Studios Opt for Dolby Sound in UltraViolet Releases8 Jan, 2013 By: Erik Gruenwedel
Dolby Laboratories said Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, Universal Pictures and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment have agreed to encode digital movies and television programs released in the UltraViolet Common File Format (CFF) with its Dolby Digital Plus audio standard designed for mobile and connected entertainment.
UltraViolet CFF makes it easier for consumers to move or copy downloaded files directly across UltraViolet-compliant devices or applications, without the need for additional downloads or bandwidth.
The studios just like Dolby sound.
“Sony Pictures strongly believes that audio is an integral part of the entertainment experience, and as a leader in premium audio, Dolby is an ideal partner to deliver that immersive aural experience,” said Richard Berger, SVP of global digital strategy and operations with SPHE.
“We’re always exploring new ways to advance the home entertainment experience for our consumers,” said Darcy Antonellis, chief technology officer for Warner Bros. Technical Operations. “Dolby Digital Plus will deliver the audio quality they demand while providing a convenient way to enjoy content across numerous devices through UltraViolet.”
