Dolby Vision has become the most popular mastering standard for modern TV productions. Netflix, Disney, Warner Bros, Amazon, VUDU and now Apple have all chosen Dolby as their format of choice. This course is aimed at Freelance Colorists who would like to gain full proficiency in the Dolby Mastering process.
