Actor Jack Krasinski’s recent movie, A Quiet Place, stressed silence as a means of survival against extraterrestrial creatures that hunt by sound.
Now, the “The Office” alum is upping the volume in a second season turn as a CIA analyst in “Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan,” which begins streaming on Prime Video Aug. 31.
Dolby Laboratories and Amazon announced that the series will be available in both Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision HDR. The combined Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision experience will initially be available on certain Dolby Vision TVs and Dolby Atmos enabled audio devices.
Dolby Vision claims to deliver contrast, color highlights that are up to 40 times brighter than standard TV quality, and blacks that are 10 times darker. When combined, Dolby says the lifelike images and sound “leap from the screen” to make entertainment experiences “truly spectacular.”
“Amazon is committed to delivering immersive and compelling content to our Prime Video members around the world,” Greg Hart, VP of Prime Video, said in a statement. “Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision will enhance the action-packed scenes in ‘Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan’and make viewers feel like they are at the center of the story.”
“Dolby enables spectacular audio and visual experiences that take your favorite entertainment to the next level,” said John Couling, SVP, commercial partnerships, Dolby Labs. “Through our growing work with Amazon, we can now bring more lifelike experiences to Prime members.”
