WASHINGTON, Oct. 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The ‘Ray Dolby Gateway to American Culture’ opened Thursday night, honoring the late Dolby Laboratories founder for his innovations and global contributions to the way the world experiences audio and video entertainment.
The exhibit, ‘America’s Listening,’ focuses on the public’s experience with recorded sound and includes five of the innovations that kept them listening: Thomas Edison’s phonograph, Alexander Graham Bell’s graphophone, Emile Berliner’s gramophone, Ray Dolby’s noise reduction system, and Apple’s iPod.
The Ray Dolby Gateway to American Culture, located on the third floor of the National Museum of American History at the Smithsonian, is a precursor to a larger installation called “Entertaining America” that is slated to debut in 2020.
