11 Sep 2015 | Rasmus Larsen |

All major movie studios have committed to releasing movies in Dolby Cinema; cinemas with Dolby Vision HDR pictures and Dolby Atmos sound, the company announced today. High dynamic range is happening.

Movies in HDR is happening

There is a “open” standard for HDR (high dynamic range) video and then there is Dolby Vision, which incorporates HDR and high-end specs. To enjoy the Dolby Vision picture experience you currently have to find one of the cinemas but soon you will also be able to enjoy it from the comfort of your living room couch.

It is therefore great news that Sony Pictures, Warner Brothers, and 20th Century Fox will release new movies in Dolby Vision over the next couple of months. The company today confirmed that Sony will release “The Perfect Guy”, Fox will release “Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials” and “The Martian”, and Warner will release “Pan” and “In the Heart of the Sea”.

The first movies in Dolby Vision were released earlier this year, including Inside Out and Tomorrowland from Disney.

- “We are delighted to see a dynamic slate of movies, with all the major Hollywood studios embracing today’s most advanced and powerful imaging and sound technologies,” said Doug Darrow, Senior Vice President, Cinema, Dolby Laboratories

The four movie studios are expected to later bring the same titles to the living room on Ultra HD Blu-ray discs, although no confirmation at press time was given.

There are already several HDR-capable TVs on the market but the first TVs with support for Dolby Vision have yet to arrive. So far, only Vizio has confirmed that it will bring a TV with Dolby Vision support to the market. Other TV manufacturers, including TCL, Sharp and Philips, have showcased Dolby Vision capable TVs at trade shows.
