Dolby® Studio Feature Requirements Certification covers a wide range of studio sizes, equipment, and capabilities. Studios with this certification are able to produce a mix suitable for cinema release with the minimum standard of equipment required. However, film producers and directors often wish to identify those studios with superior equipment, acoustics, and competence for the production and mixing of their film sound.
Dolby Premier Studio Certification is a measure of technical excellence at every level of the studio’s operation. Room acoustics, monitoring standards (visual as well as audio), equipment selection, installation standards, synchronization accuracy, mixing competence, and technical experience are all measured and evaluated as part of the certification process. The standards are based on our research and the vast experience of studio engineers who have worked all over the world producing multichannel film soundtracks. We believe the exacting specifications will be a true measure of excellence, highly regarded by producers and directors.
Studios meeting the requirements of the Dolby Premier Studio Certification program will be identified on this Web page and on studio lists. They will be able to use a special logo in credits and advertising, and will receive a trophy and framed certificate. Details of the program will be widely distributed to major film producers.
Both existing Dolby Approved Studios and new dubbing studios can apply for Dolby Premier Studio Certification.
For more details about the program, please contact the Production Services Group. A manual and a special electronic calculator are available, which give all the necessary technical specifications and calculations, as well as step-by-step procedures for application.
Note: This program is not available in the US and Japan.
