From Dolby
Dolby Laboratories, Inc. and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment have announced plans to use the new Dolby Vision mastering process for the release of 4K Ultra HD titles by a variety of home entertainment distribution partners, delivering high-dynamic-range (HDR) imaging with a wider range of contrast and more vibrant colors. The availability of SPHE titles in Dolby Vision for home entertainment platforms marks a revolutionary step forward for enthusiasts and content channels worldwide.

Dolby Vision, a complement to 4K Ultra HD, is a new imaging technology that helps content creators deliver a dramatically enhanced visual experience--astonishing brightness, incomparable contrast, and captivating color--and also bring the next wave of innovative entertainment to consumers via next generation physical disc and digital distribution platforms.

"We continue to be enthusiastic about the growing consumer appetite for next-generation 4K Ultra HD content. With Dolby Vision imaging technology, we can now master our movies with the highest-quality visual experience for distribution to consumers' homes," said Richard Berger, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Digital Strategy and Advanced Platforms, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

An end-to-end solution, Dolby Vision can be incorporated from content creation to distribution and playback, and has already received support from others in Hollywood, including A-list directors, executives at major studios, and OTT service providers.

"Dolby Vision shines a bright new light on Sony Pictures Home Entertainment's compelling new releases and distinguished catalogue" said Curt Behlmer, Senior Vice President, Content Solutions and Industry Relations, Dolby Laboratories. "Consumers who purchase SPHE movies that have been mastered in Dolby Vision are able to feel the full visual drama of lifelike images unfold in the comfort of their living room, exciting their senses with an entirely new entertainment experience."

SPHE plans to release a growing slate of Dolby Vision 4K Ultra HD titles in the coming months.
