Dolby Atmos

What is Dolby Atmos?

"Dolby Atmos is a sound experience you can feel all around you" 

Dolby Atmos is an advanced audio technology developed by Dolby Laboratories that revolutionises the audio experience by introducing object-based audio. It was first introduced in cinemas in June 2012 with the release of the Disney-Pixar film Brave.    

Unlike traditional surround sound formats that use discrete audio channels, Dolby Atmos treats audio elements as individual objects that can be precisely placed and moved in a three-dimensional space, resulting in an unparalleled realistic and immersive experience. It allows sound to be positioned in any direction around the listener, including overhead, creating a more immersive and realistic audio environment. 

Dolby Atmos has revolutionised the world of entertainment by redefining the creation and enjoyment of audio, granting creators more power to supercharge the listening experience. 

How can I listen in Dolby Atmos? 

Your immersive experience begins once you’ve purchased your favourite show in Dolby Atmos from On Air. Next, you will need a Dolby Atmos compatible device. There are many TV sets, speakers, soundbars, home theatre systems and headphones that come with Dolby Atmos support, please see a list of supported devices here.
