The iconic sound company has been working with partners to develop the consumer electronics and the content to bring Atmos — a theater system that uses "objects" rather than channels to precisely place sound around a room — to home entertainment.

More than 100 titles have already been mixed for theatrical release in Atmos, including such recent hits as Guardians of the Galaxy and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, as well as Academy Award recipients such as Gravity and Life of Pi. While Dolby has not yet announced any Atmos titles for home entertainment, the company confirmed that it has developed authoring tools that would allow a studio to prepare an Atmos theatrical mix for the home, and it is talking with studio partners about offering titles starting this fall.

Initially, the home entertainment version of Atmos will be available through supported Blu-Ray players using Dolby’s TrueHD codec and supported OTT services using Dolby Digital Plus. TrueHD and Dolby Digital Plus are getting an upgrade to accommodate the home variation of the Atmos format.
"Height is an important part of Atmos, so we adapted that experience so that the consumer can get that in the living room or on a mobile device."

So can I assume in a couple of years "depth" will be an important part of the home theater experience and that your seat must be elevated 6 feet in the air :idea
