Thanks to Dolby Atmos, we have two copies of Everest to give away. Inspired by the incredible events surrounding an attempt to reach the summit of the world’s highest mountain, Everest documents the awe-inspiring journey of two different expeditions challenged beyond their limits by one of the fiercest snowstorms ever encountered by mankind. Their mettle tested by the harshest elements found on the planet, the climbers will face nearly impossible obstacles as a lifelong obsession becomes a breathtaking struggle for survival.
Dolby Atmos brings the thrilling adventures climb in Everest to life, placing viewers in the middle of the heart-pounding snow storm at home with detailed, multi-dimensional sound. Whether it’s a high-speed avalanche or intimate conversation between climbers, Dolby Atmos puts viewers in the heart of the action. “In a movie like this, you’re dealing with characters in a natural environment, and what we’re trying to do with the Dolby Atmos mix on this picture is to describe that environment and make the viewer feel like they’re on the mountain with the characters,” Sound Re-recording Mixer Ian Tapp said. “And what the Atmos system really enables us to do is to place the sound where we want them to get the realism that we want in the soundtrack and really really involve the audience with it.” Check out the full video feature on Atmos in Everest here:
Dolby Atmos is a sophisticated sound experience found in some of the best theaters worldwide and at home. It transports you into the action with breathtaking realism, as moving audio flows all around you in a three-dimensional space. Filmmakers can not only move sound around viewers, but also overhead to realistically depict objects above the audience. Dolby has brought the technology into our homes to make a more immersive and powerful entertainment experience for movie-lovers. Even without an Atmos sound system for the home (although preferred), you will still notice the difference through your television’s speakers or your surround sound system when using the Dolby Atmos setting on your Blu-ray.
