The Next Cinema Frontier: Sound
We have seen a lot of interest and excitement surrounding (no pun intended) the new Dolby Atmos and Barco Auro 11.1 3D Sound systems and for good reason. Reviews have been overall positive for the first 14 theaters to have Dolby Atmos in market for the premiere of Disney's Brave. As with all new technology, the level of excitement is equally met with question and uncertainty. Some of the questions we have been receiving:
What is the difference between Dolby Atmos and Barco Auro?
Is 11.1 surround sound different from pan-through array?
Are both systems compatible?
How much will it cost to upgrade my auditorium? Do I have to upgrade all at once? (hint: no)
Is 3D sound only for specific theaters? (hint: no)
