Dolby said that the success of Dolby Atmos, as a vital component of some of this decade’s powerful films, has paved the way for new applications in home theater, PC and mobile devices, video games, virtual reality, and even music venues, such as the famous Ministry of Sound nightclub in London.

In addition, more than 20 titles are now available for over-the-top delivery by streaming-service providers like Vudu, which has begun delivering content encoded in Dolby Atmos as part of its 4K content offerings.
