Dolby’s 3D color correction solution licensed for 3D live events

MUMBAI: Dolby Laboratories, Inc. and International Datacasting Corporation have signed a licensing agreement to incorporate Dolby’s 3D color correction solution into IDC’s 3D live decoder hardware for live 3D content delivery to movie theatres.

“Both IDC and Dolby recognize that great image quality is essential to the live 3D experience. By leveraging Dolby’s expertise in color correction, IDC’s 3D live products, developed with Sensio Technologies, will take the 3D live experience to the next level,” said IDC president and CEO Ron Clifton.

“Exhibitors around the world want to present pristine live 3D content, and with Dolby’s 3D color correction in IDC’s products, they will have the ability to present alternative content in Dolby 3D. Both Dolby and IDC deliver innovative products for digital cinema, and this relationship reinforces our commitment to make the latest advancements available to our 3D exhibitors,” said Dolby Laboratories vice president, worldwide sales, products and services John Carey.

IDC plans to integrate Dolby’s proprietary 3D color correction solution into its SuperFlex Pro Cinema 3D Live Decoder to deliver advanced image quality to movie theatres equipped with Dolby 3D Digital Cinema systems. In addition, Dolby plans to include network-integration capabilities to ensure correct control of the Dolby 3D system.

The Pro Cinema 3D Live Decoder was developed by IDC in conjunction with Sensio Technologies in order to expand IDC’s digital cinema suite of products used for file-based movie delivery. The Pro Cinema 3D Live Decoder allows the streaming of live alternative content to movie theatres via satellite.
