How Can I Watch Dolby Vision at Home?

By XGIMI Tech - 2024-2

What Is Dolby Vision?

Dolby Vision came out in 2014. It is a set of technologies developed by Dolby Laboratories for high dynamic range (HDR) video. It covers content creation, distribution, and playback. It includes dynamic metadata that defines the aspect ratio and adjusts the picture based on a display's capabilities on a per-shot or even per-frame basis, optimizing the presentation.

Dolby Vision empowers visual creatives to add greater depth, incredible contrast, and more colors to the movies, TV shows, and games you love.

With Dolby Vision, the XGIMI HORIZON Ultra home projector delivers an optimized display, bringing every detail to life in dark and bright scenes. Elevate your viewing experience with unmatched image quality and the versatility of adjustable screen size, making the XGIMI HORIZON Ultra a top choice for immersive entertainment.

Why Do I need Dolby Vision at Home?

Dolby Vision is an advanced High Dynamic Range (HDR) technology that enhances the viewing experience at home by improving brightness, contrast, and color in video content. If you use a machine with HDR at home, you will have an immersive home theater and fantastic video game experience. Compared to traditional technology, Dolby Vision has three enhancements:

● Improved Brightness:

Dolby Vision supports higher peak brightness levels than standard dynamic range (SDR) content. This means bright areas in the video can be much brighter, providing a more realistic and immersive viewing experience.

Increased brightness allows more details to be visible in both dark and bright scenes, enhancing the overall clarity of the content.

The differences between the SDR and Dolby Vision

● Enhanced Contrast:

Dolby Vision incorporates dynamic metadata, allowing scene-by-scene or frame-by-frame adjustments to the HDR settings. This dynamic adjustment ensures the contrast is optimized for each scene, resulting in deeper blacks and brighter whites.

The improved contrast ratio contributes to a more lifelike and visually stunning image, making the content feel more three-dimensional and engaging.

The improved contrast ratio contributes to a more lifelike and visually stunning image, making the content feel more three-dimensional and engaging.

● Vibrant and Accurate Colors:

Dolby Vision supports a wider color gamut, enabling more vivid and accurate colors than standard color spaces. This expanded color range provides a more realistic representation of the content.

The technology also ensures that colors are faithfully reproduced across different devices, maintaining consistency in the viewing experience regardless of the display used.
