Auro3D has added objects via MDA...

So now, like Atmos, it is a hybrid channel + object format.

For our company, it was going to be prohibitively expensive to install Auro... in addition to lowering our current surrounds to add the height layer, the front height requirement would have involved redoing the entire front wall... which also meant lowering our main LCR..

You're right, Barco signed up to go with the DTS MDA object format. I should have clarified that Auro3D as a channel plus matrix post processing format is long in the tooth.

It may be that Auro is being withheld from the consumer market to go with DTS-UHD... since it seems to be DTS MDA in a consumer "disguise."

It will be interesting to see what DTS has up its sleeves.

Listen up, studios! Just say "NO" to DNR and EE!!

The whole point of Auro 3D from the inception is that they can wrap their 11.1/13.1 in a 5.1/7.1 payload that was always backwards compatible..

Not sure why it hasn't come to market up until now with Datasat....
