Mercedes-Benz Prepares To Offer Dolby Atmos In Select Car Models – The Hollywood Reporter
Mercedes–Benz will bring Dolby Atmos sound to a range of its top car models starting in summer 2022, the company said Thursday.
The immersive audio system will be integrated with the optional Burmester 4D and 3D audio system, as well as the Mercedes-Maybach, followed by the Mercedes-Benz S-Class.
The configuration will include 31 speakers, including six speakers that emit sound through the speaker and four speakers in the front seats, as well as a subwoofer.
“Mercedes-Benz is one of the first luxury car brands in the world to rely on revolutionary Dolby Atmos technology,” said Britta Seeger, member of the board of directors of Mercedes-Benz AG responsible for sales, in a published press release. “With Dolby Atmos and the Burmester audio system, we provide our customers with an exciting in-vehicle music experience that almost feels like a live concert.”
John Couling, senior vice president of Dolby Business Partnerships, added, “At Dolby, we are passionate about extending the Dolby Atmos Music experience, so consumers can enjoy it anywhere and Mercedes-Benz shares our vision. We’re excited to work with them to accelerate adoption of this immersive hearing experience in cars. “
