Firmware Update for IMAX® Enhanced and Dolby Atmos Height Virtualizer Released for Select Onkyo A/V Components

Press Release dated: 1 Aug 2019

TOKYO, JAPAN. August 1, 2019 — Onkyo & Pioneer Corporation is pleased to release a firmware update today that activates IMAX® Enhanced and Dolby Atmos Height Virtualizer on selected Onkyo network A/V receiver models.

IMAX® Enhanced

By combining a TV display with an IMAX Enhanced certified Network A/V Receiver that’s optimized to reproduce the full-dynamic-range IMAX signature sound experience in the home, cinephiles can enjoy IMAX Enhanced content at the highest levels, just as the filmmakers intended. IMAX Enhanced versions of films are scheduled for 4K HDR streaming and Ultra HD Blu-ray™ release.

Dolby Atmos Height Virtualizer

Dolby Atmos Height Virtualizer, the latest surround technology developed by Dolby Laboratories, enables immersive listening with Dolby® formats by creating a virtual surround and height effect from traditional speaker layouts. Now Dolby Atmos® can be enjoyed without height speakers or Dolby Atmos enabled speakers in layouts featuring more than two channels.

Firmware Compatibility

Firmware enabling IMAX Enhanced and Dolby Atmos Height Virtualizer is now available for the following Onkyo models:

- Network A/V Receiver TX-RZ840, TX-RZ740

Firmware can be downloaded and installed directly on network-connected components, or downloaded to USB memory from the Onkyo website and installed via the receiver’s USB input.
