DOLBY ATMOS

Dolby Atmos challenges traditional channel-based audio by freeing sound from the restraints of predefined channels. In doing so, it has elevated sound as a creative tool so that it is now on par with the visuals. Sounds exist as individual entities that can be precisely placed and moved anywhere in your room’s three-dimensional space – even, above the listener’s head. This provides a far more realistic and lifelike audio environment much closer to what we experience in day-to-day life, immersing you in sound.

KEY BENEFITS

  • Sound flows all around you, even overhead
  • Astonishing clarity
  • Crisp dialogue
  • True-to-life detail
  • Richness and depth
  • Positions individual sounds in a 3D space

DOLBY VISION

Dolby Vision delivers a dramatically more dynamic visual experience — astonishing brightness, incomparable contrast, and captivating colour. It achieves this stunning image quality through innovative high-dynamic range (HDR) and wide colour gamut imaging technologies. As a result, it makes every pixel better, enabling televisions to deliver images with much greater brightness while providing much deeper, more nuanced darks. It renders a fuller palette of rich new colours never seen before on any screen.

KEY BENEFITS

  • Astonishing brightness
  • Deep darks
  • Expanded contrast
  • Ultravivid colours
  • Refined details
  • Enhanced dimensionality
  • Wider colour gamut
  • Biggest creative space, no limits on possibilities in HDR.
