Early Details of Universal Studios' November Wave of HD DVDs

Universal Studios Home Entertainment has announced Pride & Prejudice on HD DVD, this November 13. This title may offer some indication that Universal Studios may be abandoning Dolby Digital-Plus 5.1 altogether, for original audio tracks, favoring Dolby TrueHD 5.1 lossless audio instead. This is a logical move considering that all standalone HD DVD players released to date are capable of decoding and playback 5.1-channels of Dolby TrueHD audio.

The main feature will be presented in 1080p High Definition Widescreen 2.35:1 video with Dolby TrueHD 5.1 (English) & Dolby Digital-Plus 5.1 (French) audio options. English [SDH] and French subtitle options are provided.

Bonus materials include:
  • Audio Commentary with Director Joe Wright
  • Conversations with the Cast
  • Jane Austen, Ahead of Her Time
  • A Bennet Family Portrait
  • HBO First Look: Pride & Prejudice
  • The Politics of Dating
  • The Stately Homes of Pride & Prejudice

Stay tuned for further updates...
