The name Dolby Laboratories has long been associated with innovative and world-leading sound reproduction. Its latest creation, Atmos, has come at the perfect time to augment the unprecedented immersive experience of big screen 3D stereoscopic images. Since it was first installed in the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood for the release of Pixar’s Brave in 2012, Atmos technology has been embraced by leading film makers and rolled out in hundreds of cinemas out around the globe, launching movie soundtracks into the world of 3D. Gizmag recently attended a demonstration of the Dolby Atmos system to hear what all the fuss is about and speak to the experts about the impact the new technology is having on the way movies are made.
