Apple hires Dolby Executive Vice President Mike

Mark Gurman, 9to5Mac:

Apple has recruited Dolby Executive Vice President Mike Rockwell to become an executive in its hardware division...

At Dolby, Rockwell was most recently in charge of the company’s Advanced Technology Group, where he led the “invention of new technology and incubation of new businesses,” according to an archive of Dolby’s executive profiles page. While Dolby is best-known for multichannel audio solutions, Rockwell was interestingly involved in Dolby Vision, a “state-of-the-art color display technology” designed to improve the color rendition and brightness of high-definition displays and capture tools, among other projects.
