Dolby Atmos is an immersive audio format for music and audio visual content that delivers a spectacular experience and amazing sound quality to listeners at home, in cinemas, nightclubs and on-the-go. Because it is object based, Atmos empowers creators to precisely position and move discrete audio elements in a 3D sound field, which is not possible in channel-based surround formats (5.1, etc.). Additionally, because Atmos is not dependent upon a set number or configuration of speakers, it can maintain creative intent across a wide variety of environments and listening endpoints.
