That, is all on the Studio's.

And the payoff is never certain: Some observers contend that a generation has already been trained to be content with the small screen.

Some servers can do non-encrypted playback to an A/V projector, but it's just a ridiculously expensive media player if you don't have a cinema projector.

I have to imagine that there will be a formal announcement of titles in August or at the latest CEDIA. If not then, the natives will really start to get restless.

It already looks like some potential titles are out of the running this year, Godzilla and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 being two of them. Unless I am reading into it (which is possible), Warner Brothers and Sony may be Atmos hold outs.

I would think Fox and Disney would be among the first.

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

then with your four subwoofer's arrangement in your room you experience a more accurate/enriching depiction of the surround sound mix "realism" as you would in real life in a combat zone.

Your four subs are fed all the same LFE information plus all your main channels' bass redirected to them;
all summed up, but because you have two subs @ the rear/corners in your room (in addition to the two other front/corner ones), that rear explosion still has a proper impact on your senses.

In addition/alternative to that; some people will use four subwoofers near the four main/principal speaker channels (LF, LR, RS, LS) and with their respective bass comin' from them respective channels. And, a fifth sub dedicated for the LFE channel only (could be @ the rear center, a few feet or so from the back wall, behind the second row of seats) - And a big one @ that, with an 18" quality driver inside a quality enclosure with a quality parametric EQ.

Actually, nowadays all quality/performing subwoofers should come equipped with a quality parametric EQ in them (and DSP Phase correction).

____________

The Dolby Atmos CP850; it most likely has some stuff in it in that regard? ...Plus a choice of well tought-out crossovers with selection of slopes?

It is most interesting and captivating what Dolby Atmos with their overhead speakers, and all that it implicates on the new surround envelope that it will bring to all of us @ home.
...New bass management, new DSP algorithms (surround processing), crossovers, phase, etc.

Definitely. On both parts.

I will be going to CEDIA for the first time this year and my main draw is audio and anything Atmos related while I'm there. Then I'll get to the rest.

Hoping for something official by September.

Early adopters may buy a title for Atmos alone.
Other than that, I cannot think what is in it for the studios.

And while we're at it, just as a friendly administrative reminder, when you reference a post try not to link it with a hashmark ("#"). Doing so will create a hyperlink to the AVSForum "hashes" page instead of the reference you intended (thanks to the curse of social media hashtags, I guess). Also, remember that the number of posts per page is customizable (anywhere from 5 to 100), so it will only confuse the reader if you reference a page number. YW.
A simple answer to that is to use the post's unique ID number and the POST command [post]post ID number goes here[/post]. The post ID number is the number at the end of the url when you click the post number in the thread. In the example you just used it is 26053730, so putting that between the POST commands will take you directly to the post regardless of the Post Per Page setting.

I'll be at CEDIA too (I don't have far to travel)! It's all about the Atmos. I'm signed up for Dolby's 90 minute spiel on Friday. Maybe I'll see you there.

Dolby have already announced that content will be available when the hardware is launched this fall, with more to come in 2015.

Yup, even mentioned that Atmos would be available via streaming. Now it's just a question of naming titles.

But chi_guy went two more further: 1. Not typing the number post indicative sign or hashmark/hashtag sig (#) and 2. Not indicating the page # as it varies from one member to another. And that was the part very informative to me.

Plus, he gave me exactly the post number (which I searched but failed to find in vain) of Hugo's very informative review on Dolby Atmos home demo. ...Post number 2147 in this very thread right here, and which for me (30 posts per page) is @ page number 72.

The point is, if you use the post command and the unique ID, there is no need to give page numbers, post numbers, hashtags or anything else. The post's unique ID will always take the link-clicker to the right place.

It is my understanding that someone posted earlier that there was going to be an Atmos-related announcement August 11th. I don't remember which thread I read it in.

As I mentioned to Scott, it may be that Sony and Warner Brothers might not be playing ball this time around... at least for initial releases. Two of their summer Atmos mixed blockbusters have had their specs published already and they happen to list DTS Master Audio. On Spider-Man 2, Sony pulled a Gravity and released it with only a 5.1 track.

What kind of ---- are some of these guys pulling?

The only other thing I can think of is that some may be intending to release separate, limited or "special" edition Dolby Atmos discs apart from their normal lineup. :shrugs:

11th, 12th, 13th. Hopefully the announcements will cover hardware (technology) and software (movies).

Call me an optimist - key question is how Atmos will do up mixing are current formats. Hopefully someone attending a demo can ask to hear that. I believe FilmMixer has also send that Dolby has stated that up mixing performs well. It would be great to not be tempted to replace favorites like Private Ryan assuming a new Atmos mix was released for that film.

From my PC speakers too, as well from my laptop (internal/external speakers) with ACID Music Studio 9.0 or Sound Forge Audio Studio.
And I can manually mix the audio to my heart contentment. ...Just the way young pro audio lovers do.

Replacing the audio soundtrack mix of SPR? ...No, but improving upon it with Dolby Atmos YES.
