Dolby 5.1 – 7.1 – 3D Atmos Sound

D2 partners with Dolby & QSC to deliver superior cinema sound.

A Revolutionary Approach to Sound. The most significant development in audio since the arrival of surround sound is here. Dolby® Atmos™ delivers audiences a more natural and realistic soundfield, transporting them into the story with a lifelike sensory experience. Developed with input from professionals throughout the movie industry, Dolby Atmos represents a dynamic shift in audio, reinventing the traditional surround sound methodology and offering a complete platform for sound now and well into the future.

Benefits of Dolby Atmos

  • Delivers a powerful and dramatic new listening experience in the theatre
  • Allows sounds to move around the theatre to create dynamic effects
  • Reproduces a natural and lifelike audio experience that perfectly matches the story
  • Adds overhead speakers for the most realistic effects you’ve ever heard
  • Reflects the artist’s original intent, regardless of theatre setup
  • Employs up to 64 speakers to heighten the realism and impact of every scene

Dolby Atmos Technical Information

  • Creates clearer, more accurately positioned sound; uses object-oriented mixing to layer independent sound elements over channel-based audio content
  • Captures all the director’s intent as descriptive metadata to provide customized playback for each theatre
  • Automatically generates optimum soundtracks for theatres with 5.1- and 7.1-channel setups
  • Delivers a rich, realistic sound experience through support for up to 128 simultaneous and lossless audio elements in a mix
  • Scales easily to any size theatre, with up to 64 independent speaker outputs

Technical Design

Dolby Atmos uses an innovative layered approach to building a soundtrack. A base layer consists largely of static ambient sounds, which are mixed using the familiar channel-based method. Layered on top of these are dynamic audio elements that can be positioned and moved precisely to correspond to the images onscreen.

Metadata within Dolby Atmos records how these elements should behave during playback—behavior that best matches the director’s intent, regardless of theatre configuration. This dual-layer approach gives film creators greater power and freedom while ensuring you a consistent experience in any theatre.

Dolby released the CP850 sound processor to support its Atmos 3D sound solution.
