To produce sound quality televisions in Bangladesh Walton has now teamed up with Dolby Laboratories as a licensed manufacturer.

This makes Walton the first ever Bangladeshi television manufacturing company to become Dolby’s licensed manufacturer and can allow its partners to use advanced sound technologies, says a press release.

As a Bangladeshi television manufacturing company, only Walton became the official partner of Dolby Laboratories, an American based leading global company specializing in audio noise reduction and audio encoding or compression.

Walton authorities hoped that this partnership with Dolby would make the locally produced Walton television more acceptable in the global arena, the release added.

Earlier in January this year, a delegation team, led by Walton Television’s CEO Mostafa Nahid Hossain met with Dolby Laboratories’ senior director Vivian E Vassallo at Dolby’s head office at San Francisco in California, US, reports Dhaka Tribune.

In the meeting it was confirmed that Walton would be a licensed manufacturer of Dolby.

Mostafa Nahid Hossain said that Dolby considered a number of factors such as a setup of well-equipped research and development (R&D) centers, international standard television production line, significant market share in the local market, global market demands and other aspects while licensing and collaborating with an organization.

As a result, Walton will be able to use all of Dolby’s technologies, including Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, and Dolby Atoms, he also informed.

At present, there are 24 models of TVs in the market ranging from 610mm to 1.397m, including the 4K, full HD, HD resolution smart and non-smart LED TVs with prices range from Tk10,800 to Tk99,900 apiece.
