Dolby, technologies, apps, and implementation

He mentions the positives of competition and how it helps people achieve higher things in life. And in the times after the COVID situation, we will all have to adapt since it’s a new situation for all. Dolby is currently concentrating on trying to bring the cinematic effect to the homes of people. Though it would usually have taken time to reach such levels but the lockdown has accelerated it greatly.

Playing games and working on marketing them for Microsoft was one of the biggest positives. And to join Dolby when it had just reached India and it has been a great learning journey for him in Dolby. As for next steps for Dolby, in India the existing technologies needs to be evenly spread out. There are almost 700 screens in India that come with Dolby Atmos, and the company would want to have this technology be used by more screens for an evolved experience. The core focus for Dolby in India would be to follow the path it has. Dolby will try to drive the present balance in creation, distribution, and playback side of things according to Mathur.

Dolby On is the new app that the company launched, and Mathur discussed about it and explains how this is a brilliant app for content creators who can’t access the studios at the moment. The relevance of awareness of the new technologies is important explains Mathur. Creating awareness and education is integral in terms of the acceptability of different technologies.

Speaking about games and the evolution of technology, Mathur explains how Dolby technologies enrich the experience and help gamers as well. Speaking about cricket, Mathur found our suggestion of how Dolby could improve the experience for cricketers and now just the viewers, and wanted to approach his team about this.
