I have several hundred 4K discs and I know on one of them at least that had a Dolby Atmos Demo on it. It was the demo that has several leaves ( for lack of a better word) that come from all directions to form a shape. I have tried the one on you tube but it is not atmos.
If anyone knows of a disc that has this demo in the beginning I would greatly appreciate it. I certainly don't want to watch all of mine until I find it.
Thanks in advance for your help. Great Forum by the way!

You Tube doesn't support Atmos, only 2 channel stereo. You can either find the demo online and download to a USB stick for use in your UHD player [if supported] or check your library for titles that contain native demos. The ones I know of that do are below. It's unfortunate that Dolby Labs still hasn't made their integrators disc available to consumers.

Thanks for your help guys. I went to the link that John Rice suggested and found exactly what I needed.
I downloaded the one I wanted to a thumb drive and it worked perfectly.
Thanks again,
JOHN

I read in a review on Sound and Vision which said Dolby released an Atmos Demo disc in 2015. Does anyone know about this one?

I was given a copy by an industry insider, although it is intended "for promotional use only". It features five of the theatrical trailers, excerpts from seven movies & TV shows, some audio only sound effects, six musical excerpts, some other stuff, and test tones for the various possible configurations (such as 5.1.2, 7.1.2, 9.1.6, etc.)

Not surprisingly, the trailers are the most impressive things on the disc, since they were created solely to show off the Atmos capabilities.

Is that the demo disc I was referring to?

I've heard of people being burned on eBay trying to buy these so I would probably avoid that route.
Fair enough.

I had a contact and got the last two HD Atmos discs and a couple DTS discs. And AFAIK all the logo stingers (THX, Atmos, DTS-HD, etc) from the enthusiast sites.

There’s also a bunch of enthusiast demo “discs” from the past decade available by way of AVS forum. I’ve got a load of those too.

Don't get me wrong, I want one of these discs in the worst way and would gladly pay a fair price. I've just had bad luck with eBay standing behind me when a disc wasn't as described, even when it was sold as new yet failed to play.
