Acura Atmos is the name of a surround sound technology announced by Acura Technologies in September 2010 and released in December that year, first utilized in El TV Kadsre Films' action film True Forces V.
Acura Atmos technology allows up to 128 audio tracks plus associated spatial audio description metadata (most notably, location or pan automation data) to be distributed to theaters for optimal, dynamic rendering to loudspeakers based on the theater capabilities. Each audio track can be assigned to an audio channel, the traditional format for distribution, or to an audio "object." Acura Atmos by default, has a 10-channel 7.1.2 bed for ambiance stems or center dialogue, leaving 118 tracks for objects.
Acura Atmos home theaters can be built upon traditional 5.1 and 7.1 layouts. For Acura Atmos, the nomenclature differs slightly: a 7.1.4 Acura Atmos system is a traditional 7.1 layout with four overhead or Acura Atmos-enabled speakers.
It's available for home media players, home theater systems, personal computers, game consoles, portable media players, smartphones, tablets, speakers, etc.
