Lab.gruppen has acquired the Lake trademarks and the exclusive rights for use of Dolby Lake Processor (DLP) technology for both Touring and Permanent Sound Reinforcement markets. The technology—currently referred to as “DLP technology” as used in the PLM Series—will, in the future, be called “Lake technology or Lake Processing.” The Dolby Lake Controller (DLC) PLM Edition software will be known as “Lake Controller software” as new versions of the software are expected to be compatible with both the stand-alone DLPsand the PLM Series products.
Specifically, this agreement allows Lab.gruppen to further develop the Lake Controller software and firmware and to use the Lake brand name and allied technologies in Lab.gruppen-branded and stand-alone products. Lab.gruppen has secured exclusive access to the source code and algorithms for these markets that are at the heart of the DLP and PLM, and this will allow the company to create further generations of the programs for use with existing Dolby Lake Processors and with the company’s PLM Series.
“Over the last few years, Lab.gruppen has been a trusted partner of Dolby and we have recognized their commitment to supporting the live sound industry,” comments John Carey, VP, worldwide sales, products and services at Dolby Laboratories. “As we pass the live sound torch to Lab.gruppen, we are confident that they will continue to innovate and evolve the technology and brand many have grown to love in this industry.”
