A defining characteristic of the Yoga C930 is its advanced Rotating Sound Bar and innovative hinge design. During the design process, Dolby and Lenovo worked together to develop this unique hinge to optimize the audio experience for this device. This will allow consumers to enjoy an immersive Dolby Atmos Speaker System experience in all of the Yoga C930’s laptop or tablet usage modes.

“Dolby pushes the boundaries of innovation, bringing new ways to enhance consumer experiences,” said Giles Baker, Senior Vice President, Consumer Entertainment Group, Dolby Laboratories. “The Yoga C930 with Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos Speaker System sets a new bar for entertainment on the go.”
