Dolby Vision has been launched in the US and is being rolled out in Europe now. The first UHD Blu-ray players to support the Dolby Vision HDR format are Oppo’s UDP-203 and UDP-205. Four Hollywood studios are supporting Dolby Vision on UHD Blu-ray and the first discs have just been released. Currently LG, Loewe, TCL, Hisense, Philips (USA) and Vizio offer Dolby Vision TVs.

Analyst Comment

To get Dolby Vision on the display, every part of the signal chain needs to support the technology. You need a movie that’s correctly graded, recorded on a Blu-ray disk and with the right player and TV set. That’s because it relies on metadata that has to go from end to end. (BR)
