Films in Dolby Vision
Every film lover has special memories of going to the cinema. The picture that pulls you into the cockpit of Luke’s X-Wing in Star Wars: A New Hope as it approaches the Death Star. The colour that bursts from the jungle in Jurassic World: Dominion, full of lush vegetation and picture-perfect dinosaurs. The dramatic contrast of Roma and its black-and-white photography telling a story that is anything but black and white.

You can get the ultimate Dolby experience at a Dolby Cinema, but don’t worry if you can’t make it you can still bring the best parts of the cinema home with Dolby Vision, using any compatible TV screen or device.

Cinema comes home
Films are a visual medium. The better the picture, the better the experience. If you’ve ever seen a film with poor production or bad special effects, you might have thought it looked fake. The poor quality of what you were seeing took you out of the film. On the other hand, do you remember a film that seemed so real that you thought you were there? A clear, balanced picture, with captivating colour, darker darks and bright brights, all put you in the scene. When paired with an immersive audio experience, like Dolby Atmos, you have entertainment you can feel.
When a film is made, the key thing for the filmmakers is to get the story on the screen looking just as they envisaged it. That means getting the colour, contrast, brightness, and luminosity (glow) just right, so you will catch every detail and be drawn into the film. Now, all that hard work and care can come home and give you the best possible visual experience, thanks to Dolby Vision.
All you need to enjoy films with Dolby Vision is a device enabled with Dolby Vision — from a mobile device to a TV to a home cinema projector, there are lots of choices — and film in Dolby Vision. That film could be from a streaming service, a digital file you purchased, or a disc. Dolby Vision acts as an embedded instruction manual for hardware screens to display the most true-to-life version of the scene they possibly can. Without any action required on your part, changes in light and dark between shots — whether subtle or substantial — are nuanced to keep viewing easy on your eyes.
