Dolby Vision for games has officially landed on Xbox, bringing Dolby’s proprietary HDR approach to a new medium. Today we’ll explore what all the fuss is about and what you need to enjoy Dolby Vision for games in your living room.
Dolby Vision is Dolby’s proprietary format for high dynamic range (HDR) video content. It’s one of a handful of formats through which you can experience brighter, more colorful, and punchier images that take advantage of the latest display technology.
HDR is now a standard feature on most new TVs, with HDR10 being the dominant “baseline” format. There are many benefits to HDR video: a wider color gamut, better shadow detail, 10-bit color, and eye-catching highlights that take advantage of the higher peak brightness on the latest compatible displays.
