The highly immersive Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos technologies are widely available in a varied range of products across home entertainment, offering consumers powerful and unique entertainment experiences.
Dolby Vision delivers a dramatically more dynamic visual experience — astonishing brightness, incomparable contrast and captivating colour, while Dolby Atmos frees sound from the restraints of predefined channels.
Dolby Atmos explained
Dolby Atmos has elevated sound as a creative tool. It reinvents surround sound, with sounds instead existing as individual entities that can be precisely placed and moved anywhere in your room’s three-dimensional space. Sound can even come from above the listener’s head.
Dolby Atmos provides a far more realistic and lifelike audio environment that’s much closer to what we experience in day-to-day life, immersing you in sound. It’s an incredibly versatile format with multiple possible speaker configurations and is available in a range of different guises in the home.
The Dolby Atmos speaker layout can suit almost any room environment, from a full home-theatre experience to soundbars, to the speakers inside your television, and headphones.
To ensure a wide adoption of Dolby Atmos among consumers, Dolby has democratised pricing and space. Dolby Atmos in soundbars and televisions can be implemented using two solutions.
The first is sound reflected down from the ceiling and off the walls. The second involves ‘virtualised’ audio height information that offers an immersive experience thanks to advanced engineering. No matter the shape and size of your living room, you can get a Dolby Atmos experience.
Dolby Vision enhanced images
Dolby Vision provides breathtaking brightness, contrast and colour. It achieves this stunning image quality through innovative high-dynamic range (HDR) and wide-colour-gamut imaging technologies. As a result, it makes every pixel better, enabling televisions to deliver images with much greater brightness while providing much deeper, more nuanced darks. It renders a fuller palette of rich new colours never seen before on any screen.
Dolby has worked hand-in-hand with the main stakeholders in the film and broadcast industry to develop the most efficient and agile workflows for Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision.
