Universal Pictures Home Entertainment (USHE) Aug. 17 announced it would be the third studio to offer titles on Vudu enabled with both Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos, Dolby’s proprietary high-dynamic range (HDR) and object-based sound technologies, respectively.
Warner Bros. and MGM had previously made titles available on Vudu — the Walmart-owned streaming service — available in both Dolby Vision and Atmos. The USHE announcement brings the total number of titles enabled with the technologies to nearly 50.
Universal’s Lucy, Oblivion, Lone Survivor and The Huntsman: Winter’s War feature Dolby Vision, while Lucy and Oblivion both also feature Atmos mixes.
“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,” Curt Behlmer, SVP of content solutions and industry relations for Dolby, said in a statement. “Combined with Dolby Atmos immersive audio, Universal titles such as Lucy and Oblivion have never looked — or sounded — better.”
