Dolby Shows Latest HDR Display Prototype Developed in Collaboration with SIM2

Dolby delivers high-dynamic-range technologies for improved contrast and brightness for LCD displays with LED backlight technology

New York, March 31, 2008 -Dolby Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE: DLB) and SIM2

Multimedia are proud to showcase a new prototype high -dynamic -range
(HDR) -enabled LCD flat -screen display using Dolby's new light emitting
diodes (LED) local dimming technology.

Dolby's HDR technologies utilize the capabilities of LED -based backlight
units (BLUs) to provide outstanding contrast combined with crisp brightness
to deliver picture quality that matches real -world visual perception of
depth, detail, and color.

"This prototype is a stunning example of what Dolby's HDR technologies can
bring to the LCD market," said Bharath Rajagopalan, Senior Marketing
Manager, HDR, Dolby Laboratories. "As Dolby holds patents that are
fundamental to local dimming -based HDR, we welcome the opportunity to
showcase our innovative technology that delivers a dramatic improvement to
LCD displays."

As part of the collaboration effort, SIM2 designed and developed the BLU,
which drives the electronics of the LCD display plus the BLU and BLU thermal
management system. In addition to the prototype development, SIM2 will
provide Dolby with manufacturing reference designs.

"This prototype exemplifies SIM2's ability to incorporate breakthrough
technology into its electronics and optical design, providing -once again -a
stunning display that will be a key reference for next -generation LCD
displays," said Domenico Toffoli, Director, Professional Systems Business
Unit, SIM2. "We are proud to be the first to support the development of a
technology of this stature."

The prototype is a 46 -inch LCD with Dolby's HDR LED backlight technology:
• 1,838 LEDs
• LCD panel providing a resolution of 1920 1080, fitting a native 16:9
aspect ratio
• Brightness: greater than 4,000 cd/m2
• Contrast ratio: Infinite! Full On/Full Off
• Step size: 16 bits of luminance
• Luminance uniformity: more than 95% through the LCD panel

Incorporated into the design is a Xilinx Virtex™ field programmable gate
arrays (FPGAs) chipset, recently approved by Dolby for HDR innovations. The
Xilinx FPGA chipset enables the implementation of Dolby's complex
high -dynamic -range algorithms in the SIM2 display.

This prototype sports a contemporary and stylish design, befitting the most
diverse of home interiors; it is a new masterpiece by the award -winning
designer Giorgio Revoldini.

Dolby and SIM2 are showcasing the prototype in New York City today and will
be sharing its latest LCD display innovation in cities around the world.
