Throughout the last 30 years Dolby and Star Wars have formed a strong symbiotic bond in providing the ultimate entertainment experience. So it was no surprise when Dolby teamed up with the 501st Legion’s Japanese Garrison to attract conference attendees to its booth at CEATEC Japan — one of the largest Consumer Electronics shows in the Asia Pacific region which took place from October 2-6. Darth Vader, accompanied by the Emperor’s Royal Guard and stormtroopers, was on hand to patrol the Dolby booth and attract conference attendees to Dolby demonstrations at the show.
The Force was strong with Dolby and the 501st Legion as thousands of attendees witnessed Dolby unveil its latest entertainment technologies. These included Dolby 3D Digital Cinema for movie theaters, Dolby Vision and Dolby Contrast to improve LCD TVs with LED backlighting as well as Dolby Volume.
