I strongly believe (and a few insiders do too) that Disney and many of the other studios are holding off on adding DTS: X and Dolby Atmos immersive soundtracks until Ultra HD Blu-ray debuts. 

 

3D audio will be used as an enticement to upgrade just like High Dynamic Range, Wide Color Gamut, and High Frame Rate content. 

 

There is no official 3D UHD video support (and there may not be) and many masters will be 2k upconverts, for various reasons, for these new discs, so all these other improvements are being dangled as carrots.

 

Even Sony has been starting to amass home theater immersive mixes and re-mixes (though no word on whether they're Atmos or X encoded) for later consumer use as mentioned in one of the latest Home Theater Geek webcasts.

It appears Yamaha will soon be releasing AVRs with both DTS X & ATMOS!

Looking forward to see what's up with those

 

I hope the speaker positions are similar otherwise the HT will look ridiculous! 

 

For example if DTS X follows the current 11.2 placement with the 4 "effect" speakers higher up on front & back walls

VS

ATMOS having the 4 "effect" speakers having placements closer to the central room positioningaimed downwards

(or upward firing speakers aimed at positions that reflect off  the central ceiling positions)

 

If different, that would require an extra 4 "in & downward" aimed speakers.

And a method of toggling each of the 4 speaker sets off or on, depending on the input source's encoding.


Regards,

Doug

As of right now, first generation "normally priced" consumer DTS:X products will conform to Dolby Atmos positions.  Perhaps you'll have one other choice for height speakers rather than overheads depending on how many processor resources a particular manufacturer is willing to give towards object re-mapping features.

 

Some products with both Dolby Atmos and DTS:X will only give you the option of Atmos layouts. 

 

It depends.  Either way, you won't have to have one layout for one format and one layout for another.

 

DTS keeps saying their consumer version of DTS:X is agnostic with no prescribed layout.  You do still need some sort of elevation layer of speakers to get the proper 3D effect.   Otherwise, you might as well stick to the old fashioned 5.1 or 7.1 layout.
