Dolby Atmos technology was introduced to the world in 2012. This technology is a system in which sound objects can be precisely placed and moved in three-dimensional space, including the area above the viewer’s head. She, as it were, enlivens what is happening on the screen and creates a surprisingly powerful, rich sound, providing the effect of complete immersion.
Does Netflix have Dolby Atmos
Netflix video service also got support for Dolby Atmos to surround sound format.
The Netflix service focused on the original content: Dolby Atmos sound has already been equipped with such platform projects as Death Note, Blame! and Brightness, which will be released this year. It is the original content that is not available in other sources that support these streaming services afloat in the long run. And Netflix will provide an opportunity to evaluate films that are not shown in movie theaters, with almost cinema sound.
Guaranteed access to movies with sound in Dolby Atmos is available to owners of the Xbox One S set-top box connected to an audio system that supports Dolby Atmos 3D.
Is Dolby Atmos only on 4k
In the home version, there are some difficulties with the Dolby Atmos format at home. Despite the fact that Dolby makes no difference when branding the Atmos format for home and commercial cinema, there is a difference, and it is very significant. The main work on forming the correct surround sound in the Atmos format lies with the sound processor, which should in real-time, receiving only files with sounds and spatio-temporal coordinates, calculate in real-time a rather large stream of data and output it to those acoustic channels that are at his disposal – naturally, given how many of them are in a particular installation. Currently, Atmos specifications for home use suggest using speaker configurations from 5.1.2 to 9.1.4.
At the moment, Dolby Atmos looks a little dank, but the situation is changing. This technology support is announced in mass models of the best Dolby Atmos receiver manufacturers such as Yamaha, Pioneer, Onkyo, and Denon, and therefore Dolby Atmos video is available in both Full HD and 4K.
Can you stream Dolby Atmos
Dolby Atmos is not sound, but sound information. This same information is transmitted over existing surround formats. To date, Dolby Atmos data is only compatible with two surrounding standards: Dolby TrueHD and Dolby Digital Plus.
The Dolby TrueHD format does not imply compression and requires a wide bandwidth. TrueHD is now available on Blu-ray discs, and you can only transmit such sound through an HDMI 2.1 wire.
Dolby Digital Plus uses compression. This format is adapted for streaming services and for some other tasks like BD Live online technology. Dolby Digital Plus is currently supported by a large number of devices, including laptops, tablets, smartphones, consoles such as Apple TV and Roku.
