DOLBY SURROUND PROGRAMS DOMINATE EMMY SOUND CATEGORIES; MULTIPLE NOMINATIONS FOR REGULAR SERIES, SPECIALS

 SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- The following was released today by Dolby Laboratories Inc.:
 The impact of Dolby Surround sound on television programming has been dramatically underscored with the nomination of no fewer than twelve different Dolby Surround broadcasts for 1993 Emmy awards in Sound Editing and Sound Mixing.
 Nominated in both categories were episodes of Paramount's popular "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" and "Star Trek: The Next Generation," the CBS hit series "Northern Exposure" and Lucasfilms ambitious "The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles" (ABC). Sound Mixing Emmy nominations also went to Fox's "The Simpsons" and CBS' "Brooklyn Bridge" (Comedy), CBS's "Doctor Quinn: Medicine Woman" (Drama), and "The 35th Annual Grammy Awards" (Variety or Music). All episodes of the nominated series are mixed and broadcast in Dolby Surround, which enables millions of viewers with multi-channel audio systems to enjoy theater-like sound in their homes.
 "We at Dolby are proud of our involvement with all the nominated programs, particularly those in the category of Sound Mixing for a Drama Series, which was swept by Dolby Surround Broadcasts," commented Steve Thompson, manager, Technology Development and Marketing, at Dolby Laboratories. "Dolby Surround puts viewers right in the middle of the audio action, giving producers and mixers added dramatic possibilities that are clearly reflected by these nominations."
 More than 25 TV series, plus high-profile concert specials, frequent sporting events, and numerous movies are broadcast in Dolby Surround. Known worldwide for advanced film sound and other audio technologies, Dolby Laboratories is based in San Francisco and serves the worldwide television community with facilities in New York, Los Angeles, England and Japan.
