We are continuing in the tradition of an annual triple engineering group meeting again this June. Last year we were fortunate to have a well-attended presentation from Dolby Laboratories on the next generation broadcast audio AC-4 delivery standard. This year Dolby is coming through for us again to present and show in practice the ATMOS content creation product that is becoming the standard of surround and immersive audio workflow.

As part of an end to end standard through transport and final consumer delivery on multiple platforms, Atmos is a singular system capable of producing all deliverables from mono through stereo and 5.1, to immersive and personalized audio. Dolby Atmos is by far the most popular system for producing content for Blu-Ray, today’s and next generation digital broadcast, gaming, and virtual reality. in recent years, Atmos has moved beyond the world of cinema and into the frantic arena of live TV. The company has mainly looked at creating more realistic experiences in sporting events like soccer matches, racing, and the Olympics..

We have the pleasure and fortune to have Cheryl Ottenritter of Ott House Audio and Robbie Carman of DC Color along with Dolby Laboratories co-sponsoring this year’s annual DC area professional association meeting.  In summary, will get a tech talk as well as a hands-on and practical demonstration of the Atmos product in action. We will see immersive and personalized sound post-production integrated with post color grading, and a demonstration of Dolby Vision HDR and how it is rendered and referenced to each particular display device in actual use.


Registration is required for this event.  Please register today because space is limited and is filling up fast for this special event.  We would appreciate your RSVP by June 19th. There are boxes to check for organization affiliation. Membership is not a requirement for the event
