This week’s release of Blade Runner: The Final Cut on Ultra HD Blu-ray not only presents the film in 2160p for the first time at home, it also offers a Digital UHD copy from UltraViolet.
What’s more, the 4k format from Vudu features the combo of Dolby Vision with Dolby Atmos, both major upgrades from the video and audio formats of Vudu’s HDX format. In effect, most 4k TVs that support HDR will get enhanced color range through the Dolby Vision specification.
Dolby Atmos, providing immersive multichannel audio including sound that can be heard from overhead, is available on systems that support the format.
