I’ve just across a document I’ve not seen before that might have also passed you by. ‘Surround Sound, Past, Present and Future; a history of multichannel audio, from mag stripe to Dolby Digital’ is a handy 4-pager from Dolby.

It begins with a brief section on the origins of surround sound, then moves onto home stereo and quadraphonic sound, Dolby and film sound and the video revolution, including the arrival of stereo audio and then surround sound for home video, before moving onto Dolby’s role in the development of surround: Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital in the home, multi-channel audio for music.
