Sony Adds Dolby Vision Support to Its X700 UHD Blu-ray Player

Sony has released a Dolby Vision firmware update for its X700 UHD Blu-ray disc player, providing compatibility with the company’s own range of TVs.

Sony Dolby Vision TVs support the HDR format natively via their in-built apps. However, external HDMI-connected devices are not automatically compatible and require their own individual software updates to work with the range, at the discretion of the device manufacturer.

Many are still yet to update their devices to function with Sony’s Dolby Vision TVs, despite the fact that the company added Dolby Vision support in the US several months ago. (Sony Dolby Vision Update Currently Restricted to Streaming Apps)
