Paramount commits to bringing Dolby Vision & Atmos to UHD Blu-ray

20 Jul 2017 | Rasmus Larsen |

20th Century Fox and Paramount were the last holdouts but Dolby has today announced that Paramount will start mastering and releasing movies in Dolby Vision on UHD Blu-ray and for streaming. Dolby Atmos will also be included.

Paramount commits

Lionsgate, Sony Pictures, Universal, and Warner Bros had all committed to supporting Dolby Vision on UHD Blu-ray or streaming. Disney joined the group two weeks ago, and Paramount is the latest company to come onboard.

- “Consumers with Dolby Vision enabled televisions and Dolby Atmos enabled home theater products will now be able to enjoy a broad spectrum of entertainment from Paramount Pictures and have access to a growing catalog of Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision content worldwide,” said Dolby.

No titles or concrete plans were announced but today’s announcement confirms that Paramount will release movies in “Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos for online streaming services and Ultra HD Blu-ray” as well as use Atmos on traditional HD Blu-ray releases.

Paramount has in recent years released titles such as ’Star Trek’, ’Transformers’, ’Ghost in the Shell’, ’Baywatch’, and ’Arrival’.

- “The combination of high quality, immersive audio and dramatic visual imaging truly elevates the home viewing experience,” said Bob Buchi, President, Worldwide Home Media Distribution, Paramount Pictures. “Having diligently studied the range of offerings in next generation home entertainment technologies, we are thrilled to be working with Dolby to enhance the consumer entertainment experience as they enjoy Paramount’s movies in Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision.”

Dolby Vision is the company’s proprietary HDR video format and a premium alternative to the open industry standard HDR10. Dolby Atmos is the company’s object-based audio format. With the Paramount partnership, Dolby is continuing to enjoy strong momentum on the road to creating an end-to-end system for audio and video.

Only 20th Century Fox has yet to commit to Dolby Vision on home releases. See below for an overview.
