A few months back Figaro Media was fortunate enough to produce a marketing video for one of Dolby Lab’s lesser known products – the Dolby Pro Reference Monitor 4200.

  • Bob Wilson, Director of Engineering – The Post Group
  • Bill Feightner, CTO – EFILM Digital Laboratories
  • Lou Levinson, Senior Colorist – Laser Pacific

Now, what sets this monitor apart from any of the other run of the mill, color accurate monitors?  Here’s a video that hopefully answers that question:
