(July 14, 2000-)

Nickname: "Waterfall"

Trailer: On a black background, the words "This following film is presented in" fades in and fades out to black. A large amount of water is pouring over the screen in very little slow-motion as the Dolby Digital Surround EX logo fades in. Under that the words "The latest Development in surround sound technology" appear. The water pouring then fades to black with the Dolby sign still appearing over the black background as a small trademark byline appears under.

Variants:

  • One variant just has the Dolby Digital logo.
  • Another variant contains a different intro text card, this time stating: "Introducing the newest development in sound technology...". The final logo also has no text at the bottom.
  • This variant also is presented in a 2.35:1 ratio.

FX/SFX: The water pouring over the screen.

Music/Sounds: The sounds of puddles splashing, and chimes, similar to the "Raindrops" logo. Sound Design by Marco D'Ambrosio at MarcoCo; Mixed by David Parker at The Saul Zaentz Film Center.

Music/Sounds Variant: The "Introducing the newest development in sound technology..." variant has the music from the short version of the Dolby Digital "Rain" trailer.

Availability: Rare. It was mostly likely in theaters; it was first used on the theatrical release of X-Men. May have been seen on DVDs in the 2000's. Otherwise, it's extinct.

Editor's Note: A strange, but nonetheless, cool logo. The somewhat low quality and especially the cropped matte variant makes this logo seem outdated, however.

Additional Note: After this unique logo specifically for EX, the only times EX was promoted were for variations of the main Dolby Digital logo with the EX text added.
