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.
