Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, Universal Pictures, and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Choose Dolby for the Sound of UltraViolet Content

Dolby Laboratories, Inc., a pioneer in advancing the science of sight and sound to make entertainment more engaging and lifelike, today announced that Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, Universal Pictures, and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will encode thousands of movies and television programs in the UltraViolet™ Common File Format (CFF) using Dolby® Digital Plus™, the premium audio standard for mobile and connected entertainment.

UltraViolet provides consumers with a unique way to conveniently enjoy their movies and TV shows. By taking full advantage of the benefits of the cloud, consumers can download and stream their entertainment collections anytime, anywhere for viewing on TV screens, personal computers, tablets, and mobile phones. Once the UltraViolet CFF launches later this year, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, Universal Pictures, and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will deliver thousands of movies and TV series with Dolby Digital Plus sound. Already the choice of leading online movie services that deliver surround sound, Dolby Digital Plus ensures that UltraViolet consumers can enjoy the experience the artist imagined. Dolby Digital Plus is currently enabled across more than one billion devices in the marketplace.

“The movies and television shows from Sony Pictures, Universal Pictures, and Warner Bros. are legendary,” said Ron Geller, Vice President, Worldwide Content Relations, Dolby. “These studios continue to create compelling entertainment that delights audiences around the world. Dolby is proud to serve as their trusted partner for UltraViolet CFF and apply our nearly 50 years of audio and video innovation to help ensure that the quality of the UltraViolet enabled entertainment experience exceeds every consumer expectation.”

The UltraViolet CFF improves the efficiency of the content-supply chain while greatly enhancing how consumers experience their favorite entertainment. It also empowers consumers to move or copy a downloaded CFF file directly among UltraViolet CFF-compatible media player apps and hardware devices from multiple brands, allowing them to play the downloaded movies they own on their mobile, tablet, PC, and connected devices without having to download the content multiple times.

“We are pleased to be partnering with Dolby to create an optimized content experience for UltraViolet consumers,” said Richard Berger, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment’s Senior Vice President, Global Digital Strategy and Operations. “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.”

“We work with partners who believe in putting audiences right in the center of the action as much as we do,” said Joseph Cates, Senior Vice President, Technology, for Universal Pictures. “Universal is proud to work with Dolby to deliver immersive sound wherever it matters to people.”

“We’re always exploring new ways to advance the home entertainment experience for our consumers,” said Darcy Antonellis, President and Chief Technology Officer, 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. We’re very excited to offer this in the coming year.”

Dolby to Help Lead Growth of UltraViolet

As a reflection of its leadership in the development of UltraViolet, Dolby was elected to serve on the Management Committee of Digital Entertainment Content Ecosystem (DECE), the consortium of more than 80 companies behind the new home-entertainment standard. In this role, Dolby will contribute its considerable expertise in the science of sensational clarity to advancing UltraViolet both technically and in the marketplace.

“Dolby’s contribution to the design, launch, and ongoing evolution of UltraViolet has been tremendous,” said Mark Teitell, General Manager, DECE. “Given the investment of expertise and resources that Dolby has made to help drive UltraViolet, this acknowledgement of the company’s leadership role within DECE is richly deserved.”
