Dolby surged 17% on the news of revived Windows 8 deal with Microsoft. It doesn’t really matter whether or when such deal happens. Dolby as a matter of fact, is providing the more effective and efficient solutions than its main competitor, DTS (“Dolby vs DTS Surround Sound”). When there are more devices on the move and more contents delivered via Internet or from the cloud, efficiency, which means delivering same high quality sound with less bandwidth, matters more. No matter what devices people are using, they surely want to hear high quality sound. Dolby is the obvious choice. It’s the user experience matters most in the entertainment industry. And Dolby just has the right product.
Besides the technical advantage on the efficiency, Dolby is also moving ahead at all fronts. Dolby wins naming rights to Hollywood icon only a few days earlier before the date they stroke the deal with Microsoft. Last month, Dolby Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE: DLB – News) and Royal Philips Electronics (NYSE: PHG; AEX: PHI) unveiled Dolby® 3D, a 3D HD format and suite of technologies designed to deliver full HD 3D content to 3D-enabled devices, including glasses-free displays. Dolby 3D is being demonstrated at the NAB Show® (April 16–19, 2012) at booth SU1212. Not to mention Dolby Atom, also announced last month by Dolby, is the most significant innovation in years and represents the future for entertainment sound in cinema.( “Dolby Atmos Is the Future of Entertainment Sound”)
I never doubted that Dolby is one of the ideal companies an investor can find in this world. (“Dolby Lab Is on Sale“) When Dolby’s share price dived last year, I bought more. I thought it will take longer time to bounce back. It now seems coming back beyond my expectation.
