It all started with Dolby Surround, which was developed by audio specialist Dolby in California. Most cinema films have had the digital “Dolby Digital” standard since 2012. Dolby Surround ensures that every sound is heard where the sound engineer wanted it to be. But time has not stood still since 2012. Dolby Atmos is still new today but will become the standard for Hollywood productions in the near future. Netflix and Amazon Prime are also upgrading as we speak.
And what is so new then? The Dolby Atmos technology allows an almost unlimited number of audio tracks. Strictly speaking, these are sound objects that can be positioned at specific coordinates in the private cinema. If a movie is streamed in Dolby Atmos no problem. Dolby Atmos is also downward compatible with older systems like 5.1 or 7.1. The big difference? The 5.1. or 7.1 speakers used, each emit the same sound.
Dolby Atmos, on the other hand, can provide each speaker with an individual signal and thus uses an unlimited number of audio tracks. This enables many more front, surround and ceiling speakers to be installed. A realistic simulation of rain, birds or helicopters is possible. That’s what Dolby calls “The Voice of God.” The sound from above gives a completely new sound dimension. In the old cinema you can hear the sound from everywhere but never from above. You can look up to see if there’s really anything there. The sound can be so intense.
Incidentally, the algorithms of Dolby Atmos technology calculate in real time which loudspeakers have to be activated at what volume in order to correctly simulate the moving, sound-generating object. Together, this creates the immersive Dolby Atmos sound image.
Sounds exciting right? You have to have experienced and heard the immersive Dolby Atmos sound and you will see: It does not get any better than this. Call us and arrange a session in our private cinema

We were able to see and test them personally and are thrilled: HYM thinks sound and design in new standards! Architectural speakers for unique and emotional sound experiences. HYM blends sound, light and architecture into an emotional experience. Excellent sound, high quality design and innovative technology. Made in Germany.
HYM delta – the revolutionary built-in loudspeaker that inspires!
There has never been such a thing: A radial radiator, which elegantly sinks down from the ceiling. A challenging development that has been mastered! The sound is distributed voluminously and evenly to 360 ° in the room, because tweeters and woofers radiate precisely over an internal reflector. This listening experience gets under your skin.
The extendable built-in loudspeaker also has something new to offer in terms of aesthetics:
At rest, it is almost invisible to the viewer, but activated by a music signal or press a button, it subtly drops off 40 millimeters. Even in this condition it remains an elegant design element.
The interplay of functionality, sound and design is extraordinary with this speaker and, thanks to technical mastery, has become possible even in the smallest of spaces. The HYM delta is also supported by a bass reflex system as well as a high quality crossover and precise control.
Together with HYM we offer you unique audio solutions and set new standards in sound, material, installation and design. We look forward to your feedback or inquiry!
