Dolby Laboratories, Inc. Announces Partnership with VUDU
Apr 13 15
Dolby Laboratories, Inc. announced a partnership with VIZIO to bring Dolby Vision to the consumer market through the VIZIO. Reference Series 65" and 120" Ultra HD Full-Array LED Smart TVs. With an initial slate of Warner Bros. 4K Ultra HD Dolby Vision titles confirmed for distribution via VUDU, Walmart's video on demand service, combined with play back capabilities on the VIZIO Reference Series, consumers will be able to experience the power of Dolby Vision in their living room. Dolby Vision breathes life into images by providing viewers with peak brightness, local contrast, and a full range of colors that more closely mimic what the human eye can see. The technology combines a wider color gamut and high dynamic range, to revolutionize the viewing experience both in cinema and on TV. Dolby Vision augments the fidelity of UHD and HD video signals for over-the-top (OTT) online streaming, broadcast, and gaming applications. With Dolby Vision, content is much more nuanced, powerful, and distinct: sunsets sinking deep into the horizon, bursts of fire and explosions, and the darkest shadows are pronounced to provide a strikingly vivid and realistic imaging experience like no other. As the first-ever High Dynamic Range-enabled Ultra HD TV, the VIZIO Reference Series was built pixel-by-pixel, pushing the boundaries of brightness, color and contrast with Dolby Vision. The new VM50 Ultra HD engine, a dedicated Ultra HD motion and picture-processing engine, provides enhanced clarity in every Ultra HD image. Unlike most TVs, which can only reproduce a limited color gamut of Rec 709 - a standard that has been in place since 1990 - the VIZIO Reference Series features an Ultra-Color Spectrum which widens the color gamut; rendering colors closer to what the human eye can see, something never before possible on a home TV screen. To deliver Dolby Vision content in 4K Ultra HD, Dolby has partnered with VUDU, Walmart's video on demand service for movies and television, and one of the pioneers of high definition digital movies and TV.
