Lionsgate Signs Up For Dolby Vision, Atmos

Lionsgate became the fifth movie studio to back Dolby VisionHDR and the seventh to back Dolby Atmos surround for home entertainment titles.

Neither Dolby nor Lionsgate specified whether the titles would be available as streaming titles, disc-based titles or both. The companies, however, said Lionsgate plans to release a slate of Dolby Vision and Atmos titles in the coming months.

The other studios that have announced support for Dolby Vision for home entertainment are Warner Bros., MGM, Universal Pictures Home Entertainment, and Sony Pictures, Dolby said. To date, however, 35 streaming titles are available with Dolby Vision only from Warner Bros. Pictures through the Vudu streaming service, Dolby said. Of those titles, 14 also feature Dolby Atmos mixes. No 4K UHD Blu-ray discs are currently available with Dolby Vision, nor have 4K Blu-ray players with Dolby Vision been announced by hardware suppliers.

In audio, more than 60 titles with Dolby Atmos are available in the U.S. on Blu-ray and 4K Blu-ray discs, with more than 100 titles available globally, Dolby said.

The studios offering Atmos on home entertainment titles are Universal, HBO, Paramount, Warner Bros. and Sony, Dolby said.
