Two more studios using Dolby for UltraViolet encoding

With the launch of UltraViolet CFF for downloads, titles from Twentieth Century Fox and Anchor Bay will feature premium surround sound from Dolby. Digital entertainment services including CinemaNow, Target Ticket, and Vudu will deliver UltraViolet CFF-encoded TV shows and movies in Dolby Digital Plus from these studios.

Dolby cited recent research conducted by Parks Associates that 50 percent of consumers in the United States indicated that sound is very important to them when watching movies on their smartphones and tablets.
