You don’t need to be an audiophile to have heard about Dolby Atmos. I’m sure you already heard it or read about it somewhere, from the movie theaters or on the internet. So, what is Atmos by Dolby?
“Dolby Atmos adds overhead sound to the mix. Atmos is an innovative sound format that uses Dolby‐enabled upward‐firing speakers or in‐ceiling speakers to project sound from above your seats. Audio video receivers with Dolby Atmos capabilities can create an immersive listening experience by placing sounds in more precise locations in the room than previous setups.”
And according to Dolby, Dolby Atmos is, “the most significant development in cinema audio since surround‐sound.”
Dolby Atmos technology was originally developed in 2012. It goes beyond the 5.1 and 7.1 surround‐sound technology with Atmos‐enabled speakers placed in precise locations around the room for that immersive sound and listening experience. Atmos speakers can be placed on the walls, in the ceiling or behind the screen. You can use up to 64 speakers to set up your Dolby Atmos Cinema.
