Universal Studios Home Entertainment has announced it will bring four new catalog faves to HD DVD this July, including the hits 'In Good Company,' 'Scent of a Woman,' 'Nutty Professor II' and 'Streets of Fire.'

The quartet will each receive the 1080p/VC-1 treatment along with Dolby Digital-Plus 5.1 surround tracks (at 1.5mbps), while 'Nutty Professor II' will also enjoy a full Dolby TrueHD 5.1 track (48kHz/16-bit).

Complete supplemental details are not yet announced, but each is expected to include all of the same supplements as their standard-def counterparts.

All four titles are schedule to street July 24, where they will join the blockbuster 'The Bourne Identity,' which Universal previously announced for HD DVD release last month.

The studio has set a suggested $29.95 list price for each of the titles in this July 24 wave.
