Dolby Laboratories has hired Doug Darrow to be SVP of the company’s cinema business, charged with developing and executing strategies to build Dolby’s leading cinema technology platforms. Darrow spent 24 years at Texas Instruments, where he most recently oversaw the development and marketing of DLP Cinema. There, he helped spearhead the exhibition industry’s transition to digital presentation and distribution with the deployment of digital cinema projectors and 3D d-cinema presentation, including on the first d-cinema release of Star Wars: Episode I — The Phantom Menace. He most recently was president and CEO of start-up Laser Light Engines, which is developing laser-illumination systems for high-brightness projectors. “Doug is a strong leader with a distinguished track record, and his broad experience makes him uniquely suited to realize the full potential of Dolby’s cinema business,” said Dolby EVP Sales and Marketing Ramzi Haidamus, to whom Darrow will report. “His vision supported the growth and adoption of digital cinema, one of the industry’s most important and successful transitions.”
