The UK's leading Integrator and Equipment
Installer for the Digital Cinema Industry

Dolby

One of Sound Associates first cinema relationships, Sound Associates installed the very first Dolby processors for the first Star Wars film in 1977. Since the 1960s, Dolby Laboratories has been a leader in audio innovation. Beginning with Dolby® noise reduction, a form of audio compression and expansion that reduces background hiss in tape recording, Dolby Laboratories has developed and manufactured many ground-breaking technologies for professionals and consumers alike.

In the cinema arena, Dolby have led the way with the introduction of “A-Type” noise reduction in 1965, Dolby Stereo for Star Wars in 1977 and their most recent product innovation – Dolby Atmos. By employing overhead speakers as well as surrounds, Dolby Atmos can create realistic and natural sound experiences that envelop and involve the movie goer. Sound Associates have installed Atmos in a number of multiplex screens and in The Olympic, Barnes, currently the only UK independent to have this technology.

Dolby has acquired cinema server leader Doremi, increasing the breadth of their offerings and expertise in the highly competitive cinema landscape.

CP750

The CP750 Digital Cinema Processor is a key part of Dolby’s comprehensive digital cinema solution. It provides easy-to-operate audio control for any kind of digital cinema server, three digital preshow and alternative content sources, an existing film sound processor, a microphone input, and an analog nonsync source. Hearing-impaired and auxiliary analog outputs complement the CP750’s main eight-channel audio output.

While the CP750 is ideal for new digital-only theatres, it is also the best long-term choice for digital cinema conversions. Unlike limited-function digital adapters, the CP750 functions on its own when you no longer need to show film, saving the cost of maintaining or replacing your legacy processor.

The CP750 integrates with Dolby® Theatre Management System (TMS) software, so that it can respond to digital input selection and volume cues within a show, real-time volume control from any Dolby TMS client, and ASCII commands from third-party controllers.

Moreover, Dolby Digital 5.1, Dolby Digital Surround EX™, Dolby Pro Logic®, and Dolby Pro Logic II decoding are all included to deliver the best in surround sound before and during the show from all content.

The Dolby CP750 combines robust construction, state-of-the art hardware and software, practical functionality, and legendary Dolby quality. Whether you need to equip a single screen, a multiplex, or a large network, the Dolby CP750 is your most logical choice.
