12-Channel Surround Sound (!!!!!!) debuts with 'Red Tails' release

"The World War II action-drama Red Tails will be released in select theaters in Barcoís Auro-3D 11.1 surround sound. Most theaters use 5.1 or 7.1 audio, which has three speakers in front, two on the side, and two in the back. 11.1 changes that up by putting up far more speakers at various heights in order to reproduce the audio dimension of height. Since Red Tails depicts intense aerial combat, itís an ideal candidate to test out the 11.1 system. Itís important to note that while the audio system is called ďAuro-3DĒ, itís only creating a 3D audio mix. Visually, Red Tails will be released in 2D only."

now why Barco and Datasat didn't implement the left center and right center channels of sound that have been featured in pre-1977 and 8-channel SDDS movies is a complete mystery since five front sound can create an even wider soundscape - 14-Channel sound - sure, why not?

Five additional movies mixed in 'Auro-3D' are expected in 2012

Not bad, but isn't it a little late for this?

I would have found this interesting two months ago when the story was written and the movie was in theaters.

If I had known about this, I would have checked out Red Tails... I'm close to the theater in Calabasas.

I apologize this news a tad on the late side... but I'll be better in terms of letting folks know in advance what the other 'Auro-3D' films are.

Not til they attach speakers directly to my ears and place one right between my butt cheeks will I be satisfied. Who really sat around and said "You know we really need 11 speakers."?
