Dome Productions makes the leap to 4K HDR and Dolby Atmos with DirecTV

Dome Productions continues to push the technological envelope for live sports coverage, producing the 12 November Toronto Raptors-New Orleans Pelicans NBA game in 4K HDR and Dolby Atmos for distribution to the home by DirecTV.

The game is among the first to be produced in the 4K, HDR, and Dolby Atmos surround sound formats and distributed live to North American households, joining NBC Sports Group’s efforts for Notre Dame home football games this season.

“We’re really excited to be producing HDR and Atmos,” said Mike Johnson, director, engineering, Dome Productions. “That said, we can’t have any impact on the [production team] because the main HD SDR show has to be equal to or better [than it usually is]. One of the other big benefits is that SDR feeds are enriched by having the HDR-native cameras.”
