Dolby Going to the Games with NBC


Dolby Laboratories Inc. is headed to Athens.

NBC will present selected events from the Summer Olympic Games Aug. 13-29 in Athens -- including the opening and closing ceremonies -- in “Dolby Digital 5.1” for HDTV viewers, the company said Thursday.

Analog NTSC (National Television Systems Committee) broadcasts will include “Dolby Pro Logic II.”

USA Network, MSNBC, CNBC, Bravo and Telemundo are invited to the party, too, as selected events on the cable networks will be presented with Dolby surround sound.
