Dolby Vision Testing

February 3, 2020

What is Dolby Vision?

Dolby Vision™ transforms your TV experience with dramatic imaging—incredible brightness, contrast, and color that bring entertainment to life before your eyes. By fully leveraging the maximum potential of new cinema projection technology and new TVs’ display capabilities, Dolby Vision delivers high dynamic range (HDR) and wide color gamut content. The result is a refined, lifelike image that will make you forget you are looking at a screen. Current consumer video delivery and cinema standards are based on the limitations of old technologies and require altering the original content before it can be reproduced for playback—dramatically reducing the range of colors, brightness, and contrast from that captured by modern cameras. Dolby Vision changes that, giving creative teams the confidence that images will be reproduced faithfully on televisions that feature Dolby Vision. Dolby Vision is a natural complement to Dolby Atmos®. It gives movies, television, and game creators the tools they need to create truly immersive experiences that preserve the creative intent and let consumers take advantage of modern hardware. For manufacturers of televisions, game consoles, personal computers, and mobile devices, Dolby Vision unlocks the full capabilities of their hardware and creates a premium experience that can increase the use and enjoyment of these products.
