Dolby to supply equipment, personnel to Athens Olympics host broadcaster

Dolby Laboratories will provide equipment and personnel to enable Athens Olympics Broadcasting (AOB) to deliver the XXVIII Summer Games events in Dolby surround sound.

Dolby has provided equipment and personnel so that the sound from the various venues at the Summer Games can be delivered in multichannel audio.

Multichannel audio from selected venues will be captured and delivered to the network broadcasters using Dolby E for distribution to digital services and Dolby Pro Logic II for analog services or those limited to two-channel audio. Broadcasters will be able to add dialog and other elements to the stream and deliver it to their viewers in Dolby Digital, Dolby Pro Logic II or other sound formats.

Dolby has supplied AOB with Dolby E encoders and decoders (DP571 and DP572), Dolby Pro Logic II encoders (DP563), Dolby multichannel audio reference decoders (DP564) and measurement tools, including bitstream analyzers (DM100) and loudness meters (LM100). Dolby also will have technicians on site to ensure the highest quality audio broadcast transmission possible.
