Dolby Labs and the Walt Disney Studios today announced ‘Dolby Vision’ — a new form of projection technology — will debut with Disney’s Tomorrowland (May 22, 2015) at Dolby Cinema locations. The Tomorrowland run will be followed by Pixar’s Inside Out (June 19, 2015) and The Jungle Book (April 15, 2016), with additional titles to be announced. According to the announcement, ‘Dolby Cinema begins with the filmmaker’s vision — using the full storytelling capabilities that Dolby offers in image and sound production to transform the way movies are made. Combined with state-of-the-art image, sound, and acoustic capabilities, the movie comes alive to deliver cinema in its purest form.’
Dolby Cinema combines Dolby’s Atmos (which coincidentally premiered with Pixar’s Brave) and the Dolby Vision projection system, which uses state-of-the-art optics and image processing, to deliver high dynamic range with enhanced color technology and a contrast ratio that far exceeds that of any other image technology on the market today. ‘The result is a richer, more detailed viewing experience that delivers strikingly vivid and realistic images that make viewers feel like they are in the movie’s world.’
