So what: Dolby Laboratories, a company specializing in audio, imaging, and voice technologies, reported revenue and non-GAAP EPS of $274 million and $0.82, respectively. These figures were higher than a consensus analyst estimate for $264 million and $0.61, respectively.

"It was a solid quarter and we gained momentum in mobile with the inclusion of Dolby Audio in iOS," said Dolby Laboratories CEO Kevin Yeaman in the company's second-quarter earnings release. "We've also expanded the number of Dolby Vision TVs in market and the amount of Dolby Vision content, while continuing to roll out Dolby Cinema locations around the world."

Now what: The company's guidance was just as surprising. Analysts expected Dolby's fiscal third-quarter revenue and non-GAAP EPS would be about $254 million and $0.40, but management forecasted third-quarter revenue and non-GAAP EPS in ranges of $260 million to $275 million and $0.62 to $0.68, respectively.
