Dolby demos video technologies at CEATEC Dolby Laboratories, Inc., infamous for its role in high quality surround sound audio systems, has shown off some of its new video imagining technologies at CEATEC today. The company is previewing Dolby Contrast and Dolby Vision at the event in room 201B. "Dolby is committed to providing innovative entertainment technology solutions. At CEATEC, we are demonstrating new video technologies that could transform LCD picture quality," said Francois Modarresse, Vice President, Marketing, Dolby Laboratories.
He added: "Dolby's surround sound technologies are world renowned, and our imaging capabilities are already modernizing how we see entertainment. For example, Dolby Digital Cinema systems deliver movies with opening-night quality every night." Dolby Contrast, leveraging light-emitting diodes (LEDs) with local dimming, provides outstanding contrast ratio and improvements to the overall image quality.

Dolby Vision adds to LED backlight units with local dimming advanced high-dynamic range algorithms, which deliver stunning images, by providing simultaneously high brightness and high contrast ratio. In demonstrations, LCD displays with Dolby Vision deliver picture quality that virtually matches real-world visual perception of depth, detail, and color.
