Warner Brothers to Introduce Dolby Vision Titles in Early 2015

By |


Dolby-Vision.jpgDolby and Warner Brothers have teamed up to deliver 4K content in the Dolby Vision format to compatible TVs in early 2015. Dolby Vision is an imaging technology that allows both content creator and display manufacturer to deliver product with higher dynamic range, resulting in an image with greater brightness and contrast. The first three titles will be The Lego Movie, Into the Storm, and Edge of Tomorrow, which will presumably be available in some type of streaming format to upcoming Dolby Vision-enabled TVs.�

From Dolby Laboratories
Dolby Laboratories, Inc. and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment today announced that the first slate of 4K titles mastered in the new Dolby Vision format will include recent blockbusters like Edge of Tomorrow, Into the Storm, and The Lego Movie, scheduled for release in early 2015.

Dolby Vision, a complement to both HD and 4K, is a new imaging technology that helps content creators and television manufacturers deliver a dramatically different visual experience--astonishing brightness, incomparable contrast, and captivating color--that brings entertainment to life before your eyes via over-the-top (OTT) online streaming, broadcast, and gaming applications.

The initial lineup of titles has been remastered on the FilmLight Baselight system, for the first time using Dolby Vision, and includes greater brightness in a fuller palette of rich new colors and deeper nuanced darks never before seen on TV. Dolby and Warner Bros. are collaborating to prepare the initial slate of titles in time for the launch of Dolby Vision technology enabled TVs, as well as a pipeline of additional catalog and new release titles throughout 2015.

An end-to-end solution, Dolby Vision works from content creation to distribution and playback, and it is already receiving support from critical points in the ecosystem including A-list Hollywood directors, executives at major studios, OTT service providers, TV manufacturers, and operators worldwide.

About Dolby Vision
Dolby Vision delivers a dramatically different visual experience--astonishing brightness, incomparable contrast, and captivating color--that brings entertainment to life via OTT online streaming, broadcast, and gaming applications.

Even though most content is captured and rendered using technology that produces the colors and brightness of real life, much of that richness is lost by the time it gets to your living room. That's because current color-grading standards are based on the limitations of current television technologies and require that the content be altered to match their display performance--dramatically reducing the range of colors, brightness, and contrast.

Dolby Vision changes that, giving creative teams the freedom to use the full gamut of colors, peak highlights, brightness, and contrast, with the confidence that those will be reproduced faithfully on televisions that feature Dolby Vision technology.
