Dolby 3D Digital Cinema and Digital Surround Sound Selected for Toronto International Film Festival and TIFF Bell Lightbox

Delivers premium-quality Dolby 3D for world premiere of Werner Herzog’s Cave of Forgotten Dreams
Dolby Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE: DLB) announced today that the Toronto International Film Festival® (TIFF) has equipped the TIFF Bell Lightbox, the festival’s newly constructed year-round home, with a full suite of Dolby® cinema technologies. The TIFF Bell Lightbox is outfitted with Dolby 3D, Dolby Digital Cinema, and Dolby Digital surround sound. 
 
“The Toronto International Film Festival has raised the bar for viewing and sound quality at film festivals with the new TIFF Bell Lightbox, complete with the latest Dolby technologies,” said Bill Allen, Senior Director, Production Services, Dolby Laboratories. “The international film community can rest assured that its films will be presented at the TIFF Bell Lightbox the way the directors envisioned. The state-of-the-art complex is now a permanent fixture in downtown Toronto.” 
 
The TIFF Bell Lightbox includes a Dolby Show Library, Dolby Screen Servers, Dolby CP650 and CP750 Digital Cinema Processors, DMA8Plus Digital Media Adapters, and a Dolby 3D playback system. 
 
In addition, Dolby Production Services will be onsite at TIFF to ensure that audiences receive the best possible entertainment experience. Dolby has worked closely with TIFF over the past two decades and will be calibrating sound and enhancing image quality at all of the TIFF venues. Dolby has also partnered with TIFF to provide participants with the technology and expertise to convert their films into industry standard DCI Digital Cinema Packages for digital playback at the festival. 
  
“Technical innovation and the history of cinema are inextricably linked and Dolby has always been at the forefront of the industry. In as much as an institution such as ours has an artistic vision and mandate to represent the best of cinema, it also requires a technical vision to match.” said Andrei Gravelle, Technical Manager, TIFF. 
  
At this year’s festival, Dolby 3D will be used to present the world premiere of Cave of Forgotten Dreams directed by legendary filmmaker Werner Herzog. Herzog puts 3D technology to a profound use, taking audiences back in time over 30,000 years as he films inside the Chauvet caves of southern France, capturing the oldest known pictorial creations of humankind in their astonishing natural setting. The premiere will be held at the TIFF Bell Lightbox 1 at 9:45 p.m. on Monday, September 13, 2010.
 
The 35th Toronto International Film Festival will run from September 9–19 at venues throughout Toronto, Canada. The TIFF Bell Lightbox will open on September 12, 2010. For more information on the Toronto International Film Festival and the TIFF Bell Lightbox visit www.tiff.net.
