How to burn 4K UHD Blu-ray with Dolby Vision?

Summary:

    one of the standout features of 4K UHD Blu-ray is the widespread support for Dolby Vision. Dolby Vision is a leading high dynamic range (HDR) technology that significantly enhances the visual experience by delivering exceptional brightness, contrast, and color accuracy.

Dolby Vision is an advanced HDR (High Dynamic Range) format developed by Dolby Laboratories. It enhances the visual experience by providing greater brightness, contrast, and a wider color gamut compared to standard dynamic range content.

 

Dolby Vision is one of the HDR formats supported alongside HDR10. UHD Blu-ray discs encoded with Dolby Vision offer an even more immersive viewing experience, especially when played on compatible displays and players.

 

Dolby Vision works by dynamically adjusting the brightness, contrast, and color settings scene by scene, providing more accurate and vibrant visuals. This ensures that the content is displayed as close as possible to the creator's original intent.

 

To enjoy Dolby Vision content, you'll need a few things:

 

1. Dolby Vision-Compatible TV: Your television must support Dolby Vision. Many modern high-end TVs from various manufacturers do support Dolby Vision, but it's essential to verify this before purchasing.

2. Dolby Vision-Compatible Blu-ray Player: Your Blu-ray player needs to support Dolby Vision playback. Most newer UHD Blu-ray players include support for Dolby Vision, but again, it's essential to confirm this feature.

3. Dolby Vision Content: You'll need UHD Blu-ray discs encoded with Dolby Vision content. These discs are labeled accordingly, so look for the Dolby Vision logo on the packaging.

 

When all these components are in place, you can enjoy UHD Blu-ray movies with Dolby Vision, providing a stunning visual experience with vibrant colors, deeper blacks, and brighter highlights.

 

 

 

 

How to burn 4K UHD Blu-ray disc with Dolby Vision?

 

1. Use TsMuxeR to create Dolby Vision UHD discs.

 

Currently, there are only a few uhd authoring software options available on the market for producing discs with Dolby Vision. One such software is TsMuxer, which enables the creation of UHD discs featuring Dolby Vision through its pass-through mode. However, it's important to note that TsMuxer has limitations—it can only support dual-layer Dolby Vision in the M2TS format. Despite its limitations, TsMuxer offers a straightforward operation process for producing Dolby Vision UHD discs. Let's explore how TsMuxer accomplishes this task.

 

  • Drag the file into TsMuxer. Note that it can only support dual-layer Dolby Vision. It contains two video streams, one is 4K HEVC 10bit and the other is 1080P HEVC 10bit. The 1080P video stream is the Dolby Vision layer.
  • Choose the necessary audio tracks and subtitles. If certain tracks or subtitles are not required, you can opt to exclude them. This practice helps conserve disk space, particularly with large audio formats like Blu-ray PCM, TrueHD (including Dolby Atmos), and DTS HD Master audio tracks, which can consume significant storage space.
  • Select output, you can choose to output Blu-ray folder or Blu-ray ISO.
  • Click the "Start Muxing" button to start creating.

 

 

In conclusion: TsMuxer is a free software used for creating Dolby Vision discs. Its notable advantage lies in its small file size and rapid operation due to its utilization of pass-through mode. However, it does come with limitations. Since it exclusively uses pass-through mode, it lacks compression capabilities. For instance, it's unable to condense a 60GB M2TS file into a BD50 disc. Furthermore, TsMuxer cannot handle single-layer Dolby Vision (profile 8) MKV and MP4 files. It is primarily suited for processing M2TS files extracted from UHD discs.

 

2. Use Yuhan 4K UHD Creator to create Dolby Vision UHD discs.

 

Yuhan 4K UHD Creator is robust authoring software tailored for 4K UHD content creation, boasting comprehensive support for Dolby Vision technology. It offers two distinct processing modes: Passthrough and Transcode.

 

In Passthrough mode, the software seamlessly handles dual-layer Dolby Vision (Profile 7) for M2TS files, ensuring rapid processing without compromising quality.

 

Meanwhile, Transcode mode facilitates the processing of single-layer Dolby Vision (Profile 8) within MP4 and MKV files. This mode is particularly adept at file compression, making it possible to condense large files, such as a 60GB MKV with Dolby Vision, into a BD50 disc without sacrificing quality.

 

Moreover, Yuhan 4K UHD Creator excels in preserving premium audio tracks like TrueHD (including Dolby Atmos), DTS HD Master, and Blu-ray PCM, ensuring an immersive viewing experience.

 

Let's take a look at how Yuhan 4K UHD Creator creates a UHD disc with Dolby Vision.
