Verizon enhances QoE for OTT with Dolby Audio

April 24, 2017

Verizon Digital Media Services and Dolby Laboratories have announced that encoding and playback of Dolby Audio will now be integrated into the Verizon Digital Media Services platform. Dolby Audio will be available as an additional feature of the Uplynk Video Streaming service, augmenting content with cinematic-like sound and providing viewers with the ultimate visual and audio experience on the latest mobile and connected devices.

“The expectation for high quality audio and video doesn’t go away when content is streamed from the internet rather than delivered by a cable set top box or played from a Blu-ray player,” said Ted Middleton, chief product officer for Verizon Digital Media Services. “With the integration of Dolby Audio support into our digital media platform, we are ensuring that our customers — leading media and entertainment content creators and distributors — can provide their viewers with the ultimate home entertainment experience.”
