Dolby Atmos Accolades
“Dolby Atmos provides the completely immersive sound experience that filmmakers like myself have long dreamed about.”—Peter Jackson, Film Director
“Dolby Atmos is fantastic from a sound quality position. We can now hear full-range surround speakers, meaning that when we pan from the front to surround, the sound does not change in quality. The overhead speakers give us the opportunity to place the theater patron really in the location.”—John Neill, Park Road Post Production
“Given the choice between a theater with Dolby Atmos and one without, we'll always choose the one with. . . .”—Ben Drawbaugh, Engadget
“The use of Dolby Atmos technology has so far been seen . . . as a boon for theaters trying to differentiate themselves from the traditional home theater.”—Clint DeBoer, Audioholics
