CES: Dolby unveils new software

Company showcases laptops, home theater systems in Vegas

Dolby is showing their latest sound enhancements for mobile, gaming and home theater in the “Rain Man” suite at Caesar’s Palace.

Notable is new software that will be bundled on Acer laptops with Windows 7. Software features dynamic “intelligent equalization” and boosts levels while automatically avoiding distortion and clipping, so laptop speakers get far more volume and clarity than is possible with the software turned off.

With laptops becoming the very important — if not primary — entertainment center for students and young adults, and with the PC turning into an entertainment hub that can send content to other devices in the home, the quality boost on the PC looks especially significant.

Dolby is also showing a home theater playing the same 7.1 audio mix that goes to theaters.

Dolby engineers say this is part of a larger trend of home and mobile content improving in quality. Home content has previously been of lesser quality than what has been available in theaters, and mobile content has been lesser quality than home theater content. Quality standards are rising across the board.
