More Lionsgate Titles To Be Mastered in 4k with Dolby Vision & Dolby Atmos

dolby vision dolby atmos logosLionsgate has announced a new partnership with Dolby Laboratories to include Dolby Vision video and Dolby Atmos audio in a slate of new and archived titles for home media release. The studio didn’t mention any specific titles, only that they’ll be available in the coming months.

Lionsgate has already released some movies to Ultra HD Blu-ray with Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos including Sicario (2015), The Expendables 3 (2014), Ender’s Game (2013), and The Last Witch Hunter (2015) (with DTS:X audio instead of Atmos).

Dolby Vision is Dolby’s specification for High Dynamic Range (HDR) content, and according to the company “can deliver brighter highlights, more light-to-dark contrast, and colors never before seen on TV.” HDR increases color depth and allows more details in shadows and highlights that were not possible before.

Dolby Atmos is a new immersive sound format used in cinemas and at home through the expansion of Dolby TrueHD on Blu-ray Discs. The format “allows sound to move around the room in a three-dimensional way in order to create a more powerfully immersive and emotive soundscape and experience.”

“We remain committed to being at the forefront of expanding and enriching the home entertainment experience for our audiences by incorporating state-of-the-art technologies,” said Lionsgate Worldwide Home Entertainment President Ron Schwartz.

Dolby’s commitment to enabling spectacular experiences is realized through this collaboration that combines our industry-leading audiovisual technologies and Lionsgate’s incredible pipeline of exciting titles,” said Curt Behlmer, SVP, Content Solutions & Industry Relations, Dolby Laboratories.
