Apple TV 4K to feature Dolby Atmos support via a tvOS software update


Apple Tv 4K

Apple TV 4K will support Dolby Atmos Sorround technology with an upcoming tvOS software update. Dolby Atmos has been developed to give TV movies and shows a three-dimensional audio effect. Rather than being tied to certain channels, sounds can be positioned and moved in three-dimensional fashion. The system is based on sound objects, unlike previous systems that were based on the channels.

This system supports up to 128 sound objects, each with its own sound characteristics, each of which can be assigned any position in a three-dimensional space, which may vary over time. Depending on the position taken by the event at a given time, the audio processor will decide which speakers will play it to create a more realistic three-dimensional audio environment. With this system the audio involvement is more complete, for example you will hear the rain falling from above, the thunder expanding above us as in the most classic of the storms or making the roar of a helicopter look real, the peculiarity of the Dolby Atmos it is just that to wrap the spectator even from above. The system supports up to 64 acoustic speakers.

There is also bad news for all those who want to put YouTube on this Apple TV 4K, the maximum resolution that the platform offers on this television is 1080p, that is, full HD. This is largely due to the fact that most of the videos do not exceed this quality, so it was a potentially worthless expense for many by the apple. Tomorrow will finally come this version of the Apple TV and although not as expected, it is clear that will give the size.
