5.1-channel surround sound is so 2013. Dolby Atmos is coming to Australian cinemas, but soon enough you’ll be able to get it in your living room as well. Later this month, Onkyo will be the first company with home theatre equipment that works with new Dolby Atmos surround speakers.


How Dolby Vision Works, And How It Could Revolutionise TVs Forever

Dolby's Crazy Atmos Surround Sound Comes To Your Living Room

More than two years ago, Dolby trotted out Atmos, the most advanced surround sound system in history.

The Sound Of Gravity: Total Realism

Gravity is a stunner of a movie in large measure because of what it doesn’t do — it’s restrained and elegant in the way that most big space epics aren’t. Here’s a great behind-the-scenes look at how the film makes the vacuum of space sound terrifying — even at times when sound is impossible.


Ray Dolby, Innovator Of Cinema Sound, Has Died

Dolby Atmos: The Incredible Prototype Cinema Behind Future Movie Sound

Tucked in a corner of Soho Square, cosied up against ad agencies and seemingly every media firm in London, is the London HQ of Dolby, who you may remember from the title credits of just about every film ever.
