Dolby Labs was founded by Ray Dolby (1933–2013) in London, United Kingdom, in 1965. In the same year, he invented the Dolby Noise Reduction System, a form of audio signal processing for reducing the background hissing sound on audio tape recordings.

Dolby also sought to improve film sound and the first film with Dolby sound was A Clockwork Orange in 1971. In 1975, Dolby released Dolby Stereo, which included a noise reduction system in addition to more audio channels.
