PENNSAUKEN, N.J. —Orban Labs has announced the availability of Orban AtmoSphere, its Dolby Atmos upmixer, designed to deliver a consistent surround sound experience. 

The Orban AtmoSphere automatically upmixes any legacy content, including mono, stereo and 5.1 audio to Dolby Atmos in real-time. 

“Our Orban AtmoSphere upmixer enables television broadcasters to provide their viewers with  consistent immersive audio programming without image collapses caused by legacy non-Atmos  content.” said David Day, president of Orban, which is a leader in audio processing for TV, radio and internet broadcasting. “The U.S. patent-protected AtmoSphere technology also alleviates the costs of remixing legacy content to accommodate Dolby Atmos mixes.” 

Dolby Atmos is a technology that adds overhead action effects as well as subtle atmospheric  and object-based locational effects that places the listener in a '3D sphere of sound’ for a more realistic sense of acoustic space than provided by traditional surround 7.1 systems. Orban  AtmoSphere is available as standalone hardware and on the Ross softGear platform, the company said.
