Dolby Atmos Renderer

Dolby Atmos Renderer

The Dolby Atmos Renderer is the central element of any Dolby Atmos mixing system. In tandem with your favorite DAW, it generates the positional metadata that allows for the accurate spatial reproduction of an audio mix in any playback environment.
It renders up to 128 inputs (including audio beds and objects with metadata) to your monitoring configuration, as well as rendering to standard channel-based layouts for both monitoring and deliverable creation. It also creates the Dolby Atmos master file, used for encoding for final distribution to streaming services or Blu-ray.
The Dolby Atmos Renderer is available in the Dolby Atmos Production Suite and the Dolby Atmos Mastering Suite.
