Amazon and Dolby
As Amazon developed the popular line of Kindle tablets to redefine the mobile multimedia experience, the company chose Dolby Digital Plus to deliver the next generation of audio performance.
Kindle Fire HDX
When Amazon engineers first envisioned the must-have features for the next generation of Kindle™ tablets and Amazon Instant Video™ streaming, they knew stellar audio would be high on the list. Movies, music, and games are all engineered with densely layered soundtracks that require sophisticated audio technology to be appreciated.
Amazon knew a quality audio experience was key to continuing their success in the marketplace.
As an established standard for audio excellence in home entertainment and cinemas worldwide, Dolby® Digital Plus™ was a natural choice to match the stunning high-definition entertainment experience of Amazon Instant Video and the Amazon Kindle Fire™.
Dolby Digital Plus delivers booming, distortion-free sound, dual-driver stereo speakers, and rich virtual surround sound for headphones over Amazon Instant Video and the Kindle Fire HD and HDX tablets.
"Dolby is the leader in inventing and delivering innovative audio solutions, which made its technology a perfect complement to the sound system we designed into the Kindle Fire HD tablets," said Dave Limp, Vice President, Amazon Kindle. "Customers have told us they want great sound for movies, music, and games. We knew we had the opportunity to invent from the ground up an incredible, immersive sound experience, which is just as important as the stunning display."
The Kindle Fire HDX tablets feature a perfect-color HDX display, a powerful quad-core processor, and Dolby Digital Plus for stellar sound.
Enjoy unlimited, commercial-free streaming of tens of thousands of popular movies and TV shows to your e-reader, tablet, or home theater system.
Dave Limp, Vice President, Amazon Kindle
With Dolby Digital Plus, the Amazon Kindle Fire HD and HDX tablets offer a clear advantage over similar devices.
Amazon, the world’s largest online retailer, is a leader in the e-reader and tablet market with innovative devices like the Kindle Fire HD and HDX. Additionally, Amazon streams tens of thousands of titles to its customers through Amazon Instant Video, an online content provider of movies and television shows via mobile devices and home theater systems.
