It was my biggest dislike of what it sounded like, not feeling real. They are trying to get people to feel the real life experience but thru their TV and sound system.

I could feel the rumble of the cars because they had lots of speakers and the power driving them. Yes they really appreciated what we said, I waited for everyone else to speak before I gave my opinion, not saying that I have more experience but I have been to 100's of race days in my life and heard 1000's of runs and no one tried to explain it the way I did.

The people conducting this were very friendly and open to discussion, we weren't being rushed thru this session. They also told us they have like 500 engineers working on SOUND systems trying to develope new and better systems, wether thats true who knows. It was fun being asked as a NHRA fan what I though. One of the guys that also went up there was ANDRE from Toyota, the head guy ( DM ) or whatever his title is. It was cool hanging with him awhile. Over all a great experience.
Hmm, 500 engineers. I'll assume "they" were Dolby guys? But probably not, I doubt Dolby has that many employees. Maybe some network or broadcast ones ? Anyway it's still good someone is trying to do something.
Were the other audience folks impressed? I wonder what they think they can develop? It has to be $$$ motivated. Did they say anything about what they are trying to accomplish?

They would be Dolby people. I think everyone was impressed, it was to try to have as real of an experience viewing a TV as it is at the track. The only problem is most people don't have a superior sound system let alone a Dolby ATMOS system. Just a better viewing experience.
