This is interesting. Inside Out was playing at the El Capitan in Dolby Vision HDR, but only in 2D. It seems the Dolby Vision projectors are not yet capable of HDR 3D.

I don't have the ability to install ceiling speakers (nor do I have an RS20i) - but if I were doing an Atmos/Auro dual setup I would simply use all 4 or 6 of the Atmos overheads as the Auro VOG using...

Even older movies were never mixed in 2.0 stereo, though. Go far enough back and everything is mono. Fast forward a bit, and you have either mono or different versions of multi-channel sound (3 or 5...

It is vanishingly rare for a movie to be mixed in straight-ahead 2.0 stereo with no matrix (and that would never happen today in a theatrical release). Much more common than that (still rare though)...

While Auro-3D was introduced to the public as a movie format, it is true that it was *developed* as a music format - or I should say, its development was the result of ongoing research in music...

That works, and likely will sound pretty good - but don't forget that part of what object-based mixing and playback does is pinpoint placement of sound objects. If you use a mini-DSP to turn one...

Isn't a moving target problematic for the whole idea of a "reference" level? I totally understand that if we played back a movie using the theatrical mix, at theatrical reference, we'd be blown out...

On a slight tangent - over the weekend I watched The Wind Rises from Studio Ghibli. There is an English dub in 5.1, but I wanted to watch the Japanese soundtrack. I was a little surprised to note...

If the Blu-Ray has a 5.1 soundtrack, whether PCM, DTS-HD Master Audio or Dolby TrueHD I just leave it at that. 7.1 gets down mixed to 5.1 in my AVR.

Most of the content I stream is in 5.1 and I...

I don't mind seeing Inside Out at the El Capitan, because the pre-show will likely be entertaining. Pretty bummed about not getting to see the HDR presentation for San Andreas though.

I am a slight demographic outlier, in that I am a "cord-never," at least since I moved to Los Angeles in 1999. Always living in areas with at least decent reception, I've lived on a diet of OTA...

Their hand was forced in this, as it is clear that SMPTE/DCI are converging on an object-based bitstream as the deliverable for DCPs. They are, however, retaining the Auro-3D speaker configuration...

I believe so, but I am fuzzy on the details. It does sound like the committee (and the studios, and the exhibitors) is eager to wrap up this process sooner rather than later.

To give credit where it's due, those effects are there because of the talents of the mixers, not anything DTS did. The sound would be the same if the 5.1 or 7.1 mix was on the Blu-Ray as uncompressed...
