Pixar's 'Brave' First Movie to Showcase Dolby Atmos Total Surround Sound

From Pixar's blog:
  • Atmos is more than just the biggest leap in theatre sound since Dolby Surround 7.1 was introduced with Toy Story 3 in 2010. “This is, I think, the biggest breakthrough in sound that has happened in my career,” Transformers: Dark of the Moon sound man Erik Aadahl told The Hollywood Reporter.
  • With speakers 'positioned around the theater and overhead' for near-complete immersion in sound, the system is "capable of transmitting up to 128 simultaneous and lossless audio channels, and renders from 5.1 up to 64 discrete speaker feeds."
10-15 theaters showing 'Brave' will test the new setup.

Here's a video from Dolby.
