"DECE is built on the efforts of the most innovative and forward-thinking companies in digital entertainment. Dolby has worked on the early verification and refinement of the Ultraviolet Common File Format technical design as well as investing to help establish and complete the testing and verification process for Dolby Digital Plus encoded CFF files," said Mark Teitell, General Manager and Executive Director, DECE. "We welcome and appreciate Dolby's contributions to the process and are excited to be working together on UltraViolet."
Dolby is working with companies such as castLabs, Digital Rapids, and Elemental Technologies to ensure that UltraViolet content plays well on many services and devices that matter to consumers.
Dolby also announced the availability of a development kit to support the use of Dolby Digital Plus in the UltraViolet CFF specification. The latest development kit includes test vectors to support companies developing products and services based on the UV CFF specification. Today's update complements previous development kits to support the use of Dolby Digital Plus in the MPEG Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP (MPEG-DASH), Apple HTTP Live Streaming (HLS), and Microsoft Smooth Streaming online delivery systems.
