Dolby’s new Atmos 62.2 surround sound format may not make it to home theaters soon, but the technology is ‘sound.’

If you ask for “a system just like in the movie theaters” you better have deep pockets with the launch of Dolby Lab’s new Atmos surround sound system for movie theaters.

The system, which is debuting with the new Pixar flick “Brave,” offers a 62.2 surround sound format that includes developments such as pan-through array and overhead speakers.

While the 62.2 format will likely never make it into home theaters, we as integrators are keeping informed.

To date, 14 theaters are equipped with the system.
