Markus.. you know you have a tendency to rub me the wrong way with some of your posts... but it bears repeating..
Atmos is a hybrid channel and object based format... 7.1 "traditional" channels with the addition of two overhead arrays, supported by 118 object playable through up to 62 discrete outputs, plus full range surrounds and overheads, bass management, real time object renders, auto eq support, fairly predicable backwards compatibility, etc..
If you want to categorize it as "channel based" go ahead.. I think from your posts' tone over the last two years you've disparaged Dolby since they introduced the format.. let it go... we all know what it is...
- "the faculty or activity of imagining things, especially things that are impossible or improbable."
Imagination is a good thing.. many truly useful things in the world has come from such.
Impossible or improbable? No, but I don't know what Dolby has planned and neither do you. CEDIA should reveal many details.
- "imagine the occurrence of; fantasize about."
What his fantasies may or may not be aren't for me to comment on..
It's no more a fantasy than your suggestion the other day that we should replace all of our speakers with omni directional ones and get rid of all the acoustic treatments in our studios...
He's allowed to fantasize... so are you.
Is it imminent? I don't believe so, but that is pure speculation on my part.
