Dolby Vision HDR now on Amazon Video
Bosch and Sony movies available in the US
Dolby Labs together with Amazon have confirmed that the second season of Amazon original series, Bosch, as well as a selection of films are now available in Dolby Vision High Dynamic Range (HDR) on Amazon Video. At least if you live in the US.
Amazon Video joins a couple of other streaming services – Netflix and VUDU – in using Dolby’s flavour of HDR.
“The Dolby Vision ecosystem is garnering momentum, affirming that the best way to enjoy stunning content with expanded dynamic range and ultra-vivid colours is with Dolby Vision,” said Curt Behlmer, SVP, Content Solutions and Industry Relations, Dolby Laboratories. “With the increased number of Dolby Vision enabled TVs now in market, Amazon’s commitment to deliver Dolby Vision content to consumers marks another leap forward in providing viewers around the world with access to exceptional movies and original content that come to life on screen.”
“We’re thrilled that starting today customers have access to titles, including our binge-worthy Amazon Original Series, in Dolby Vision HDR,” commented Jim Freeman, Vice President of Amazon Video. “Today is just the beginning. We will continue to expand our selection, adding more movies and TV series for our customers to watch and enjoy in the premium picture quality of HDR.”
In addition to Bosch, Hollywood ‘favourites’ from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment: The Smurfs 2, After Earth, Men in Black 3, Hancock, Salt, Pineapple Express, Fury, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Chappie and Elysium are available to purchase in Dolby Vision for all customers on Amazon Video.
