BETTER SOUND: The Dolby Atmos system is the latest innovation in movie theater audio that's aiming to make the big-screen 3-D experience sound as three-dimensional as it looks.

DEBUT: "Brave" is the first feature film mixed entirely for the new audio platform from Dolby Laboratories Inc. The movie opens this weekend.

LOGISTICS: Because of Dolby Atmos' ability to aurally immerse and envelop audiences, the film's audio engineers had to craft the soundscape inside a screening theater at Skywalker Sound in Northern California instead of in a typical sound mixing studio.
