Craig Eggers, Senior Manager of Dolby Labs, speaks with us at the 2008 Audioholics Expo event in Orlando, Florida and discusses Dolby TrueHD as well as the new Dolby Volume which promises to revolutionize the way consumers listen to home theater and multi-channel music in their living rooms. In particular, Dolby Volume allows better sound reproduction of multi-channel movie and music content without losing surround channel information and eliminating the "pumping and breathing" artifacts so commonly found in typical 'loudness' controls.
Dolby Volume gives a consistent listening experience across all Dolby Volume-enabled products. It makes up for the differences between broadcast program material and commercial broadcasts. It also keeps the volume consistent and level across various sources and devices. Dolby Volume maintains the high frequency and low frequency information, even when the volume is set lower than reference levels - common in any home theater let along during very quiet nighttime listening sessions.
Incidentally, Dolby & Pioneer took home the Best of Show awards for Best Video and Best Audio during the 2008 event.
