Envivio (Stand 1.D73) and Dolby will showcase the ultimate entertainment experience: Ultra HD video with vivid High Dynamic Range (HDR) at IBC.
This will be possible for the first time by combining Dolby Vision, Dolby AC-4 and Envivio real-time encodings solutions.
Envivio is the first to be able to demonstrate real-time encoding in both Dolby Vision and Dolby AC-4, a powerful new audio format in the Dolby Audio family. Dolby AC-4 addresses the current and future needs of next-generation audio entertainment services including broadcast and Internet streaming. It delivers the highest audio quality to the consumer, but at a much lower bandwidth than other formats.
Julien Signés, CEO for Envivio, commented: With Dolby we have broadcast events such as the French Open in 4K with AC-4 audio, to demonstrate how our technologies together help the video industry move to the next level of quality audio and video delivery.
“Today, we are the partner of choice for some of the most prominent Live Ultra HD broadcast events in the world.
“With the added support of HDR, we are highlighting the readiness of the video industry to move to the to the next level of audio and visual experience and delivering images that engage the senses and stir the emotions of viewers anywhere across the globe.”
Giles Baker, senior VP, broadcast business group, Dolby Laboratories, added: “Dolby AC-4 is proving itself in broadcast environments around the world. Our partner Envivio has been using Dolby AC-4 encoding in broadcasts like the 2015 French Open tennis tournament. At IBC Dolby and Envivio will show the industry’s readiness to deliver Dolby Vision and show how it delivers images that captivate the viewer’s senses with astonishing brightness, incomparable contrast, and brilliant color you can fee.
“With a wider color gamut and HDR, Dolby Vision revolutionizes the viewing experience in the cinema and on TV, and Dolby is working closely with key partners like Envivio to bring these experiences to broadcast viewers around the world.”
