HBO and Dolby Laboratories hosted the Britney Spears: Live From Las Vegas concert event, held on November 18, which was broadcast in Dolby Digital 5.1 — the first live concert to be offered in surround.

“The Britney Spears concert encompassed an entire venue — not just what was seen onstage — and Dolby Digital 5.1 brought the full experience into the living room,” said Bill Chase, VP of East Coast production for HBO. “The sound quality delivered a realistic concert event that HBO subscribers enjoyed in the privacy of their own home.”

Dolby provided HBO with the DP570 multichannel audio tool, DP5571 Dolby E Encoder, DP572 Dolby E Decoder and DP563 Dolby Surround Encoder. Dolby engineers were also on-hand during the broadcast providing technical assistance.
