Titled "Mull of Kintyre," the episode features the legendary musician as he recounts the inspirations and stories behind the 1977 song of the same name.
"Over the past twelve months, we've been working closely with Dolby and leading filmmakers, musicians and brands to create a library of marquee titles leveraging the Dolby Atmos technology. We truly believe high quality immersive audio in VR is more than half the experience. We're very excited to offer Dolby Atmos support in the Jaunt VR App for consumers' enjoyment," said Cliff Plumer, President of Jaunt Studios. "Experiences like 'Mull of Kintyre' in Dolby Atmos truly make you feel like you're standing there inside of the studio with Paul as his stories come to life all around you."
