Dolby Laboratories has launched a comprehensive range of services to help broadcast, post, music and DVD facilities deliver their products in surround sound and the new formats for DVD and Digital TV.

The Surround Sound Services team will provide technical assistance and operational advice to prepare a facility for the industry-standard formats Dolby Surround, Dolby Digital and Dolby E. Typical topics, according to Dolby, include studio monitoring configuration and calibration, encoding and meta data creation.

"With the success of surround sound on DVD and television, more and more facilities are being asked to deliver in Dolby surround sound formats," said Andrea Borgato, multichannel audio consultant at Dolby Laboratories. "We can help a facility set up their equipment and studios for surround sound work, and advise on recording and encoding techniques."

Among the first clients for this new service was Italy-based music and post facility Marinastudios. General manager Cristiano Solari said, "Dolby provided us with comprehensive training for delivering mixes in Dolby Digital, Dolby E and Dolby Surround, plus advice on monitoring, mixing and encoding. As a result, we can be confident that a mix that sounds great in the studio will sound great when it reaches the audience at home, too." Other clients have included post-production facilities Home, Lipsync, Stream and Transworld International, and broadcasters RAI and BSkyB.
