5 Fascinating Facts About Dolby Atmos, The Village of Indian Hill, Ohio

First introduced in cinemas in 2012, Dolby Atmos is a state-of-the-art surround sound system that’s currently transforming the home theater experience. The innovative format gives audio a hyper-realistic 3D effect, bringing in sounds from all areas around you, including from above. Thinking about upgrading your home entertainment system? Here are some interesting facts to get you excited about this revolutionary speaker system.

5 Exciting Facts About the Dolby Atmos Speaker System

1. It Gives New Meaning to the Term “Surround Sound”

One of the most groundbreaking features of Dolby Atmos is that it adds the dimension of height to your sound system. From rain and thunder to helicopters and space ships, you’ll hear all the overhead action as though it’s happening above you.

2. You Don’t Need a Speaker System on the Ceiling

While you’re certainly welcome to install overhead speakers in your home theater, it’s not a requirement to experience the system’s superior surround sound. Dolby Atmos works through forward-facing speakers that are upward-firing, which means they project sound up to the ceiling, simulating the effect of overhead speakers.

3. It Can Process Up to 128 Channels of Audio at Once

4. It’s Highly Compatible 

Don’t fret if you own media that’s not Dolby Atmos-enabled. The surround sound system works with discs and online content designed for conventional stereo or 5.1-/7.1-channel Dolby Digital. The same goes for speakers — while Dolby Atmos is equipped to work on up to 64 speakers (which is the configuration in most movie theaters), its innovative technology can scale sound data to produce object-based audio effects on less elaborate speaker setups.

5. It Works on Mobile Devices

The beauty of Dolby Atmos is that it can adapt to different devices, including smartphones, tablets, and headphones. While the audio may not sound quite as all-encompassing as it would in a home theater with 15 speakers, Dolby Atmos for mobile still provides an impressive multi-dimensional audio experience, with the added advantage of being portable.
