Universal Digital Movies Now Include Dolby Vision (HDR) & Dolby Atmos

dolby vision dolby atmos logosSeveral new titles from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment now include HDR-encoded video as well as advanced audio with Dolby Atmos. The studio’s home media titles utilize Dolby Vision for High Dynamic Range images, one of the two most popular industry standards, the other being HDR10.

New digital titles that feature HDR include “The Huntsman: Winter’s War,” “Lucy,” “Oblivion,” and “Lone Survivor.” The movies are available to purchase from Vudu for $29.99 each.

However only two of those titles,“Lucy” and“Oblivion,” feature Dolby Atmos soundtracks. Dolby Atmos will only play on sound systems that support the format, otherwise, the audio will be played in Dolby TrueHD or the next highest quality.

Dolby Vision is Dolby’s specification for High Dynamic Range (HDR) content that increases color depth and allows more details in shadows and highlights that were not possible before.

Dolby Atmos is a new immersive, 3-dimensional sound format used in cinemas and at home through the expansion of Dolby TrueHD on Blu-ray Discs.

“We’re thrilled to partner with UPHE to deliver these exciting titles with the breathtaking color, deep contrast, and striking highlights that customers have come to expect from Dolby Vision,” said Curt Behlmer, Senior Vice President, Content Solutions and Industry Relations, Dolby Laboratories.

“We’re excited to add these new Universal titles to our library and offer customers the largest selection of premium HDR movies of any digital service,” said Scott Blanksteen, Vice President of Product, VUDU.

Vudu’s UHD titles are only supported on select LG and Vizio 4k TVs, as well as the Roku 4 and Nvidia Shield TV media players. Here’s a full list of supporting Vudu UHD TVs and devices.
