Video-on-demand service provider Voddler has announced the world’s first movie streaming service for smartphones using Dolby Digital Plus audio. It’s currently available for a number of Nokia Symbian devices and is initially being offered in Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland.
Dolby Digital Plus audio offers cinematic surround sound with Voddler’s streamed films.
Marcus Bäcklund, CEO of Voddler, said “Getting full-length movies direct to Nokia smartphones with true 5.1 Dolby Digital Plus surround sound is a huge step forward for mobile entertainment. We are delighted with the results from our close collaboration with the Dolby team. It adds a truly cinematic feel to enjoying the best Hollywood and European movies on your mobile device.”
Voddler has over one million registered customers in Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland.
