D-Box and Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment have teamed up to offer D-Box motion control on select Disney Blu-ray Disc titles, starting oddly enough with The Game Plan starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. The full press release is below.
Press release: D-BOX Technologies Inc. announced today that it has closed a licensing agreement with Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment to feature D-BOX MOTION CODE on select Blu-ray Disc releases. D-BOX MOTION CODE will initially be featured on WDSHE’s “The Game Plan,” which will be available in high-def only on Disney Blu-ray Disc on January 22, 2008.
The addition of the D-BOX MOTION CODE to the high quality picture and sound of the Blu-ray format will transport movie-viewers in the comfort of their homes to a new dimension and let them be part of the movie. Of course, only those homes equipped with D-BOX motion generation systems will enjoy the full benefit of the Blu-ray Disc-embedded with D-BOX MOTION CODE.
“This is a very special time for D-BOX, as our technology will be used by another one of the largest movie studios worldwide,” stated Claude Mc Master, President and Chief Executive Officer of D-BOX Technologies. “As a Contributor member of the Blu-ray Disc Association, we also want to show our strong support for the high definition Blu-ray format. We are very proud of having Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment on board as it will undoubtedly accelerate the penetration of our technology worldwide and will significantly enhance our efforts to become a world standard in the entertainment industry.”
“With the amazing picture and sound quality of our High Definition Blu-ray titles, D-BOX MOTION CODE Technology is the perfect addition to further engage viewers in an immersive experience,” added Gordon Ho, Executive Vice President of Worldwide Marketing, Creative Content and Business Development for Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment.
