THE HOBBIT: THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG
Blockbuster director Peter Jackson (The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies) uses Dolby technologies to take audiences along on each fantastic journey.
Dolby Atmos: Enhancing the Cinema Experience
Peter Jackson, director of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit films, recognizes how sound helps audiences put themselves in the movies.
"Sound is a very important part of the creative process. It's all about immersion. It's about creating the sense that you are there, you are experiencing it," Jackson says. "Any technical development like Dolby Atmos, alongside the various picture developments that are occurring with the image, anything that actually helps enhance that immersive experience and brings more people to the cinema, the better."
"Every single channel, every speaker has got different sounds," the director continues. "You can actually set the audience in the same environment as the characters in the film."
The next time you watch one of Jackson's films, take special notice of the role sound plays in your own experience. You'll find that it's not just what you see, but what you hear that puts you in the story.
In the cinema, at home, and on the go, Dolby Atmos transports you from an ordinary moment into an extraordinary experience with breathtaking sound that moves all around you.
