We are thrilled to relay some exciting news from our esteemed partner, Dolby. ICTA is a trade organization formed in 1971 and represents companies involved in cinema technology, including cinema equipment manufacturers, exhibitors, dealers, and service companies from around the world. At the convention, Dolby was announced as the winner of the “Teddy Award”. This award is presented by the active dealer membership of the ICTA to the manufacturer who most closely exemplifies the principals of providing great products and service to the industry.
Frank Tees, president of ICTA, presented the award saying:
“What sets them [Dolby] apart is not just their ingenuity but also their unwavering commitment to their products and the dealers who bring them to the world. They have embraced the spirit of partnership with the ICTA dealer membership, providing them with unparalleled service, up-to-date technical and sales information, and unwavering support to ensure the seamless integration and success of their products in theatres across the globe.”
Dolby was recognized this year in part due to our support of customers during the period of Covid. The Dolby Studio, along with a bi-weekly email blast and other online events were initiated in 2020 to help Dolby communicate when in-person meetings were not possible. It was a painful time for our industry, and the Dolby team agreed to be honest, transparent, and work hard to minimize the impact of the global shutdown. We have continued in this spirit and Dolby is grateful for this recognition from the ICTA and our partners throughout the world.
“We rely heavily on our dealer network to educate our cinema partners on the value of Dolby products and to promote our entire portfolio of products,” says Michael Archer, VP WW Cinema Products and Partner Management. “We cannot be successful if they are not successful.”
As a proud distributor and integrator for Dolby, we are very happy to hear of this well-deserved recognition. The award is a testament to Dolby’s commitment to innovation, quality, and unparalleled customer service. We congratulate Dolby on this outstanding achievement and look forward to a continued fruitful partnership. The shared vision of delivering unmatched cinematic experiences to our valued customers is what drives our collaboration. Here’s to many more years of shared success and groundbreaking innovations!
