Two more studios will support the format.  

Dolby has announced that Universal and MGM both plan to offer new release and catalog titles in Dolby Vision. The studios now join previously announced supporters including Sony, Warner Bros., and Netflix.

"With 4K UHD content becoming more prevalent, we are excited to provide consumers an elevated home-viewing experience and showcase our content with Dolby Vision HDR," said Jose Gutierrez, Executive Vice President, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios.

"We could not be more pleased to be working with Dolby to deliver to consumers the ability to watch Universal movies in the most spectacular format possible," said Michael Bonner, Executive Vice President, Digital Distribution, Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. "Together, we are committed to ensuring that home entertainment consumers can enjoy the richest, most remarkable movie-watching experience yet with Dolby Vision."

Dolby Vision is an end-to-end video technology that uses high dynamic range and wide color gamuts to create and display content with superior brightness and contrast, resulting in more realistic highlights and shadow detail on supported TVs. The process is currently integrated into VIZIO's Reference Series displays and will also be supported by TCL's X1 QUHD TV, and LG's upcoming SUPER UHD TVs and 2016 OLED TVs.

Specific Universal and MGM Dolby Vision titles and delivery platforms have not been announced yet.
