The Dolby Atmos Cinema Processor CP850 line offers you a choice of advanced digital cinema audio solutions to fit your business model.
The Dolby® CP850 brings Dolby Atmos® playback to your digital cinema.
Whether you're ready to equip your cinema for an immersive Dolby Atmos® audio experience now or prefer a flexible processor that you can upgrade in the future to deliver a full Dolby Atmos experience, we have a Dolby® CP850 processor that's ideal for your needs.
Dolby Atmos provides a unique approach to cinema audio, giving filmmakers unprecedented power and freedom to realize their creative visions. In your cinema, Dolby Atmos gives audiences moving audio that flows all around them, a natural and enveloping sound experience that fully reflects the original artistic concept.
With more than 900 screens* and 230 titles, Dolby Atmos is transforming the world of motion pictures.
The Dolby Atmos Cinema Processor CP850 is the complete audio solution for today's digital cinemas.
The Dolby Atmos Cinema Processor CP850 optimizes playback for all content types, even in acoustically challenging environments. It uses the latest Dolby Lake equalization and 1/12th octave equalization resolution via Dolby Atmos Designer AutoEQ.

Dolby Atmos represents the future of cinema audio, but we recognize that equipping a cinema for a fully immersive Dolby Atmos experience may not be practical for every situation today. For that reason, we now offer the Dolby Atmos Cinema Processor CP850 Base as well as the Dolby Atmos Cinema Processor CP850.
The Dolby Atmos Cinema Processor CP850 Base will play back Dolby Surround 7.1 and 5.1 formats, as well as Dolby Atmos to a 7.1 configuration. It includes the same advanced equalization and other audio features as the Dolby Atmos Cinema Processor CP850, so you can ensure that your cinema is ready for the future while adding a number of sound improvements now. As with the full Dolby Atmos Cinema Processor CP850, these features include:
The Dolby Atmos Cinema Processor CP850 Base recognizes the Dolby Atmos bitstream and will read and render it to 7.1.
Each Dolby Atmos Cinema Processor CP850 includes the Dolby Commissioning Service: a complimentary review of the speaker configuration design and an initial room equalization. Our Content Services consultants will review your design drawings and equipment selection to ensure that your theatre delivers the highest-quality experience possible.
This service is available only for the Dolby Atmos Cinema Processor CP850, or when you upgrade the functionality of your Dolby Atmos Cinema Processor CP850 Base.
The Dolby Atmos Interface DAC3201 allows you to use legacy amplifiers in Dolby Atmos installations. The DAC3201 employs an audio-over-Ethernet protocol to receive the digital audio stream from the Dolby CP850. It then converts the digital audio to analog audio for connection to amplifiers. Each DAC3201 supports up to 32 analog outputs.
A Dolby CP850 cinema processor together with a single DAC3201 can support up to 48 speaker feeds. Installations with more than 48 output channels will need two DAC3201 units.
Dolby Atmos represents a dynamic shift in audio, reinventing traditional surround sound methodology.
A feature-rich user interface makes configuration easy. Program macros ensure correct playback of a variety of source materials and allow remote monitoring of the Dolby CP850's functional health.
