Dolby and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment have announced plans to use the new Dolby Vision mastering process for the release of 4K Ultra HD titles for “a variety of home entertainment distribution partners.” The titles will be the first mastered to deliver Dolby Vision HDR, both for streaming services and physical media.

Dolby Vision is a proprietary embellishment of HDR, which can be carried by 4K UHD Blu-ray for decoding in equipped TVs. As yet, only Vizio in the US offers compatible screens. The partnership implies that Dolby Vision compatible Sony 4K TVs might not be that far away.

“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,” says Richard Berger, Sony Senior VP.

Described as an end-to-end solution, Dolby Vision can be incorporated from content creation to distribution and playback, and claims support from a variety of Hollywood creatives, studios and OTT service providers.

 “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,” says Curt Behlmer, Senior VP at Dolby.

As yet, Sony hasn’t revealed a launch catalogue for UHD Blu-ray, although it has been mastering both current and back catalogue titles for 4K distribution channels.
