Dolby and Paramount Home Media Distribution plan to master content in Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos for online streaming services and Ultra HD Blu-ray. With Dolby Atmos content to made available on regular Blu-ray discs as well. Paramount promises 'a broad spectrum of entertainment, but no specific titles for Dolby Vision releses are announced, so far.

Dolby Vision promises to 'transform the TV experience in the home by delivering greater brightness and contrast, as well as a fuller palette of rich colors', through its high-dynamic range (HDR) implementation.

Dolby Atmos enabled home theater products allow sound to move around the room in a three-dimensional way in order to create a more powerfully immersive and emotive soundscape and experience.

“Dolby has always been at the forefront of transforming the entertainment experience both in the cinema and in the home,” said Curt Behlmer, Senior Vice President, Content Solutions and Industry Relations, Dolby Laboratories. “Our agreement with Paramount signifies yet another example of our commitment to providing consumers with access to exceptional movies and original content with a life-like audio and visual entertainment experience through Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision”.

“The combination of high quality, immersive audio and dramatic visual imaging truly elevates the home viewing experience,” said Bob Buchi, President, Worldwide Home Media Distribution, Paramount Pictures. “Having diligently studied the range of offerings in next generation home entertainment technologies, we are thrilled to be working with Dolby to enhance the consumer entertainment experience as they enjoy Paramount’s movies in Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision.”
