Rogue One: A Star Wars Story to be Released in Dolby Vision & Dolby Atmos
TAXI... to to the airport.
Dolby and Disney Studios have announced that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story – in theatres on December the 16th in case you forgot – will be available in more than 50 Dolby Cinema locations around the globe.
Dolby Cinema is a premium cinema offering for movie-goers that combines cutting edge image and sound technologies with high-end design but our nearest one is in The Netherlands, alas. Still, it might provide some encouragement for the Blu-ray release, if and when Disney finally jumps on-board the Ultra HD Blu-ray wagon.
“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, with its attention to every detail from cinematography and visual effects to musical score, deserves to be seen in the cinema with the best sound and image capabilities available,” said Doug Darrow, Senior Vice President, Cinema Business Group, Dolby. “When audiences go to see this movie in Dolby Cinema locations around the world, they will be participating in something special – an experience that only Dolby can deliver.”
“Like all Star Wars movies, Rogue One is a truly cinematic event, and the Dolby Cinema experience will immerse audiences deeper into the story,” said Lynwen Brennan, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Lucasfilm. “The Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos technologies beautifully showcase this amazing galaxy, accentuating the intense black of space, the colorful worlds, the dynamic sound effects and epic score – all the hallmarks of a Star Wars film that we can’t wait to share with audiences in Rogue One.”
Dolby Cinema features the Dolby Vision laser projection system, which uses state-of-the-art optics and image processing to deliver high dynamic range with enhanced colour technology and a contrast ratio that far exceeds that of any other image technology on the market today, Dolby claims.
Dolby Cinema also includes Dolby Atmos sound technology, which moves audio around the cinema, even overhead. The combination of Dolby technologies with the design and comfort of the Dolby Cinema is designed to make audiences feel closer to the onscreen action.
