Dolby is world renowned for delivering quality audio products in the AV, Broadcast and Cinema markets. Customers with large meeting spaces or demanding conferencing quality look to Dolby and their Pro-Audio Integrators to deliver superior solutions.
Large meetings are highly interactive. People talk over each other. When the participants are in-person they can process all of the audio visual cues to comprehend those interactions. It's not the same for remote participants. Traditional speaker phones detect the loudest voice and switch the microphone to focus on that talker, creating challenges for remote participants.
Dolby focuses on providing the best audio experience which is as "close-to-being-there" as possible. They developed a new type of conference phone designed to capture all the audio in a room simultaneously using multiple simultaneously active microphones and with play out on multiple speakers, replicating the audio separation of the original talkers. They came up with their own codec called the DVC-2 and a Conferencing Service called Dolby Voice to full take advantage of the new phone and Codec.
But, users need to be able to make calls through any IP-PBX or a hosted call control platform as well as join the Dolby Voice service. Patton's SmartNode eSBC is used to secure and facilitate connectivity to either Dolby Voice or any other PBX calling or conferencing solutions and deliver SIP demarcation from the public SIP trunk provider while maintaining interoperability and interconnectivity.
