Bring Your Movies to Life with Immersive Sound

Dolby Atmos®

What is Dolby Atmos?

Dolby Atmos® is a revolutionary new audio technology that transports you into extraordinary entertainment experiences.

Fills your room with captivating sound

    • Sound comes from all directions, including overhead, to fill the room with astonishing clarity, richness, detail, and depth.

Puts sounds into motion all around you

    • The specific sounds of people, music, and things move all around you in multidimensional space, so you feel like you are inside the action.

Delivers the full impact of the artist’s work

  • Artists have amazing new capabilities to tell their stories, accent their games, or perform their music to achieve the greatest expressive impact.

How does Dolby Atmos work?

Dolby Atmos is the first home theater system that is based not on channels but on audio objects. What is an audio object? Any sound heard in a movie scene—a child yelling, a helicopter taking off, a car horn blaring—is an audio object. Filmmakers using Dolby Atmos can decide exactly where those sounds should originate and precisely where they move as the scene develops.

Thinking about sound in this way eliminates many of the limitations of channel-based audio. In a channel-based system, filmmakers have to think about the speaker setup: Should this sound come from the left rear surrounds or the left side surrounds? With Dolby Atmos, filmmakers just have to think about the story: Where is that yelling child going to run? How will the helicopter move overhead after takeoff?

The Dolby Atmos system, whether in the cinema or the home theater, has the intelligence to determine what speakers to use to precisely recreate the child’s movement in the way the filmmakers intend. They can now precisely place and move sounds as independent objects in multidimensional space, including anywhere overhead, so you can hear them as you would naturally. reality to your listening experience. Dolby Atmos helps weave the audio story to match what’s happening on the screen.

DTS:X

What is DTS:X?

DTS:X is the next generation audio codec from DTS that leverages object-based audio to enable new audio experiences in immersion and interactivity.

DTS:X places sound where it would occur naturally in space, creating the most lifelike, multi-dimensional audio experience ever. Free from channel restrictions, sound can be placed and moved to where you would hear it in the real world. Because DTS:X doesn’t require any specific speaker layout, you can arrange your home theater system however you want it. With DTS:X you’re in control of your listening experience. That hard-to-hear line in a movie can be lifted out of the background sounds for a more personal entertainment experience.

Works With All DTS Content

DTS will playback all DTS formats including DTS Digital Surround and DTS-HD Master Audio. DTS:X bitstreams are backward-compatible with older DTS AVRs and sound great.

Object-Based Audio

An audio object is the combination of the waveform where captures the audio, and metadata which represents the spatial location in which the object should be heard. Audio objects free content from specific speaker layouts for optimal listening.

This means the same DTS:X content will sound great whether it’s rendered on stereo or a fully immersive surround sound system.

Immersive

DTS:X places sound where it would occur naturally in space, creating the most lifelike, multi-dimensional audio experience ever. Be prepared — this improved immersion and heightened realism makes horror movies scarier, comedies more laugh-out-loud, and car chase scenes even more real.

Interactive

You are in control of your listening experience. That hard- to-hear line in a movie can be improved at a touch — lift the dialogue out from the background sounds when you want clarity and experience a more personal entertainment experience.
