Dolby previews Dolby Volume technology

January 23rd, 2007 · No Comments

The latest technology from Dolby Labs is designed to diminish TV sound rather than enhance it. Dolby Volume has been created to eliminate the wild fluctuations in TV volume that occur both between programmes and advertising breaks, and even source components, by using ‘a complex model of how humans perceive and organize sound.’ The object of the new technology is to allow ‘any audio source played through the TV’s speakers to match a desired target playback level set by the user.’
Dolby Volume promises to remove all sonic artifacts introduced by volume control and compression technologies. Integrated circuits with the software are expected to be available to TV manufacturers this Spring, but Dolby does not expect the technology to be integrated into amplifiers and receivers in the foreseeable future.
