Abstract: We present an equivalent form of the boundedness condition involved in the Sz.-Nagy general dilation theorem and, as a consequence, we prove a dilation theorem for a product of commuting dilatable operator functions on involution semigroups. Also we show that the Bram-Halmos criterion of subnormality can be directly deduced from the proposed boundedness condition.
