EDGEWARE TO DELIVER AT-HOME DOLBY ATMOS SURROUND SOUND

Online delivery of three-dimensional sound helps create the ultimate at-home cinema experience

STOCKHOLM, Sweden – 27 November 2017Edgeware, the pioneer of TV-specific content delivery networks, today announces that TV delivery systems now support the online delivery of Dolby Atmos surround sound for playout on home entertainment systems.

Based on the concept of audio objects, Dolby Atmos allows audio elements to be mixed as a single object that can be independently placed in a three-dimensional space. Delivered on-line via a TV CDN, this allows filmmakers to decide exactly where specific sounds should originate around the viewer and where they should move as the scene develops.

“We specialize in delivering TV and movie content, not simply web traffic that happens to include video,” said Richard Brandon, CMO at Edgeware. “So supporting audio and video enhancements like Dolby Atmos is really important in enabling our customers to create amazing TV.”

This latest Dolby Audio format is delivered using Edgeware’s unique Content Capture and TV Repackager products. It is then streamed to a home theatre system’s Dolby Atmos audio/video receiver (AVR) which translates audio streams over the system’s speakers and recreates the cinema experience designed as part of the media’s original artistic concept.

Edgeware’s Content Capture and TV Repackager systems allow on-line TV to scale to huge volumes and to keep embracing new features such as Dolby Atmos. Content Capture technology can scale with the amount of content and channels delivered, and its TV Repackager can scale to support new formats and multiple distribution networks.

“With 4K high definition and now VR content, our customers can provide TV services close to or even beyond reality,” Brandon added. “Delivering Dolby Atmos online is another step towards amazing TV.”

Support of Dolby Atmos is available to customers using Edgeware’s technology as of December 2017. For more information head to www.edgeware.tv.
