SAN FRANCISCO, March 09, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dolby Laboratories, Inc.
(NYSE: DLB) has been named to Fast Company’s prestigious annual list of the
World’s Most Innovative Companies for 2021. For the second year in a row,
Dolby has been among the top-ranked companies pushing the music industry

“We are excited to be honored again by Fast Company as one of the world’s
most innovative music companies,” said Todd Pendleton, Senior Vice President
and Chief Marketing Officer, Dolby Laboratories. “Empowering creativity and
self-expression is built into our DNA, and we are grateful to work with
artists of all levels to bring their music and stories to life through our
breakthrough technology.”

Over the last year, Dolby has transformed the audio recording, live streaming,
and mastering spaces. Dolby On, an easy-to-use recording app, was built to
deliver powerful audio processing with just one tap – it automatically
analyzes content and applies just the right touch of EQ, compression, noise
reduction, stereo widening, and more. From the app, creators can share
directly to their social platform of choice, including live streaming to
Twitch, Facebook, YouTube, and more.

In 2020, many artists couldn’t easily access a studio anymore. We solved
this issue through a major implementation of, Dolby’s new API
platform, with SoundCloud. The result is SoundCloud Mastering, Powered by
Dolby - which allows artists instant and affordable access to Dolby’s
advanced technology, directly from their SoundCloud workflow.

Now, creators can have Dolby’s mastering technology analyze their track and
listen the same way an engineer would - identifying the details, the sections,
and musical transitions that give the song its unique story arc. Using the
mastering profiles of choice, this detailed “sonic map” is then used to
sculpt the tone and overall dynamic profile of the artist’s mix while
prioritizing their creative intent.

Dolby Atmos Music, which Dolby was named to Most Innovative Companies in 2020
for, continues to grow and is now available to consumers in over 50 countries
with a growing library of songs available from the world’s most prolific

Fast Company’s editors and writers sought out the most groundbreaking
businesses across the globe and industries. They also judged nominations
received through their application process.

The World’s Most Innovative Companies is Fast Company’s signature
franchise and one of its most highly anticipated editorial efforts of the
year. It provides both a snapshot and a roadmap for the future of innovation
across the most dynamic sectors of the economy.

Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies issue (March/April 2021) is now
available online here
as well as in app form via iTunes and on newsstands beginning March 16, 2021.
The hashtag is #FCMostInnovative.
