• Dolby Vision at Home

    • Dolby Vision transforms your TV experience with dramatic imaging—incredible brightness, contrast, and color that bring entertainment to life before your eyes.

    • There's More to the Story with Dolby Vision

      • Astonishing Brightness

        Your picture blazes from the screen up to 40 times more brightly than on today's standard TVs.

      • Deeper Darks

        Dolby Vision™ provides a new level of richness and precision that makes every scene look more real and nuanced.

      • Expanded Contrast

        By using a much wider range of brights to darks, Dolby Vision more closely captures the look of the real world.

      • Ultravivid Colors

        Dolby Vision unlocks many more hues across the full brightness range—some never before seen on standard televisions.

      • Refined Detail

        Your display reveals the nuanced textures and patterns of our world through the precise use of expanded color and contrast ranges.

      • Enhanced Dimensionality

        The TV screen shows you more lifelike forms, with realistic shadows and crisp edges that impart a subtle but convincing three-dimensional feel.

    • Dramatically Richer

      A richer and larger palette of color for stories: every shade, every hue, every storyline is as powerful as it gets. Dramas are more dramatic, adventures more exciting, mysteries more intriguing.

      With Dolby Vision, this cityscape explodes with electric color.

    • Dramatically Brighter

      Dolby Vision delivers images up to 40 times brighter than current TVs. Highlights and images blaze out brightly from the screen without washing out color or lightening surrounding blacks.

      The blast from the fire-eater's mouth radiates with heat you can almost feel.

    • Dramatically Darker

      When scenes are dark and shadows well defined, powerful emotion and drama come through. With a larger range of blacks and sharper contrast, you not only see and feel the difference, you sense fine details.

      Details like the boxer's sweat and his tense muscles come to life in Dolby Vision.

      • The Dramatic Difference

        The Dolby Vision viewing experience begins with the creative concept. Once the visuals are captured with HDR cameras, postproduction techniques enable Dolby Vision distribution channels to deliver content to equipped TVs and cinema screens. This technology gives content creators a broader range of possibilities for expressing their creative vision. And Dolby Vision unleashes the dramatic difference.

        The Spark of a Story

        In the past, filmmakers and content creators had to limit their creativity, knowing that their vision would be truncated throughout the process. But with Dolby Vision, directors have total control over brightness, highlights, and contrast. They can now envision greater drama and deliver more spectacular experiences.

        Capturing the Complete Story

        Imaging technology has advanced greatly over the past few years, but current broadcast and cinema standards still impose limits. With Dolby Vision, creators can now tell their stories the way they intended to by capturing the exact levels of brightness and color and delivering them to you.

        Pushing the Limits of Postproduction

        After shooting, directors and colorists can expand how they treat footage in dynamic new ways. With the greatest range of color and luminance available, and the most control over contrast and exposure, creators can push the limits of what's possible during postproduction and color grading.

        Sharing the Story

        Current limitations of delivery standards for video and cinema require the original content to be reencoded before it can be distributed, reducing the quality you experience. Dolby Vision technology delivers more information and better images to the cinema or your living room, to help meet your desire for the highest-quality content. 

        Watching the Best

        The unleashed power of color and light presents a sensory experience found nowhere else except in a Dolby Vision technology enabled TV or cinema. Stories are no longer just seen, they are felt. 

      • Brightness Unbound: The Science of the Human Eye

        When your eye detects light, it signals the colors your brain sees. In the real world, the human eye also has the amazing ability to recognize a mixture of dark and light scenes.

        Brightness is measured in a unit called a nit (that is, 1 candela/m2). For example, a sunny day is measured at up to 50,000 nits. Ninety percent of people surveyed prefer a viewing brightness level of up to 20,000 nits and trillions of colors. But today's TVs offer images displayed only at 100 nits and a small subset of colors. Cinemas are also constrained with limited peak brightness and less than 50 percent of the visible color space.

        Now, Dolby Vision delivers the viewing experience that's closer to what we want to see.

        Color Unrestrained: More Than HDR

        There's been a disconnect between what's captured on camera and what can be displayed on TV and in the cinema. Constrained to 100 nits in broadcast and less than 50 nits in most movie theatres, today's standards result in reproduced images with narrow dynamic range. When the maximum brightness is restricted, brighter colors quickly become desaturated, limiting the quality of the experience.

        To alleviate this problem, Dolby Vision masters content at 4,000 nits, resulting in more detailed images with greater contrast in both the cinema and at home. Brighter highlights and more nuanced darks go far beyond what is displayed today.
