Presentation

Overview

The web stands as a ubiquitous, pervasive platform with unmatched access for digital entertainment. As HTML5 fills the gaps between the flat, 2-dimensional experiences of old to bring flowing animations and immersive graphics, web-based audio has lagged behind until now. Using the first of what is expected to be several browser clients to support more engaging audio, HTML5 developers have the ability to deliver premium audio experiences directly to users — no helper applications or plugins needed.

Dolby Laboratories Evangelist, Titus Blair, will explain how HTML5 developers can take advantage of Dolby Audio in Windows 10 and access the gold standard in audio. Titus will also explain how the format brings efficiencies to web developers, enabling consistent high quality multi-channel audio playback across devices.
