Dolby, Director Automotive
Andreas Ehret has been active as a technology leader in the audio industry for over two decades. He joined Dolby back in 2007 and since then served the company in various engineering and technology VP leadership roles, managing the teams that created solutions scaling into billions of consumer devices.
Over the past couple of years his focus had been on the market introduction of Dolby’s next generation audio codec AC-4, as well as contributions to bring the Atmos music experience to life. These days Andreas’ focus is on developing and expanding Dolby’s Automotive business – whereas lighting up Dolby Atmos in cars is a key strategic ingredient thereof.
Andreas is a strong believer in concepts such as use-case driven exploration, lean principles, rapid prototyping, collaboration with the industry, maintaining artistic intent, and validating consumer value.
ELAC, Vice President Engineering
Andrew Jones – His near lifelong passion for audio began in his early teens and quickly became focused on loudspeakers.
This led him to study Physics with a special interest in acoustics for his undergrad, followed by six years of postgraduate research in the fields of crossover design and active noise
Subsequently he joined KEF, initially in the research department looking into such things as measurement
techniques and improved prediction of performance from impedance measurements (with the help of Dr. Small). He subsequently became Chief Engineer and worked extensively with concentric driver technology. After 11 years he moved to the USA, at the invitation of Floyd Toole, to work for Infinity. Almost 4 years later he joined Pioneer and TAD where he remained for 17 years. For the last 4 years he has been the VP of Engineering at ELAC.
