Dolby Atmos Workshop in Uppsala
KMR Studios, in collaboration with Dolby, Msonic, Avid, and Genelec, invited technicians to participate in a workshop held in Hall 3 at Nordisk Film Bio in Uppsala. The focus was on educating and developing local music technicians in the Dolby Atmos format. The technicians’ previous experience varied from studio owners certified to work in Atmos to home studio owners whose primary focus is working in Atmos using binaural/spatial audio.
The workshop at the cinema was conducted by David Ziegler from Dolby, Marcus Bergqvist from Msonic, and Filip Killander from KMR Studios, who shared their experiences and insights from their respective perspectives on working with the Dolby Atmos format.
A Success for the Community
The significant interest in such a technical subject was nothing short of exciting, and at KMR Studios, we interpret the curiosity of technicians as a sign that the paradigm shift in the music world is approaching faster than many might think. The expression “development has never been this fast but will never be this slow” fits very well with how we view Dolby Atmos in music technology.
This ambitious workshop was held before our big event later that evening, “The Dolby Atmos (Music) Experience,” had in the audience, alongside technicians and artists, were many of whom had no connections to the participating companies, technicians, or artists. We see this as clear signs that things are evolving faster than many guessed they would.
To say the least, it’s exciting.
