    Captivate Audiences and Drive Revenue

    Whether you’re creating movies, TV shows, games, or music, you need to engage your audience with the best sounding content possible.

    Dolby Atmos immersive audio technology opens up a whole new creative palette to bring your creative vision to life and deliver spectacular experiences, which is why the world’s leading studios, content creators, streaming services, broadcasters, and device manufacturers have embraced Dolby.

    This session will show you how Dolby Atmos content can be created in the industry-standard workflows you’re already using, to empower you creatively, help you stay focused on doing your best work rather than on the tools, and streamline the creation of other generic deliverables.
