Home Theater: Dolby Atmos Multi-Channel Sound

Dolby Atmos Multi-Channel Sound

With Dolby Atmos, sound comes alive from all directions, including overhead, to fill the home theater with astonishing clarity, power, detail, and depth.Using an innovative object-based approach to sound, Dolby Atmos overcomes many of the limitations of traditional channel-based sound mixing and reproduction. Filmmakers can place a sound object – car horn, foot steps, airplane engine – where it is most natural in 3D space. The Dolby Atmos decoder then calculates which of the speakers within the home cinema set-up should be used to render a natural, immersive sound track.

 

Dolby Atmos delivers captivating, multidimensional sound that places and moves specific sounds anywhere in the room, including overhead, to bring entertainment alive all around the audience.

Since its introduction in the cinema in 2012, Dolby Atmos has been embraced by all the major Hollywood studios, seven Academy Award® winning directors, and 16 Academy Award-winning sound mixers, among others. Now, entertainment enthusiasts will be able to enjoy Dolby Atmos in their home theaters.
