'Transformers: The Last Knight' is Paramount's first Dolby Vision UHD Blu-ray

16 Aug 2017 | Rasmus Larsen |

With Paramount onboard, almost all major Hollywood studios are now releasing movies in the Dolby Vision HDR format. The studio’s first UHD Blu-ray title in the format is 'Transformers: The Last Knight'.

Dolby Vision + Atmos

Paramount last month committed to bringing out movies in Dolby Vision. The video format is one of several HDR formats and despite being proprietary and royalty-based, Dolby is enjoying strong momentum across TVs, Hollywood, and cinema.

'Transformers: The Last Knight' is Paramount’s first UHD Blu-ray release in Dolby Vision HDR. The movie is the fifth chapter in Michael Bay’s Transformers universe.

Besides Dolby Vision, the disc includes a soundtrack in Dolby Atmos. The movie will also be released on HD/3D Blu-ray as well as online two weeks ahead of the disc release.

To enjoy the disc in Dolby Vision you need a compatible TV. A version of the movie in HDR10 format is also stored on the disc as mandated by the UHD Blu-ray standard, meaning that Dolby Vision is stored as an enhancement layer on top.

'Transformers: The Last Knight' will be available on disc on September 26.

All major Hollywood studios support Dolby Vision in cinema. Only 20th Century Fox has yet to commit to Dolby Vision on home releases. See below for an overview.
