Dolby Atmos

Dolby Laborities Inc have released their new audio platform that will rolled out over the next year. Initially launching in the cinema, Dolby Atmos heralds a move away from speaker based encoding, to a directionally based encoder – described by Dolby as ‘objects’.

Similar to the Ambisonic technique, Atmos has the ability to transmit up to 128 channels with rendering capibilities from 5.1 to anything above.

Until I’ve heard and used it I’ll reserve judgement but the official release can be found here.
