Those obsessed with having a cinema-quality experience at home have a lot to look forward to this year.
Sony Pictures Entertainment (SPE) announced that more of their movies will be released in the IMAX Enhanced format in 2023, including the new Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, the upcoming Gran Turismo movie and The Equalizer 3.
All of those movies will be available in 4K HDR resolution with DTS:X premium audio, in both box sets and on streaming platforms.
“Today’s agreement underscores SPE’s belief in the value of high-quality viewing experiences that IMAX Enhanced is able to bring to discerning consumers.”
Bill Neighbors, chief content officer of Xperi, the company that owns DTS, explained that “experiencing a movie with DTS sound allows the viewer to feel as if they are a part of the story – and is a memorable experience.”
Indeed, both the picture quality and cinema-grade audio found in IMAX Enhanced are how you can best experience a blockbuster movie in your home – and the format is only getting more popular.
During CES 2023, Disney Streaming, IMAX Corporation and DTS announced that Disney+ is getting even more IMAX Enhanced this year.
Basically, you’ll be able to enjoy movies from the Marvel Cinematic Universe in IMAX Enhanced, in 4K resolution with 1:90:1 aspect ratio and DTS sound.
Those who have IMAX Enhanced certified TVs from manufacturers like Sony and Hisense will be able to enjoy movies with DTS sound at launch, as well as those who own certified AV receivers from brands like Denon, JBL or Marantz.
