Brighter images and realistic tones; Dolby Vision offers it all
Every time you walk into an electronic store, you will come across the phrase Dolby Vision. It has improved people’s viewing experience by optimising the way their TVs deliver HDR picture quality. Today Dolby Vision is not just limited to your TV, but it is also setting its foot in the smartphone industry. Many iPads and smartphones use Dolby Vision like the iPhone 12.
So, what is Dolby Vision and how does it improve image quality? If you do not understand what Dolby Vision means or how it works, then you’ve come to the right place.
What is Dolby Vision?
HDR is a video technology that presents pictures with a wider range of colours, brightness and contrast, allowing them to look more natural on an HDR-enabled display. Dolby Vision takes things one step further. It is a version of HDR that is designed to preserve a lot more information that can flow through from the original content creation, at a film studio to that content's arrival on your TV or mobile device. This information is called metadata and it carries the brightness information for every frame of a film or TV show, so the TV knows exactly how to display pictures throughout the whole movie. In other words, Dolby Vision makes your content look brighter and more well-defined.
