If you’re reading this, you’ll notice that the Dolby.io blog looks a little different. In fact, today, we unveiled an all new website featuring a substantially improved user experience, as well as important updates to product taxonomy, pricing, and documentation.
More functional and more beautiful
First, we introduced a new take on how colors are used on the website. We played with darker background colors and gradients composed of rich purples, blues, and pinks to pay homage to the dark mode aesthetic that our devs know and love, while staying true to the cinematic expression of the Dolby brand.
“In creating the new Dolby.io presence, we sought a visually-striking experience that embodies the Dolby brand, improves user experience and is a nod to our beloved developers. Our dark-mode design is purposefully paired with vibrant colors reflecting the code editing tools that programmers work with every day. New beautiful illustrations, icons, and bold gradients create a versatile design system that easily translates across the Dolby.io ecosystem.”Thomas Christiansen, Dolby.io Design Lead
Next, you may have noticed that the top navigation has changed. As part of the website improvements, we’ve made it easier for you to navigate the site to enable you to learn more about our products and get you to resources faster.
Different names, same great products
Additionally, the products that you know and love now have new names. For example, “Interactivity APIs” are now “Communications APIs” and “Media Processing APIs” are now “Media APIs.” Don’t worry, the naming updates do not impact product functionality. In fact, they’ve been updated based on what we’ve learned from you and our customers over the past year. To see the full list of naming changes, check out the Communications and Media release notes.
