The Dolby Institute

The Dolby Institute helps creatives advance the art
of storytelling

Our mission: to educate
and empower

We created The Dolby Institute to educate, inspire, and empower the next generation of
content creators.

We want creatives to think critically and creatively about sound and image from the start of their process and unlock the power of technology to help them tell their stories.

The Dolby Institute showcases how the world’s leading content creators use technology to tell engaging, spectacular stories through our podcast series and artist profiles. We develop training tools for education partners. And we provide direct artist support through partners like the Sundance Institute and SF FILM, among others, offering access to advanced sound and image technologies.

Whether you’re making a film, mixing sound for a sporting event, creating music, or designing the next-generation gaming experience, the Dolby Institute is here to support you.
