    • 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.

    • See Entertainment Come Alive

      Dolby Vision delivers striking highlights, brilliant colors, and deep darks never before seen in the cinema or on standard television screens.

      • The HDR Revolution

        Dolby Vision™ is advanced high dynamic range (HDR). A new capability in today's cutting-edge televisions, HDR complements HD and UHD (4K) displays. Rather than increasing resolution, as 4K does, HDR focuses on the brightness, contrast, and color of the image. While these benefits have been talked about in the past, one look at a new HDR display reveals a powerfully enhanced TV image.

        Dolby Vision display technology is leading the HDR revolution. Find out how it's different.

      • The New TV Standard: Dolby Vision

        With the expanded luminance of Dolby Vision, each scene is created with a range of colors much closer to what the eye actually sees.

      • The Development of Dolby Vision

        Instead of just adding more pixels with UHD (4K), we're making each pixel better by sending content mastered in Dolby Vision to a Dolby Vision enabled display.

      • The Key Differences

        Dolby Vision is a powerful cinema technology that now transforms your TV experience. It brings entertainment to life with dramatic imaging—incredible brightness, color, contrast, detail, and dimensionality. And with the advanced capabilities in Dolby Vision, you'll see there's more to the story than generic HDR can reveal.

        Makers of movie and TV entertainment encode or "master" their content in a special HD format to take advantage of new technology in your TV. Two HDR formats are available for televisions today: Dolby Vision, engineered by Dolby, and generic HDR, also known as HDR10. The television needs to have the right HDR technology to play content mastered in these formats.

        Advanced Image

        Dolby Vision imaging combines 12-bit color depth with intelligence that maximizes your display's performance. Movies and TV shows mastered in Dolby Vision and played on a Dolby Vision enabled TV pop with incredible brightness, color, contrast, detail, and dimensionality that 10-bit generic HDR can't match.

        Universal HDR Playback

        Dolby Vision enabled TVs play both Dolby Vision and generic HDR content. As artists increasingly choose the flexibility and precision of Dolby Vision, you'll be able to watch newer Hollywood blockbusters and streaming TV series, as well as older content. Owners of TVs with generic HDR won't be able to get the benefit of content mastered in Dolby Vision.

        True Cinema Technology

        Dolby Vision leverages HDR technology that comes from the world's most advanced cinemas. Our engineers helped create the SMPTE ST 2084 standard that defines HDR for cinema, and we work with trusted partners to bring that immersive cinematic experience to the home.

        Scene Optimization

        Dolby Vision adjusts brightness, color, and contrast automatically for each scene. Dynamic metadata carries information that maps every image to your TV display's capabilities, so you see more of what the content creator intended. Static metadata in generic HDR is set once for the entire piece of the content and can't adjust the picture for your display.
