Dolby Atmos, which revolutionised sound experience in cinemas over the last two years, has now forayed into the home entertainment space with its latest technology.
Cinephiles can now experience "all-around sound" within the four walls of their living room.
At a sneak peak here recently, Dolby unveiled their home theatre AV receivers, which is already available in the market in the price range of Rs.50,000 to Rs.1,50,000 in the country.
Customers can walk in any Yamaha, Pioneer and Onkyo stores to buy Dolby Atmos-certified amplifier or AV receivers.
With Dolby Atmos At Home, people can set up their own "realistic entertainment experience" without having to upgrade their speakers, except when opting for greater performance or Blu-ray player with HDMI spec 1.4.
Typically, in Atmos for cinemas, speakers are attached to the ceiling for the best cinematic experience. But it isn't the same case with Atmos At Home.
Instead of placing speakers on the ceiling, Atmos home entertainment with its processing allows upward-firing drivers in regular stand-mounted speakers to bounce sound off the ceiling.
"Transformers: Age of Extinction" on Blu-ray will be the first title to be available in Atmos home entertainment.
