Dolby Technologies has been making DVD drives for Microsoft OS but recently, at the conference in Dolby laboratory, the company announced that it will not produce DVD drives for Windows 8 OS anymore. This had an adverse impact on the Dolby Technologies’ market position. There was a fall of 18 percent shares the day the news broke out. After this announcement by Dolby Technologies, Microsoft is looking for another service provider. Microsoft is planning to make Windows 8 OS a historical Operating System by introducing new features in it. The company wants to bring revolution in the field of Information Technology with its new improvised Operating System.

Microsoft Corporation is looking for an official service provider for Dolby digital audio. Dolby officials had stated that Dolby Technologies will discontinue its support to Windows 8 despite the fact that majority of its licensing comes from the Microsoft OS.
