Dolby says that it has its Digital Plus audio enhancement client built into the Windows 7 operating system that Microsoft released last year. The client is found built in in the versions Windows 7 Home Premium, Windows 7 Professional, and Windows 7 Ultimate. If you are a computer geek and a big fan of music, you will know how important the plug in is for a Windows user. The plug in enhances the audio quality so much that if you plug in a good quality music system to your Windows machine and a projector to a big white screen, you do not need to go to a theater for movies.
But last year, when the smell of Windows 8 was free, Dolby gave a statement to the company’s share holders that the audio enhancement client of the company will not be present in the new version of Windows that is going to be released. Windows is, I can say, rude, about the things that it is going to put into its products.
For some reason, the Redmond operating system giant would have thought that having such a software built into the operating system which shipping it would somehow make its efforts in the audio department a bit meaningless. If Microsoft thought like this, then the thinking is meaningless.
But now, it looks like the company has changed its mind and want to get the Dolby Digital Plus audio enhancement plug in back in the operating system. In a surprising move today, Dolby announced to its share holders that their product, the Dolby Digital Plus plug in, will be featured in the Windows 8 distribution. You will be able to find Dolby Digital Plus in Windows 8, Windows 8 Professional, and Windows RT.
So if you are planning to buy one of these versions of the new operating system as soon as it gets released to the market, you are going to enjoy the music experience on it. To make it more worthwhile, I suggest you buy a nice pair of headphones or a nice speaker set with the PC, tablet, or any other device which is going to have one of these three versions of the operating system.
