Comic-Con begins in two days, so naturally I, as well as several others on our Dolby team, have superheroes and sci-fi on the brain. Heck, I’ve had them on my mind for some time, what with the release of a whole slew of comic book movies in the past few years, many of them released with a Dolby Surround 7.1 soundtrack.
That got Andi, Sean, and me thinking about how we could illustrate Dolby Surround 7.1’s relationship with superheroes. The characters of the comics are, after all, larger than life, and Dolby Surround 7.1 provides a great soundtrack to accompany the breathtaking visuals their films often include. Seven surround zones, working together with the help of a subwoofer to keep the movie moving, it almost parallels a film like The Avengers (which was in Dolby Surround 7.1, incidentally).
So Sean got to work creating our Dolby Surround 7.1 superhero. Always discrete, never upscaled, with the power of all the superheroes presented in Dolby Surround 7.1 before him, we think he’ll join the ranks of the elite sonic superheroes in no time.
Can you identify all the superheroes who combined to make our Dolby Surround 7.1 superhero? There are elements of each in this image – and why not add the superhero you’d most like to see presented in Dolby Surround 7.1 or Dolby Atmos, the .1 to the picture!
