'Robin Hood' is first UHD BD disc to include both Dolby Vision & HDR10+

16 Jan 2019 | Rasmus Larsen |

Regardless of whether your TV supports Dolby Vision or HDR10+, you will be able to enjoy the latest Robin Hood in a dynamic HDR format. It is the first disc to include both formats.

Dolby Vision & HDR10+ on one disc

A few dozen UHD Blu-ray discs have been released in Dolby Vision and a few documentaries have been released in HDR10+. It is still early days for premium HDR formats but 2019 should accelerate things.

The first movie to be released in both premium HDR formats on the same disc is Robin Hood.

- ”Experience four times the resolution of full HD with the 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack, which includes Dolby Vision HDR, bringing entertainment to life through ultravivid picture quality,” Lionsgate said. ”The 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack also features new HDR10+ technology.”

It is a little unclear how Lionsgate is achieving this but since Dolby Vision on UHD Blu-ray is an enhancement layer on top of the base HDR10 video file, it certainly seems plausible that HDR10+ is too.

We have previously argued that there is no HDR format war and this Robin Hood release supports our claim. The various HDR formats have different strengths. TVs, players, discs, and streaming services are also perfectly capable of supporting or carrying several formats. If none of the two dynamic HDR formats are supported by your TV or player it will fall back on the base HDR10 format.

Robin Hood is distributed by Lionsgate and is described as a “new spin on everyone’s favorite hooded hero” and an “action-packed epic adventure” starring Taron Egerton. In the US, it will arrive online on February 5 and on UHD Blu-ray disc on February 19.

The movie will also include object-based audio in Dolby Atmos – no DTS:X.

Today, TVs support either HDR10+ or Dolby Vision but the first TV to support both formats will arrive this year in the form of Panasonic GZ2000 that was announced at CES 2019 last week.
