Dolby Labs is using biosensors to learn how we’re reacting to movies and shows
Sunday, 19 March 2017 () The myriad ways in which video and audio impact our brains and bodies have long been studied by academia. But that research isn’t only taking place in university labs: at Dolby Laboratories, the company has been conducting its own internal research into how media can trigger reactions in human beings.
On a recent tour through Dolby Laboratories in San Francisco, the audio and imaging company spent most of the day showing journalists the latest developments in its proprietary high-dynamic range (HDR) technology, which is being licensed to Netflix for the new series Iron Fist. One stop along the tour included a closer look at how Dolby scientists are studying how we react to what we’re watching.
