Whether you're working from the comforts of your home or from an actual office space, the one device that plays the most important role in ensuring seamless workflows is the right PC. Most of us end up spending several hours in a day working on a PC, but for many, the experience is not wholesome and all-encompassing. , Simply because they are not aware of the right steps to unlock the best sound and picture quality. Having the best audio and video capabilities in your device can elevate everything that you do use your PC- it could be attending video conference calls, listening to music or even while watching streaming video content during your downtime.
In this Week's Experience Dolby with Gadgets 360, let's talk about some things that you can do to unlock an unbelievable audio and video experience on your PC to fulfil your needs for different use cases and from wherever you are.
Cut out the noise
Due to the pandemic, many of us are still working remotely and there are times when the audio doesn't sound quite right. This can be challenging, especially when you're trying to participate in a virtual team meeting. If you can't get your voice to stand out, you're going to get lost in the crowd, so here's what you can do to cut out statements like: “we can't hear you”, “too much noise in the background”, “can you go to a quieter place?” Dolby Voice for PC is a technology that combines hardware and software tech to offer voice separation, far-field pickup, and dynamic noise suppression that can drastically improve your video conferencing experience.
There are a number of great laptops you can buy that support this technology already, and since they're top-end laptops in every sense, they will be great picks for your office or home. Two of such laptops that you can check out now are the ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 9, and the Yoga X1 Gen 6.
The perfect work and fun laptop
Of course, we'd be lying if we said that the only thing we are using our laptops is for work, as the top-of-the-line machine comes packed with the best processor and lots of RAM too. So, if you're using the laptop to watch your favourite streaming content too, then you should ensure that it also supports Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos for the immersive audio-visual experience.
Here's a tip to get that enhanced experience: You can watch Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos–enabled Netflix content on your Windows PC and can also access the same using the Safari browser on an Apple Mac device. At the same time, you can also watch AppleTV+ content in Dolby, on your Apple Mac device.
With Dolby Vision on PC, you get the best viewing experience with ultra-vivid picture quality, deep blacks, incredible brightness and colours that bring your entertainment to life. On the other hand, Dolby Atmos on the PC heightens this experience by producing breath-taking sound quality with enhanced richness, detail, and realism.
The Nokia Pure Book offers both Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos and is an option to consider in the mid-range segment. And if you have more to spend, the latest MacBook M1 should be on the top of your list.
All work, no play? Not really
Playing games is another big activity for many of us, and sometimes when you've got a little downtime, you don't want to actually get up and switch devices just to de-stress a little. At Dolby, we understand your need and have made sure that the PC should not be “all work” but has audio-video features that will increase your enjoyment of PC games in your free time.
By Downloading the Dolby Access app on your PC, you get to enjoy Dolby Atmos for video content and for gaming, which delivers the most realistic and lifelike audio the game has to offer. You get to experience games with audio that is a leap beyond surround sound and puts you right in the middle of the action with Dolby Atmos. And if you want to take the audio experience to the next level you can always go for Dolby Atmos-enabled headphones like the boAt's Immortal 1000D.
