The next highly anticipated occasion for movies will be the Oscars. The Dolby Theatre, formerly known as the Kodak Theatre, is ready for its first Oscars. The Academy Awards will be broadcast from the Dolby Theatre for the first time since the audio-visual technology company plastered its name and logo on the awards venue last summer.

While the 11 year old venue mostly looks the same as in years past, Dolby has diligently worked for the past seven months to ensure it will sound different on February 24th. In preparation for the star-studded ceremony, Dolby outfitted the theatre with all of its audiovisual gizmos and plans to update the space with new technologies.

One of Dolby’s main goals for the Oscars is to make sure that the entire show will be broadcast in Dolby surround 5.1, including every film clips and taped segments. The posh three thousand and four hundred seat theatre has served as the Oscars’ home since 2002. It will be the venue for the Oscars awarding ceremony until 2033.
