The complete audio solution for your digital cinema, the Dolby CP850 supports Dolby Atmos, Dolby Surround 7.1 and 5.1 formats, and the Dolby consumer codecs commonly used for alternative content.
The Dolby CP850 brings Dolby Atmos playback to your digital cinema.
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 a natural and enveloping sound experience that fully reflects the original artistic intent.
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.
The Dolby Atmos Interface DAC3201 allows you to use legacy amplifiers in Dolby Atmos installations. The DAC3201 employs Dolby Atmos Connect, an audio-over-Ethernet protocol, to receive the Dolby Atmos stream from the CP850. It then converts the stream 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 output channels. 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.
