the decision made by the firm from across the atlantic has much to do with last year's purchase of the promising catalan start up: imm sound. this small firm specialised in developing 3-d sound for cinemas and caught dolby's eye. the company made a move and tookover the local business in order to further its grip on the latest audio technology being developed by imm, becoming dolby atmos. now the head office has decided to go the whole way in confiding in barcelona, opening its r+d centre, in the 22@ high tech area, where they aim to develop new cinema technologies.
