UK gets its first Dolby Vision HDR 4K Blu-ray disc authoring facility
The London office of global localisation company Pixelogic is to become the first facility in Europe to offer Dolby Vision 4K UHD Blu-ray disc authoring.
Pixelogic has enhanced its proprietary UHD Blu-ray authoring software to enable the implementation of the high dynamic range (HDR) format Dolby Vision, and created a suite of tools to manage the HEVC video compression, metadata and QC workflows required for Dolby Vision.
Towards the end of last year, the first 4K UHD Blu-ray discs with Dolby Vision were released, and Pixelogic has already created more than 20 of them through its LA offices, including BBC Worldwide’s first Dolby Vision UHD Blu-ray title, Earth: One Amazing Day (pictured).
Explaining its move to bring Dolby Vision 4K UHD Blu-ray authoring to London, Holger Hendel, SVP and managing director of EMEA for Pixelogic said: “Since the launch of our Dolby Vision capabilities last year, we have received increasing interest from our European customers to produce Dolby Vision products.”
“We have met that demand by adding those capabilities to our London facility so that we can provide the appropriate level of service and attention they require and deserve.”
Ron Geller, vice president of worldwide content relations, Dolby, added: “Pixelogic will help ensure the image and sound of feature and episodic content with Dolby technologies are delivering the premium experience filmmakers intend. We are confident in their level of service and technological execution.”
