Dolby and Real Image plan 50 Atmos screens in South Asia


Real Image Media Technologies, one of India’s leading digital-cinema integrator and technology providers, has agreed to purchase a minimum of 50 Dolby Atmos™ cinema processors and intends to install them within the South Asia region.

Arvind Ranganathan, CEO of Real Image, stated, “We at Real Image have always believed in bringing the best cinema technologies to our customers, by working closely with pioneers and best-in-class companies. Now, Dolby Atmos can provide greater definition and dimension to movies as sound moves around the auditorium with precision placement to match the action on and off the screen. We are investing into Dolby Atmos in our end-to-end–chain, from our mixing studio to our digital-cinema distribution and installation business. We hope this will provide an ideal platform across the subcontinent for us to create a complete ecosystem that benefits content creators, exhibitors and audiences.”
The companies also announced that Real Image will be purchasing more than 200 additional Dolby Atmos Cinema Processor CP850 units to be installed across several leading cinema screens across South Asia, expanding the footprint of Dolby’s next-generation audio processor throughout India. These Dolby CP850 installations will enable future Dolby Atmos capabilities for screens not currently equipped with Dolby Atmos.
