UCN adopts Dolby for its set-top box technology

Maharashtra multi-system operator (MSO) UCN is to provide its customers with 7.1 channels of surround sound after choosing Dolby Digital Plus as the audio codec for its high definition (HD) set-top boxes.

"With the onset of the digitisation in India, the broadcast industry is evolving with a promise to deliver enhanced quality services to the end consumer. This association with Dolby is an excellent opportunity for us to combine a great HD picture with superior Dolby surround sound. We have always aimed to deliver the best cinematic entertainment experiences for our subscribers," said Ajay Khamankar, director, UCN.

Dolby surround sound will be effective for UCN cable subscribers with a home theatre, which must be connected to the HD set-top box and HD television set. The MSO offers a bouquet of HDTV channels including the STAR HD network, Colors HD, Movies Now HD, Discovery HD and NGC HD.

Pankaj Kedia, country manager, Dolby Laboratories India, said: "Our collaboration with UCN marks an important milestone in the adoption of Dolby Digital Plus in India's cable TV services, which is undergoing a massive transformation with the ongoing digitisation.

"With Dolby Digital Plus, UCN will bring an exceptional entertainment experience to their consumers – from sports, drama, reality TV, and movies – right into their living rooms."
