Universal details Dolby Vision titles for Vudu streaming

One of the four films to be streamed on Vudu in Dolby Vision's HDR format is Chris Hemsworth's "The Huntsman: Winter's War."


Universal Pictures Home Entertainment on Wednesday announced its first titles to be streamed in Dolby Vision: "The Huntsman: Winter's War," "Lucy," "Oblivion," and "Lone Survivor."

The four titles will be available for rental or for purchase on the Vudu streaming service and require a 4K TV with Dolby Vision capabilities in order to experience the HDR effects.

Following the announcement, there are now almost 50 Dolby Vision titles available on Vudu from Universal, MGM, and Warner Bros. Meanwhile, Amazon has 10 titles and Netflix offers three: "Marco Polo," "The Do-Over" and "The Ridiculous 6."

In CNET testing, HDR sources can deliver brighter highlights, improved details in some areas and more vivid colors overall compared with standard dynamic range sources.
