- A 60-speaker, 22-channel system will bring "an unparalleled music experience" to the main room of the long-running London nightclub.
Dolby has announced its first Atmos nightclub installation.
Atmos is a soundsystem technology aimed at providing more immersive, three-dimensional audio than standard surround-sound configurations, and Dolby recently announced it was looking to bring Atmos into nightclubs. On January 23rd, 2016, they'll unveil their first Atmos club system in The Box, the main room at London's Ministry Of Sound. The system features 60 speakers carrying audio from 22 channels, and it's built on top of the room's existing sound rig. There's also a "bespoke lighting environment" being installed to accentuate the experience. A showcase of the drum & bass label Hospital Records will be the first event taking advantage of the Atmos system.
"Dolby Atmos allows our patrons to experience the future of dance music," says Lohan Presencer, Ministry Of Sound's CEO, "creating multidimensional soundscapes the likes of which have never been heard before in a nightclub environment. It's simply breathtaking."
