Dolby Laboratories, Inc. announced that it has reached a milestone of more than 500 installed Dolby Atmos screens across India. From Indian multiplexes – including 16 all Dolby Atmos multiplexes – to independent and single screen exhibitors, Dolby Atmos screens are found in 143 cities and 22 states and Union Territories in collaboration with Carnival Cinemas, Cinepolis, Inox Cinemas, PVR Cinemas, SPI Cinemas and other independent exhibitors.
Embraced by Indian studios and content creators, there are 17 mixing facilities and more than 500 feature films released or announced to date in Dolby Atmos in Hindi, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Punjabi, Tamil and Telugu.
“Dolby celebrates this milestone with its cinema exhibitors, which are increasingly using Dolby technology to differentiate their cinema offerings and share Dolby’s vision to provide a premium experience for moviegoers,” said Doug Darrow, Senior Vice President, Cinema Business Group, Dolby Laboratories. “Dolby Atmos transports you into the story with breathtaking, moving audio that fills the cinema and flows all around you, offering viewers an incomparable and engaging viewing experience.”
Known to offer an immersive audio experience for cinema-goers, the Dolby Atmos audio platform revolutionizes the experience of sound in entertainment, delivering a more natural and realistic sound-field, transporting people into the story with a lifelike, sensory experience.
Unlike traditional channel-based sound systems like 5.1, 7.1 and 11.1 that require filmmakers to think about the number and location of speakers, Dolby Atmos allows them to simply designate where in the cinema space each sound should be placed or moved to make audiences experience the film as if they were within its world. Moviegoers can now experience cutting-edge audio at any Dolby Atmos screen near them.
