Sony Pictures to release first Dolby Vision UHD Blu-ray disc in July

03 May 2017 | Rasmus Larsen |

At CES 2017, Dolby confirmed that 3 studios will release UHD Blu-ray movies in the Dolby Vision format. Sony Pictures was not one of them but the company has now confirmed that it will release its first title (Resident Evil: Vendetta) in Dolby Vision in July.

More Dolby Vision UHD Blu-rays

The first two confirmed Dolby Vision UHD Blu-ray releases are Universal’s Despicable Me 1 & 2. We are still waiting for Warner Bros and Lionsgate, which were announced as the other two launch partners by Dolby at CES, to detail their launch plans.

Sony Pictures will be the fourth Hollywood studio to team up with Dolby in order to release Dolby Vision-quality UHD Blu-ray discs. Their first title will be ‘Resident Evil: Vendetta’ that will be released on July 18. It will also include a Dolby Atmos soundtrack.

Resident Evil: Vendetta


It is important to emphasize that the Dolby Vision format is implemented as an enhancement layer on UHD Blu-ray discs, meaning that a HDR10 version is also stored on the disc. HDR10 is mandatory under the UHD Blu-ray standard. In other words; the disc will be playable in all UHD Blu-ray players.

With four down, three remain. 20th Century Fox and Paramount have yet to commit to Dolby Vision on UHD Blu-ray. Disney/Pixar has yet to commit to UHD Blu-ray in any form.
