What is Dolby Atmos?

 

A new dimension in game audio

Dolby Atmos allows you to immerse players by placing and moving individual sounds all around them, even overhead, with pinpoint precision and realism. By using object-based spatial audio instead of channels, Dolby Atmos opens up new creative possibilities to transport your players into your game, heighten their experience, and trigger their reactions.

How does Dolby Atmos work?

By working with console manufacturers, content creation software partners, and consumer electronics manufacturers, Dolby creates an end-to-end ecosystem that allows you to elevate your players' experiences and ensure that they experience the game just the way you intended it to be heard.

One mix for however they play

For any player, any setup, any budget, there's a way to play in Dolby Atmos. Dolby Atmos metadata allows TVs, soundbars, home theater systems, and laptops enabled with Dolby Atmos to render your mix to their unique speaker layouts, so each player gets an experience that's consistent with what you created in the studio — and with Dolby Atmos for Headphones, anyone can get that same hyper-realistic, fully immersive experience on any pair of headphones.
