Dolby Vision Making Inroads at Fox After Disney Acquisition?

A byproduct of Disney’s acquisition of Fox may be more Dolby Vision titles, if the most recent announcement of a Fox home entertainment release is any indication.

Previously, Fox was a supporter of HDR 10+, a no-license-fee competitor to Dolby Vision, but Fox’s recently announced Alita: Battle Angel will be available in 4K UHD Blu-ray with HDR 10, HDR 10+ and Dolby Vision, according to press release. Dolby Vision and HDR 10+ employ dynamic metadata, allowing the picture to adjust scene by scene.

“Twentieth Century Fox aims to deliver the best possible viewing experience for consumers,” according to a Fox statement provided to Media Play News on the subject. “The formats for each title release are determined on a case-by-case basis in partnership with the filmmakers.”

Disney has been a supporter of Dolby Vision.

One thought on “Dolby Vision Making Inroads at Fox After Disney Acquisition?”

  1. “Disney has been a supporter of Dolby Vision” – Huh!? The only Disney/Pixar/Marvels/Lucas titles to be released in UHD Blu-ray with Dolby Vision were Black Panther and Star Wars: The Last Jedi. All others have been released, unfortunately, in HDR10 (not even HDR10+). Only the digital versions support Dolby Vision, so viewers are left choosing between inferior bitrates for Audio and Video (on digital streaming) or inferior color palette (on physical UHD media).

    It’s time for the media to start calling Disney out on their inferior home releases rather than be saying they “support Dolby Vision” while leaving out such critical details.
