Dolby Laboratories, Inc. and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment (SPHE) have announced plans to use the new Dolby Vision mastering process for the release of 4K Ultra HD titles by a variety of home entertainment distribution partners.
SPHE plans to release a growing slate of Dolby Vision 4K Ultra HD titles in the coming months.
“We continue to be enthusiastic about the growing consumer appetite for next-generation 4K Ultra HD content,” says Richard Berger, senior vice president, worldwide digital strategy and advanced platforms, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
“With Dolby Vision imaging technology, we can now master our movies with the highest-quality visual experience for distribution to consumers’ homes.”
“Dolby Vision shines a bright new light on Sony Pictures Home Entertainment’s compelling new releases and distinguished catalogue” adds Curt Behlmer, senior vice president, content solutions and industry relations, Dolby Laboratories. “Consumers who purchase SPHE movies that have been mastered in Dolby Vision are able to feel the full visual drama of lifelike images unfold in the comfort of their living room, exciting their senses with an entirely new entertainment experience.”
Dolby Vision, a complement to 4K Ultra HD, is a new imaging technology that helps content creators deliver an enhanced visual experience.
An end-to-end solution, Dolby Vision can be incorporated from content creation to distribution and playback, and has already received support from high profile film directors, executives at major studios and OTT service providers.
