Home Theater Technology: Dolby Atmos

 home theater technology


Home theater technology developers are constantly trying to upgrade and improve the equipment they produce in order to give home owners a better overall experience. In order to improve this experience, there are two main areas that home theater technology developers can focus on: audio and video. Video is usually the more commonly focused on home theater aspect when it comes to new technology, but audio equipment is just as, if not more so, important in enhancing the experience for home theater owners. One of the newest forms of home theater audio technology that is getting rave reviews is Dolby Atmos. Here is a look at what Dolby Atmos is and how it can enhance your home theater experience!


What is it?

Dolby Atmos is one of the newest forms of home theater technology that allows consumers to enrich the audio experience involved with their theater. This new multidimensional sound system focuses more on audio objects rather than audio channels. Dolby Atmos was made with the intent to allow all the various objects in a movie to be able to have their own sound. Not only do these objects have their own sound, but this sound protrudes through the speakers at different angles depending on where the sound is coming from in the movie. This will allow movie producers the flexibility of creating more engaging movies from an audio aspect. Dolby Atmos is not only for home theaters, however, as more and more public theaters are adapting with this sound system.


How will it enhance my home theater experience?

Everything that Dolby Atmos does is with the intent to enhance the consumer experience. The main thing that Dolby Atmos does to enhance home theater experience is allowing sounds to come from many different angles. For example, with a normal home theater sound system, if there is a scene in the movie that you are watching where a plane flies over head, then you will be able to hear the plane, but the sound of the plane will simply be there and not follow its movement. With Dolby Atmos, the sound associated with the plane follows the plane. If the plane in the movie starts from behind you and flies in front of you on the screen, you will be able to hear the sound of the plane move with it simultaneously. In other words, Dolby Atmos gives all the objects in the movie their own audio capabilities to give the viewer a greater sense of actually being in the movie; think 3D, but the audio style.


As home theater technology improves, there are more and more pieces of equipment that can provide home theater owners with a better experience. If you are looking for a top-notch home theater audio experience, Dolby Atmos is worth taking a look at.
