 5.1 surround.

The Olympics’ opening and closing ceremonies will be broadcast in Dolby surround, as well as most of the major competitions including speed skating, figure skating, ice hockey, ski jumping, freestyle skiing and more.

The events’ production broadcasts will be recorded live in 5.1 surround. The signal will then be encoded using Dolby E and pro logic technology, and the Torino audio signal will be transported to the NBC network’s broadcast facilities in Los Angeles and New York. There the signal will be re-encoded and transmitted to NBC network affiliates everywhere in Dolby 5.1 surround and HDTV. Analog broadcasts of the event will also receive surround sound in Dolby’s Pro Logic II format.
