Triad Speakers has been Dolby Labs Home Atmos Speaker Development Partner from its beginning, a special relationship that continues today. Triad’s InRoom Atmos-Enabled Height Modules are a result of this collaboration. They are designed to mate with their Triad Bronze or Silver Home Theater speaker systems, but will work well with many other brands and models. (Be sure to correctly configure your Receiver or Pre-Processor for “Dolby Enabled” height speakers not “Ceiling” speakers.)
About Dolby Atmos and Sound Objects
To free filmmakers from the limitations of channel-based audio, Dolby created Atmos, a system that lets them position and move sounds in three dimensions – to faithfully recreate how we experience sound in the real world.
Dolby Atmos is based on the concept of sound objects. In a Dolby Atmos equipped cinema, the state-of-the-art in movie sound, every sound in a scene—a helicopter taking off, a bee buzzing—can be a separate sound object. Each of these sounds starts at a specific location in the scene; often they move. Filmmakers can sonically isolate each sound object in a scene, position it precisely where they want it, and make it appear to move exactly where and how they want. In the final sound mix, each sound object is combined with metadata—additional data that describes a number of parameters about it, including its location and movement.
