Ioan Allen, Dolby Laboratories - San Francisco, CA, USA

See and hear actual historical film footage demonstrating the evolution of 35-mm stereo optical film soundtracks, from the first experimental recordings made by Alan Blumlein in 1934 through to today's digital soundtracks. The steady progress in technical performance will be described by Ioan Allen, Senior Vice President of Dolby Laboratories, who spearheaded the introduction of many breakthrough film audio formats. The improvements in film soundtracks have been paralleled by power amplifier, equalizer, and loudspeaker development, which he will also describe. Refreshments will be served. Doors open at 8:15. Seating limited to 245 attendees.
