Blu-Ray HD Upping the Ante: Classic ‘Psycho’ film gets a 5.1 upgrade
Yes, we know Blu-Ray has done wonders for classic older films in terms of clarity and the like, but with the upcoming release of the Hitchcock thriller “Psycho”, it goes a step further with the addition of a brand new remastered 5.1 Dolby mix added for the very first time.
Not only will it look amazing for its 50th anniversary edition, scheduled for release on October 19th, but Universal’s BluWave Audio postproduction team and third party Audionamix have teamed up to really make a subtle and pretty amazing 5.1 Dolby Surround remix only for Blu-Ray release. This is one example of HD and BR teaming up to make a classic movie even better, and more examples will be coming down the road, no doubt.
We salute Universal for this decision, and await further classic movie upgrades in the near future (Ben-Hur, anyone?).
