This year, the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences will distribute shows that are nominated for Emmy Awards in Outstanding Sound Editing and Outstanding Sound Mixing categories via DVD so that judges will be able to hear the shows in their original multichannel broadcast formats. In addition, shows can be heard in Dolby Surround, Dolby Digital 5.1 and in stereo. Previously, the Academy distributed nominated content on VHS cassettes.

Programs presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 that have been nominated for a sound-related category include The Sopranos, Live From Baghdad, Meredith Wilson's The Music Man, The 75th Annual Academy Awards, The 45th Annual Grammy Awards, Alias and James Cameron's Expedition: Bismarck.

"Audio professionals mix many shows in surround sound because they believe that the format improves the viewing experience, so we are now distributing content on DVD to allow the judges to hear the nominated program the way mixers originally intended," said John Leverence, VP of Awards for the Television Academy.

"We're very gratified about this development," said Patrick Artiaga, director of automotive and broadcast marketing at Dolby Laboratories. "With this move to DVD, the Academy voters will consider the quality of the multichannel mixes the sound editors and mixers have worked so hard to produce."
