New app delivers cinematic surround sound to Nokia smartphones
"Getting full-length movies direct to Nokia smartphones with true 5.1
Dolby Digital Plus surround sound is a huge step forward for mobile
entertainment. We are delighted with the results from our close
collaboration with the
Nokia handsets able to use the Voddler service will include the Nokia 700, Nokia 701, Nokia 603, and the new Nokia 808 PureView smartphone, when the Belle Feature Pack 1 becomes available. The service is also available for the popular Nokia N9 handset. With the right Nokia smartphone, the consumer will be able to enjoy a truly immersive 5.1 personal surround sound movie experience streamed straight to their mobile device, anywhere.
"Nokia was the first mobile partner to incorporate Dolby Digital Plus
decoding in a smartphone, and this exciting new mobile movie-streaming
service from Voddler illustrates why we have been working so hard to
bring this technology to the mobile ecosystem," said
"With video-on-demand becoming increasingly popular in the connected home, this is the next step in making the mobile device a fully-fledged member of that connected home family. Consumers are increasingly appreciating the convenience of Dolby Digital Plus movies streamed on demand to the home, and the launch of the Voddler service is the first step to bringing the same benefit of streaming movies on demand to the mobile handset.''
All the Voddler-compatible Nokia smartphones will feature Dolby Digital Plus and Dolby Headphone technologies, to provide an outstanding personal surround sound experience over any headphones and create a more natural, engaging experience that the user can enjoy comfortably for longer—ideal for movie viewing.
