Dolby announced a new feature that’s set to make your TV speakers sing like never before.

Say hello to Dolby Atmos FlexConnect: a new feature that pairs a TV’s sound system with wireless speakers, unlocking a more immersive Dolby Atmos sound experience.

What’s the secret sauce? FlexConnect is designed to “intelligently optimize the sound” based on the configuration of your room and the placement of your speakers.

“Consumers shouldn’t have to move their furniture to experience better audio, but rather audio should adapt to them,” said John Couling, Senior Vice President, Entertainment, Dolby Laboratories. “Dolby Atmos FlexConnect is an entirely new category of experience that offers consumers the freedom and flexibility to choose how they want to arrange their devices while still getting a great immersive Dolby Atmos experience.”

The features are mainly aimed at optimizing your speaker setup and take things like furniture setup, the size of your room, and other things that would otherwise have an effect on your sound setup.

If it detects a pair of speakers at the front of the room, it adjusts the audio so that the TV takes the lead on dialogue while the speakers handle the rest of the front soundstage.

And if there are speakers installed in the back of the room, the TV increases its power for dialogue and sounds that need to originate from the front of the room.

Setting up is a piece of cake. The microphones tucked inside your TV do all the grunt work, pinpointing each speaker while calibrating the audio to perfection.

Now for the cherry on top. Unlike Samsung’s Q-Symphony and Sony’s Acoustic Center Sync, which demand brand loyalty for both soundbar and TV, Dolby Atmos FlexConnect works with various manufacturers.

The best part? You won’t have to wait too long to experience this. Dolby Atmos FlexConnect is set to make its grand debut on TCL TVs in 2024.
