Meeting Location: Zoom
For our January meeting, our AES section invited Ceri Thomas from Dolby Laboratories to speak to us about Dolby Atmos. Thomas shared with us the history of Atmos, from the first theatre to at home setups. We discussed the future of sound and advice for succeeding in the field, as well as the next steps we should take as sound design students once we graduate. Through inspiring discussions and an interactive Q&A, Ceri Thomas' visit with the AES SCAD Student Section lead to passionate discussions about sound between him, the students, and the professors.
