At NAB2007 (April 14-19 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, booth N2513), Dolby will showcase:

- The Dolby DP600 Program Optimizer, a unique tool for automatic file-based loudness analysis and correction. The DP600 offers faster-than-real-time file-based audio encoding, decoding, and transcoding of Dolby technologies and other audio formats for cable, satellite, IPTV and terrestrial television broadcasters.

- Dolby Digital Plus, a scalable audio solution for next-generation broadcast and IPTV formats. There will be a complete, end-to-end IPTV demonstration of Dolby Digital Plus, from transmission to implementation, in real, deployable products at NAB2007.

- Dolby Media Producer, a professional line of four software products for audio mastering, including encoding, decoding, and supporting tasks, that support all Dolby audio technologies for disc-based media formats such as HD DVD, Blu-ray Disc, DVD-Video and DVD-Audio.

New for NAB2007, Dolby will debut Dolby Media Encoder SE, which provides the same quality and functionality as the Dolby Media Encoder network version but is designed for single-computer use. Dolby is also announcing Universal applications for all Dolby Media Producer products, which will run natively on Intel and Power PC systems alike, giving all Mac users the best possible performance.

"Dolby is committed to providing solutions that enable professionals working with all entertainment mediums to deliver the ultimate experience for consumers-be it listening to the radio, watching TV or a movie, or at a live concert," said Tom Daily, director of marketing, professional division, Dolby Laboratories.
