WHICH DEVICES ARE COMPATIBLE?

We have included useful information to guide you in your purchase, helping you to select the audio formats best suited to your needs.

The audio formats we use for home theater systems are:
– Dolby Atmos Digital Plus (Lossy)
– Dolby Atmos TrueHD (Lossless)

Dolby Atmos TrueHD uses the MKV (Matrioska Video) format or in online streaming content, Dolby Atmos TrueHD may be present with the extension “.mkv” or “.mp4”, depending on the specific configuration.
Dolby Atmos Digital Plus uses the MP4 format.

  • Dolby Atmos Digital Plus:
    • Compression: Dolby Atmos Digital Plus uses lossy compression, which means that some audio data is discarded during the compression process.
    • Data Loss: As a lossy format, Dolby Atmos Digital Plus incurs some loss of audio information, but the level of loss is designed to be imperceptible to the human ear.
    • Bitrate: The bitrate for Dolby Atmos Digital Plus typically ranges from 384 to 768 kbps, depending on the specific implementation and the streaming service.
  • Dolby Atmos TrueHD:
    • Compression: Dolby Atmos TrueHD, on the other hand, utilizes lossless compression, preserving all the original audio data without any loss during compression.
    • Data Loss: Being a lossless format, Dolby Atmos TrueHD does not introduce any loss of audio quality, providing a more accurate representation of the original sound.
    • Bitrate: The bitrate for Dolby Atmos TrueHD is generally higher compared to Dolby Atmos Digital Plus, and it can range from 4 to 18 Mbps, depending on the complexity of the audio content.

CONCLUSION: 

In summary, the choice between TrueHD with Dolby Atmos and Dolby Atmos DD+ depends on specific needs, with TrueHD offering maximum lossless audio quality, while Dolby Atmos DD+ provides good quality with broader compatibility across a variety of devices.

For listening to our immersive content with smart speakers or sound bars, we recommend Dolby Atmos Digital Plus in MP4 format.

Dolby Digital Plus is widely used by streaming and broadcast services to deliver surround sound audio at lower bitrates.  Dolby Atmos audio in Dolby Digital Plus is typically encoded at bitrates between 384 and 768 kbps.

 

The ability to play Dolby Atmos TrueHD files depends on the specific technical capabilities of the soundbar or smart speakers in question. Dolby Atmos TrueHD is a high-resolution audio format and requires specific hardware and software support for proper playback.

Some soundbars and smart speakers may support Dolby Atmos, but not all of them can handle the TrueHD format. It’s important to check the specifications of the device and the supported features. Some products may offer simulation or reconstruction of Dolby Atmos without supporting the TrueHD format.

If you want to fully enjoy the Dolby Atmos TrueHD audio experience, it’s advisable to use a dedicated audio system that supports this format and is compatible with the audio sources you are using.

For listening to our immersive content WITHOUT HEADPHONES OR HEARABLES with your computer / laptop or tablet the audio format is Dolby Atmos Digital Plus in mp4 format.

Dolby Digital Plus is widely used by streaming and broadcast services to deliver surround sound audio at lower bitrates.  Dolby Atmos audio in Dolby Digital Plus is typically encoded at bitrates between 384 and 768 kbps..

It is necessary to use a media player that supports Dolby Atmos and the associated audio formats. Some popular media players such as QuickTime,  VLC, Windows Media Player and some Blu-ray playback software can handle Dolby Atmos audio files, but it is important to ensure that your PC’s operating system and audio settings are configured correctly for Dolby Atmos support.

We offer the finest spatial audio quality for headphones. No need to have an account on music streaming platforms.
Just choose the FLAC or AAC format and then download the track to your phone / Tablet / PC and connect your earpiece. Our audio is available for headphones, pods, and hearables connected to Mobile Phones, tablets, Laptop PC or Multimedia Players.

For listening our content with headphones or hearables the audio formats are two : 

FLAC (Free Lossless Audio Codec) is a compressed audio format that differs from traditional lossy compression methods. Unlike formats like MP3 or AAC, FLAC is a lossless compression, meaning it retains all the original audio data during compression without sacrificing quality. The compression in FLAC is achieved by encoding redundant data more efficiently rather than discarding it.

MP3 (MPEG-1 Audio Layer 3) format is a widely used audio file format that employs lossy audio compression to reduce the file size while maintaining a good level of sound quality. It was developed by the Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG) and has become the de facto standard for online digital music files. MP3 files are about 1/10th the size of uncompressed audio formats like WAV or AIFF, making them ideal for streaming over the internet and storing large music collections. The format allows for the storage of music, podcasts, audiobooks, and other audio content, and is supported by a wide range of devices and operating systems. MP3 files can be played on virtually every computer, smartphone, and tablet, and are compatible with popular media players such as iTunes and Winamp. While newer audio formats offer better sound quality at smaller file sizes, MP3 remains a popular choice for its wide compatibility and efficient compression.

For your 360° video or immersive video game, the format is Ambix. 

Ambix is an Ambisonic audio format that represents a three-dimensional sound field comprehensively. 

Ambix is commonly used in immersive audio productions, such as 360-degree videos, virtual reality (VR), and augmented reality (AR). Its spherical representation offers an engaging and realistic sound experience

**Professional Audio Production:** Audiophiles and professional recording studios may use Ambix to capture and reproduce a wide range of spatial details in sound.

**Post-Production:** Ambix can be employed in audio post-production for applications like film sound design, advanced music production, and the creation of multi-channel audio content.

**Compatibility with Other Immersive Technologies:** Ambix is often integrated with other immersive technologies, such as motion tracking systems and 3D graphics, for a comprehensive and synchronized audio representation with the visual environment.

In summary, the Ambisonic Ambix format is designed to provide a comprehensive and three-dimensional audio representation, making it suitable for a wide range of immersive and professional applications.”

In the Vondelpark, our participants sat on their own inflated skippy balls. This is how our event started. Back to yourself, finding peace in the hustle and bustle of Amsterdam.
Together with the fragment of the Flower of Sound. An impactful start. The participants left the delusion of the day behind.
Exactly what we had in mind. A real awe experience!
