Dolby Laboratories Inc. and Walt Disney Studios have announced that, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, in theatres 16th December, will be available in more than 50 Dolby Cinema locations around the globe in Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision.
“The Dolby Vision and Atmos technologies beautifully showcase this amazing galaxy, accentuating the intense black of space, the colourful 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,” says Lynwen Brennan, executive vice president, Lucasfilm.
The Dolby Vision laser projection system is also featured, which uses state-of-the-art optics and image processing to deliver high dynamic range with enhanced colour technology and a contrast ratio that reportedly far exceeds that of any other image technology on the market today.
Dolby says the result of this is “a richer, more detailed viewing experience that delivers strikingly vivid and realistic images,” with the aim being to make viewers feel like they are in the movie’s world. Dolby Cinema also includes Dolby Atmos sound technology.
