Media services company Pixelogic Jan. 10 announced its London facility is the first in Europe to offer Dolby Vision UHD Blu-ray authoring with its proprietary Dolby Vision authoring tools.
Since launching the service last year, Pixelogic has delivered more than 20 UHD Blu-ray Disc titles in Dolby Vision authored in its Los Angeles office, including BBC Worldwide’s first Dolby Vision UHD Blu-ray title, Earth: One Amazing Day.
Other titles include Despicable Me and Despicable Me 2 for Universal Pictures Home Entertainment, Lionsgate’s Saban’s Power Rangers, and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment’s Resident Evil: Vendetta.
“Dolby has been a terrific partner and together we look forward to furthering our commitment in enabling our mutual customers to deliver superior products to the marke,” Holger Hendel, SVP and managing director of EMEA for Pixelogic, said in a statement.
As the developer and licensor of the Blu-ray print authoring system, Pixelogic has enhanced its proprietary UHD Blu-ray authoring software to enable the implementation of Dolby Vision. In addition, Pixelogic has created a suite of tools that efficiently manage the HEVC video compression, metadata and QC workflows required for Dolby Vision.
“Pixelogic will help ensure that the image and sound of feature and episodic content with Dolby technologies are delivering the premium experience filmmakers intend,” said Ron Geller, VP of worldwide content relations, at Dolby.
