Dolby Vision video streaming revealed initiatives to expand through Xbox One S and Xbox One X consoles in the preview system update 1810, which began its premiere on Wednesday, Xbox Wire reports.
Dolby Vision is a high dynamic range (HDR) format for 4K TVs that provides improved contrast, brightness, and color to supported TVs by optimizing the image, “frame by frame.”
It is supported by streaming services such as Netflix, iTunes, Vudu and Amazon Prime Video.
Currently, Xbox One consoles support Dolby Atmos. Adding Dolby Vision to the consumer strategy increases the company’s vitality and promotes the product as an option for consumers looking to use their home console as a multimedia center, especially as Sony’s PS4 consoles lack the specified format.
As reported by Xbox wire, the system update is currently only available to those in the Xbox Insiders preview program and will roll out to those users “in the coming weeks.”
Users may obtain the Dolby Vision benefits through a Dolby Vision compatible TV, in addition to a Premium Netflix subscription.
Presently, Dolby Vision demonstrates no initiative to support 4K discs.
Xbox One S and Xbox One X will support Dolby’s HDR format from July 11, but only for streaming video.
The update also provides support for Xbox Avatars on the dashboard and improved accessibility options, providing support for Spanish, Portuguese, Polish, Swedish and Dutch languages in Narrator.”An Australian version of English” will also be supported.
