Don’t say anything. Just watch and listen!
Two things that come out of this clip and other material from experienced users:
- It’s nothing like anything ever before.
- The possibilities are endless as film production teams experiment with Dolby Atmos to create real environments.
Here’s something a sound junkie had to say as he heard an audio only clip in a preview for Dolby Atmos:
“The thunderstorm sounded great. There was a lot of detail, and gave a great sensation through the overhead channels. It truly felt like rain was hitting the roof; which is silly when you consider the fact that we were in a carefully designed, acoustically isolated, theater”
“…The transition truly was in the rear, well behind me, and incredibly smooth. It left me very impressed… At this point, I was more concerned with the system’s use in relation to the scene in the next examples. It’s highly probable it was still there, merely less present”
Dolby has announced last month that it will be making this immersive sound technology available to the consumer. More on this, here. Till then there’s Cinepax – the only cinema in Pakistan with Dolby Atmos Sound capability.
