TV series in Dolby Atmos
We all enjoy binging our favourite TV series. Whether you’ve had a long work week and just want to chill or are enjoying a long-running series with friends and family, watching a few (or several) episodes in a row is a common way to relax and unwind. Even if that means nodding off occasionally!
Luckily many of your favourite series are now available in the multidimensional sound of Dolby Atmos. It’s hard to doze off when you’re caught up in world-building audio, with sound effects, score, and dialogue positioned around your living room, transporting you right into the centre of the action.
Popular series in Dolby Atmos include House of the Dragon, Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, Ted Lasso, She Hulk: Attorney for Hire, Formula 1: Drive to Survive, and Stranger Things — to name just a few. You can find something just right for any mood: from comedy or horror to documentaries and action films.
Dolby Atmos is sound you can experience
Dolby Atmos allows you to pick up on details crafted by the sound creators working on your favourite series that you’d miss if listening in mono, stereo, or surround sound. The ability of creators forming audio in 3D space, placing you in a bubble of sound, transforms your home entertainment. You’ll see — or more accurately, hear — what we mean if you watch The Haunting of Hill House in Dolby Atmos. The experience gives you access to some of the most cutting-edge explorations in sound design by the brightest minds, all from the comfort of your sofa. “The separation of sound, through whatever is happening at any given moment, is unparalleled,” said the Haunting’s supervising sound editor, Trevor Gates in a recent interview. The shock factor in horror is just one example of a genre set to be redefined by Dolby Atmos.
There are many ways to experience the spatial soundscape of Dolby Atmos. Many TV sets are enabled with Dolby Atmos and can deliver the experience right out of the box. You can also use a TV soundbar enabled with Dolby Atmos and listen as it places and moves sounds around the room. It’s simple to set up too, just read up on how with our guide. You can also watch your favourite series on a phone, tablet, or computer enabled with Dolby Atmos, using the device’s speakers or, in many cases, headphones. And, if you’re really into movies, there are full, multi-speaker configurations that will bring you as close to a full cinema experience as possible. Dolby Atmos gives you the choice of how you want to experience crisp, clean sound you can hear from every angle.
So, choose your device, your platform, or Blu-ray box set, and sit back and enjoy.
