What is Dolby Atmos?

An Introduction to the long awaited Dolby Atmos object oriented sound system...

Dolby Atmos delivers extreme surround sound

Many leading Hollywood movies, including recent Academy Award® winning films,

are presented in Dolby Atmos®, as this revolutionary sound technology allows

filmmakers unprecedented realism and creative freedom. With Dolby Atmos, content

creators can precisely place and move sounds almost anywhere, including overhead,

to create a multidimensional listening experience.

Dolby Atmos technology is now available for the home and will produce a

multidimensional listening experience never before experienced in a home theater.

And you’ll get a great immersive experience, no matter what kind of Dolby Atmos

home theater setup you have. Dolby Atmos content is mixed as audio objects instead

of traditional channels. This means the content is not tied to any specific playback

configuration. Further, the technology automatically adapts the object audio to take

full advantage of the number and placement of your speakers, from systems with

five speakers on the floor and two speakers producing overhead sound to a Dolby

Atmos system with as many as 24 speakers on the floor and 10 overhead speakers.

Additionally, a new Dolby surround upmixer allows for legacy channel-based content

that has not been mixed for Dolby Atmos to be expanded to fill the flexible speaker

layouts of a Dolby Atmos system.

These installation guidelines are intended to be a resource for integrating Dolby

Atmos into a home theater system and unlocking the potential of this revolutionary

audio format. Details include use of conventional overhead speakers and Dolby

Atmos enabled speaker technology, which enables you to architect a system capable

of reproducing overhead sound, even if you’re not able to put speakers in or on a

client’s ceiling.
