Datasat RS20i to deliver award-winning Dolby Atmos for luxury home cinema
Tuesday 9th September 2014
Datasat Digital Entertainment, the world leaders in audio solutions for home cinema, has today announced that the award-winning Datasat RS20i home cinema processor will be made available with the captivating, multi-dimensional sound of Dolby Atmos®. The Datasat RS20i is the reference standard for luxury home theater, and with 16 channels of audio processing is ideally suited to bring the experience of Dolby Atmos to the home.Dolby Atmos will be coming to the RS20i through all registered Datasat dealers and distributors in early 2015.
With Dolby Atmos, sound comes alive from all directions, including overhead, to fill the home theater with astonishing clarity, power, detail, and depth.Using an innovative object-based approach to sound, Dolby Atmos overcomes many of the limitations of traditional channel-based sound mixing and reproduction. Filmmakers can place a sound object – car horn, foot steps, airplane engine – where it is most natural in 3D space. The Dolby Atmos decoder then calculates which of the speakers within the home cinema set-up should be used to render a natural, immersive sound track. Datasat and Dolby have worked closely for many years to integrate all succcessful Dolby formats into its products and will continue with the integration of Dolby Atmos across the Datasat product range. With 16 channels and three expansion slots, the Datasat RS20i was designed at its inception to be upgradeable to new sound formats such as Dolby Atmos.
“Datasat has always been positioned at the leading edge of home theater audio technology, and so we are pleased to be able to incorporate Dolby Atmos into our products. Some of the world’s leading filmmakers are using Dolby Atmos sound to put the audience right in the middle of the action, so it is a logical step for Datasat to offer this new sound format to our customers. I am convinced that together the Datasat RS20i and Dolby Atmos will make for an incredible combination for home theater. I'm pleased to be able to make this announcement today,” said Ciaran Doran, Group CEO of Datasat.
