PSNE Editor Dave Robinson on Dolby Atmos
11th December '12
Dave Robinson, editor of Pro Sound News Europe, takes the opportunity in his email leader to comment on his recent visit to Dolby's screening room in London, specifically the new Dolby Atmos format audio system utilising JBL speakers and Crown amplification.
- "Not only does the film [Yann Martel's Life of Pi] look sumptuous – you're telling me that wasn't a real tiger? – but the new Dolby ATMOS system in the HQ is superb. JBL speakers arranged in a 'hemisphere' above and around the seating immerse the viewer in sound. I thought I'd been hit by a flying fish in one particularly effective 3D/audio sequence. I suggest you make an unexpected journey to an ATMOS-equipped cinema at your first opportunity, my precious."
