San Francisco (February 7, 2006)–Dolby Laboratories announced the new Dolby Lake Processor, the first product combining Dolby Laboratories’ and Lake Technology’s audio expertise. The Dolby Lake Processor is a digital signal processing hardware and software system providing advanced loudspeaker management and equalization functionality.
According to Dolby, the system is easy to install and use, providing sound engineers the control and flexibility they need to focus on the audio quality for tour sound, fixed installations, and studio applications.
“The new Dolby Lake Processor combines trusted Dolby audio expertise with visionary, high-quality solutions from Lake Technology,” said Ervin Grinberg, marketing Manager, Dolby Laboratories. “The Dolby Lake Processor enables the sound engineer to focus on the quality of sound rather than the technicalities of the sound system.”
“Dolby provides technology to enhance the entertainment experience,” said Tom Daily, director of marketing, professional division, Dolby Laboratories. “Expanding into the live sound reinforcement and fixed installation arenas allows us to further improve the audio experience for even more consumers.”
The new processor is the first live sound product released by Dolby, which acquired Lake Technology in September 2003.
The Dolby Lake Processor enables sound engineers to save time in the setup and handling of loudspeaker systems. The processor provides better control and flexibility of complex speaker systems throughout setup and during the event. Additionally, the Dolby Lake Controller software provides centralized control for a network of these hardware processors. Based on Lake’s sound reinforcement technologies, the new system is said to include an easy-to-use interface for real-time management, an advanced loudspeaker processing system, and Iso-Float ground isolation technology.
