What is Dolby Atmos?


Dolby Atmos is a next-generation audio format that delivers moving and immersive audio: “sound that can be precisely placed and moved anywhere in three-dimensional space, including overhead.” Atmos is backwards compatible with Dolby TrueHD 7.1 on home audio/theater systems that don’t support Atmos.

Other qualities of the format include:

  • Sound that is not constrained to channels and so can move all around you
  • A new overhead dimension that creates a full audio atmosphere and realistically depicts objects moving overhead
  • Everything from dialogue, quiet, and loud action scenes have clarity, richness, detail, and depth in sound quality

The format is featured on several Blu-ray Discs including Terminator Genisys, Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation, Unbroken, and Game of Thrones Seasons 1 and 2 on Blu-ray, among other titles.

And, Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015) will be shown in Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision at supporting theaters.
