Dolby, Huawei Announce First Dolby Atmos Sound System Enabled Devices (MESA)

Dolby Laboratories and Huawei today announced a new series of MateBook laptops featuring the world’s first Dolby Atmos Sound System, a Dolby designed sound system combining custom speakers and software to deliver exceptional audio from a PC form factor. Dolby’s latest innovations deliver a more immersive experience that puts you inside the action. Dolby has addressed traditional shortcomings in the form factor by incorporating a breakthrough approach: by working with partners to vertically integrate the entire audio sub-system – encompassing bespoke hardware and software – each viewer is treated to a finely tuned auditory experience.

“Dolby Atmos Sound System is enabling a new level of immersive experiences through PC speakers, extending the reach of Dolby Atmos into the portable realm,” said Giles Baker, SVP, Consumer Entertainment Group, Dolby Laboratories. “This innovation is made possible through deep collaboration in both hardware and software engineering, and we are thrilled to partner with Huawei on its new feature-rich set of laptops.”

With Dolby Atmos at its core, the Dolby Atmos Sound System creates audio that moves all around you while delivering boosted bass, enhanced volume without distortion on speakers and headphones, and a superior listening experience with a larger range of frequencies for the most natural and lifelike sound. It’s an award-winning technology that breathes life into storytelling by allowing content creators the creative freedom to place and move sound anywhere, even overhead. Dolby Atmos began life in the cinema and has since expanded into hundreds of experiences and form factors, including AVRs, sound bars, smartphones and PCs.

Huawei is bringing the “best-in-class” performance, design and user experience to its new line up of MateBook PCs, introducing a dynamic mobile experience from beginning to end. The flagship HUAWEI MateBook X is the first PC to feature Dolby Atmos Sound System with a speaker system co-designed with Dolby. It includes two motors in each speaker, placed in an upward-firing configuration that directs sound at you in a clear and natural way. The HUAWEI MateBook D also features Dolby Atmos Sound System.

“We are very excited to continue our track record of bringing to market high-end consumer devices with the latest technologies,” said Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei’s Consumer Business Group. “And what better way to showcase our innovation than working with Dolby, the innovator in sound and imaging technology, to bring the best possible audio experience to our customers.”
