Past Event: Dolby Atmos Demonstration

November 26, 2013 at 12:00 pm

Location: The Dolby Theatre 1350 Ave of the Americas.

Moderated by: Kenneth R. Hunold Dolby Laboratories, Inc.

Speaker(s): Tom Kodros, Senior Manager, Content Services Dolby Laboratories, Inc.

Last year, at our May meeting, Charles Robinson of Dolby Laboratories discussed the new cinema audio system called Dolby Atmos.  Since that time, over 70 motion pictures have been produced in the format, and around 1000 theatres worldwide (about 700 in North America) have installed the system hardware. 

This month, our Section will have a rare afternoon meeting that will feature actual demonstrations of the system in the Dolby Theatre in New York.  This theater has been rebuilt with the Dolby Atmos system.  Tom Kodros, Senior Manager, Content Services will lead the discussion and give the presentation.

The primary topic of discussion at the meeting will be the technology that allows the design features of the system to be implemented.  There will also be a tutorial demonstration of the system, and clips from some of the films that have been produced in the system, courtesy of the studios.  There will be time for questions and answers about the system and the installation.


  • Please note the special time of this meeting - 12 Noon on Tuesday November 26th.


The Dolby Theatre is located at 1350 Ave of the Americas.  The entrance to the building is on the southeast corner of Avenue of the Americas and 55th Street.  The theatre is on the main floor.   We hope to see you there.
