"With Dolby Voice, Dolby has applied its expertise in sight and sound signal processing and compression technologies to provide the improvements in voice quality and clarity that make virtual meetings more natural and productive," said Roopam Jain, Industry Director, Connected Work Practice at Frost & Sullivan.
Leveraging the Dolby Voice technology, Dolby built the Dolby Conference Phone from the ground up to provide the full benefits of high-definition audio combined with background noise reduction and audio leveling of each participant. The solution features multiple microphones, advanced software, and a touchscreen interface that makes setting up and managing a conference call easy. It also allows for voice separation, accounting for voices coming from different directions. This Dolby Spatial Audio feature also catches the audible nuances of attitudes, intent, and other behavioral queues of meeting participants, making it easy for remote participants to feel like active participants and easily follow conversations.
Dolby has continued its passion for innovation with the introduction of a new video conferencing solution - Dolby Voice Room for huddle and small conference rooms. This solution is an easy to install and manage kit that includes the Dolby Conference Phone as the audio and control center for video conferencing, the Dolby Voice Camera and the Dolby Voice Hub. The Dolby Voice Room offers an affordable, simple, and robust audiovisual experience to users. In addition to offering the same high-definition audio, background noise reduction, and voice leveling experience for users, this solution provides high dynamic range (HDR) video mapping that adjusts to different lighting situations, utilizes intelligent scene framing that automatically provides participants with the most relevant meeting view, and provides a whiteboard view to give clarity and visibility to remote participants.
Dolby has successfully integrated Dolby Voice into video and web conferencing services through an extensive partner network that includes Highfive, BlueJeans, BT Conferencing, West and PGi. Through a fast growing network of technology partners, Dolby is extending the advantages of Dolby Voice to a wide range of use cases and customers, including large-, medium-, and small-sized organizations. Dolby's technology partners confirm that the Dolby Voice integration gives their services an edge and significant differentiation in a fiercely competitive market. In addition, Dolby has its sights on expanding its reach to many other unified communications and collaboration providers who can leverage Dolby Labs' innovative platform.
"Frost & Sullivan believes that Dolby Laboratories' focus on the core principles of innovation, quality, and simplicity is successfully disrupting the market and has positioned Dolby as a key business enabler for its customers," said Jain.
