Dolby Laboratories, Inc. announced that Paramount Pictures and Warner Bros. movies featuring Dolby Atmos(R) soundtracks will soon be available for home theater enthusiasts with Dolby Atmos enabled AV receivers and speakers. Dolby Atmos movies will be available this fall on Blu-ray Disc(TM) and through content service provider VUDU. On September 30, 2014, Paramount Pictures will release the first Blu-ray Disc to feature a Dolby Atmos soundtrack with the #1 movie of the year worldwide, Transformers: Age of Extinction. Both the Blu-ray Combo Pack and the Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack will offer a Dolby Atmos soundtrack encoded in Dolby TrueHD. Paramount Pictures will look to support additional Dolby Atmos home theater titles via online streaming and Blu-ray Disc later this year. Dolby Atmos soundtracks are fully backward compatible, meaning they'll play on traditional home entertainment playback systems.

Beyond North America, consumers will be able to experience Dolby Atmos at home theater retailers such as Sevenoaks Sound & Vision (UK), AVAC Corporation (Japan), and BIC CAMERA INC. (Japan).
