But that's not the only big news when it comes to Star Trek Blu-rays. Paramount Home Media Distribution will, on June 14, unveil the studio's first two releases in the new 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray format, namely Star Trek  (2009) and Star Trek Into Darkness. The next evolution in home entertainment, 4K UHD offers four times the resolution and more than double the number of colors available with full HD. Further, 4K UHD delivers exceptional vibrancy and contrast through High Dynamic Range technology, which reveals hidden details and shades of color that more closely mimic real life. Star Trek (2009) and Star Trek Into Darkness, which have been digitally remastered for the 4K UHD releases, will also benefit from their Dolby Atmos soundtracks having been remixed specifically for the home theater environment.
