Latest Dolby Cinema Products Receive Asian Debut at CineAsia

Dolby Laboratories will introduce the Dolby® ScreenTalk™ system and highlight new features for its top-selling CP650 Digital Cinema Processor at CineAsia, held in Bangkok, 3–6 December, stand 67/68.

Dolby ScreenTalk was first announced at Cinema Expo in June this year and will be given its Asian debut at CineAsia. Dolby Laboratories developed the Dolby ScreenTalk system in response to a need for a simpler and more cost-effective method of producing cinema subtitles. In addition to subtitles for foreign languages or for disability groups, the system also produces audio description and can be used for cinema screen-advertising.

The latest CP650 product features to be shown include Auditorium Assist™ and a new Digital Crossover Card. The addition of cinema processor available anywhere. As of press time, around these new features makes the Dolby CP650 Digital Cinema Processor the most comprehensive 8,000 CP650s have been sold worldwide.

As usual, Dolby will be sending engineers from the UK to provide technical assistance at screenings throughout the convention, together with local Dolby sound consultant, Mr. Sittiporn Srisanguansakul.

The company will sponsor the opening cocktail reception on the tradeshow floor on Tuesday 3 December, from 1.30 p.m. to 5.00 p.m.

Dolby ScreenTalk
Based around an off-the-shelf PC, the Dolby ScreenTalk system enables crystal clear, bright colour subtitles to be easily superimposed over the main film picture using either a customer-supplied video projector or the cinema's existing video projector if already installed (subject to a minimum requirement level). The system can also be connected to any alternative subtitling device that the theatre chooses.

The audio description files (also stored on the PC) provide a narration of a movie which can be beamed via a wireless headphone system to enable disability groups, including the visually impaired, to enjoy first-run movies without any impact on the rest of the audience.

Auditorium Assist
Auditorium Assist provides a simple and reliable way to indicate the stability and characteristics of a theatre's speakers, crossovers, amplifiers, and auditorium acoustics, providing a consistent entertainment experience for each screening.

Digital Crossover Card
The addition of the Digital Crossover Card (Cat. No. 791) with the Surround EXÔ Card (Cat. No. 790) integrates screen channel crossovers within the CP650. The card has an extensive PC setup software package and a variety of settings are available to optimise the playback chain of a cinema. The Digital Crossover Card provides additional balanced outputs for two-way or three-way screen channel speakers. These outputs carry the mid-range and high-frequency audio for Left, Centre, and Right channels. Setup of the crossovers is incorporated into the CP650 PC setup software to simplify the installation and alignment.

At CineAsia 2002, Dolby will also show its Digital Media Adapter™ (DMA™8), a tool that addresses not only the audio needs of digital cinema, but also those of alternative programming in cinemas, such as pay-per-view events, commercials, or digital broadcasts. The DMA8 was introduced at ShowEast 2001, and since then has been installed at over 50 cinemas worldwide, helping exhibitors with nascent digital cinema screenings. Dolby has also used its DMA8 and cinema audio engineering expertise for digital cinema demonstrations and research throughout the world this year.
