MORE REAL IMMERSIVE SOUND
Everyone knows that for a perfect surround sound experience you need specific speakers for each channeled sound placed in the right position in a theatre. This necessity for meticulous configuration of speakers could be history with Dolby’s new Atmos system. Instead of channels (the 2.1, 5.1 and 7.1 types), Atmos enables “adaptive rendering to ensure that the playback experience is as close as possible to the creator’s original vision in any given environment, irrespective of the specific speaker configuration in the playback environment”. Capable of transmitting 128 simultaneous and lossless audio inputs (channels), and the ability to render from 5.1 all the way up to 64 discrete speaker feeds, Dolby Atmos has just heralded a new audio reality for theatre goers.
