Dolby Unveils Game-Changing Audio Innovation: Dolby Atmos FlexConnect

In the ever-evolving landscape of immersive entertainment experiences, Dolby Laboratories has once again set a new standard. Today, they pulled back the curtain on their latest sonic masterpiece - Dolby Atmos FlexConnect. Partnering with TCL, a renowned global TV brand, Dolby is all set to revolutionize how we experience sound in our homes with this groundbreaking technology, which is slated to debut in TCL's 2024 TV lineup.

A Seamless Symphony of Sound

Dolby Atmos FlexConnect is a technological marvel that seamlessly synchronizes your TV's sound system with wireless accessory speakers, immersing you in a captivating Dolby Atmos soundscape. It doesn't stop there; it's also incredibly clever. This innovation adapts the audio to suit your room layout and speaker configuration, ensuring that every corner of your living space becomes the best seat in the house. To complement this innovation, TCL is rolling out a line of accessory wireless speakers specifically designed to enhance the Dolby Atmos FlexConnect experience on their upcoming TVs.

John Couling, Senior Vice President of Entertainment at Dolby Laboratories, emphasized, "Consumers shouldn't have to rearrange their furniture to enjoy superior audio; instead, audio should adapt to them. Dolby Atmos FlexConnect introduces an entirely new category of experience, giving consumers the freedom and flexibility to arrange their devices as they please while still enjoying a top-notch immersive Dolby Atmos experience."

Unleash Your Sound, Anywhere, Anyhow

One common challenge consumers face is optimizing speaker placement for the best audio experience. Rooms can be too small or too big, and unique layouts can limit where devices can be placed. Dolby Atmos FlexConnect breaks these barriers, liberating you to position one or more wireless speakers wherever you like, free from the tyranny of perfect placement. This solution also easily adapts as you add more device types, offering limitless possibilities for manufacturers like TCL to innovate and cater to diverse consumer needs.

The system then uses its intelligence to harmonize each accessory device with your TV's speakers, delivering peak sound performance and a customized Dolby Atmos audio experience. With Dolby Atmos FlexConnect, your favorite entertainment envelops you completely, making it as simple as utilizing your TV's sound system alongside supplementary speakers.

The Benefits of Dolby Atmos FlexConnect

Here's what this audio revolution brings to the table:

  • Enhanced Dolby Atmos Experience: Dolby Atmos, renowned for its multi-dimensional sound, gets an upgrade. FlexConnect lets you add wireless accessory speakers to your Dolby Atmos-enabled TV for an even more immersive experience.

  • Perfect Audio Placement: Forget about constraints like room dimensions, power outlet locations, or furniture arrangements. You can place speakers wherever it suits you without compromising audio quality.

  • Effortless Setup: Setting up is a breeze, no extra equipment or cables needed. Dolby's acoustic mapping uses the TV's built-in microphones to locate each wireless speaker in the room, automatically calibrating the system for optimal audio performance.

  • Dynamic Audio Balancing: Audio is intelligently distributed from the TV speakers to the wireless ones, dynamically optimizing the sound signal based on the capabilities and locations of all available speakers. This ensures that you consistently enjoy top-tier audio performance.

A Sneak Peek at the Future

To give audiences a taste of this groundbreaking technology, Dolby and TCL will showcase Dolby Atmos FlexConnect at IFA, powered by MediaTek's Pentonic Smart TV series chipset.
