Dolby and Real Image to set up nearly 50 Dolby Atmos screens in South Asia
Ever since Dolby Atmos was introduced, the new audio technology has piqued the interest of various people and it is becoming increasingly popular. The number of Dolby Atmos screens is quite less at the moment, but is constantly increasing. Real Image Media has announced that it will be buying at least 50 Dolby Atmos cinema processors and it plans to install them in the South East Asia region.
Dolby Atmos has become a popular trend among the filmmakers in Hollywood and in India, as nearly 70 Dolby Atmos titles have been already been announced. When the deal is complete, nearly more than a hundred theaters will be equipped with Dolby Atmos technology in India alone and that seems to be a clear indication of the market trend.
Dolby Atmos was first installed in California in the year 2012 for the premiere of Pixar’s Brave. Until the end of 2012, only 25 screens were equipped with Dolby Atmos, but soon the number rose to about 1000 in 2013. A lot of big titles like Iron Man 3, A Good Day to Die Hard, Life of Pi, The Hobbit, Pacific Rim and Sivaji 3D were released in Dolby Atmos showing that even the big fishes in the industry are adopting this new technology.
