Dolby Laboratories announced today 20 cinemas wordlwide will be able to show Disney-Pixar's 'Brave' in the Dolby Atmos surround sound format. Atmos, reviewed here and here, is Dolby's most advanced and flexible theatrical surround sound format to date. It featuers at least 9.1 discrete audio channels (three front channels, two side channels, two rear channels, two overhead cieling channels, and an LFE channel) with the ability to expand up to 64.4 surround sound depending on cinema auditorium size and specifications. 'Brave', a 3D computer animated fairytale from the braintrust at Pixar, is the first film to be mixed in the ultra-immersive formatwhen the film releases on June 22, 2012. Dolby plans to equip 1,000 movie theatres with Atmos by summer 2013, but for now, you'll have to travel to select cities.
