Dolby Cinema-970-80

We’ve just checked out Dolby’s newest high-tech cinema in Hilversum, Holland. It’s only the second in Europe and the first to launch with the brand new twin Christie laser projectors necessary for Dolby Vision.

And the most impressive thing about it all was an empty screen.

That might sound utterly dismissive, but it’s genuinely not. The Vision demo I was treated to was seriously one of the most impressive things I’ve seen on a technological level in a cinema. It’s all about those advanced Dolby Vision projectors rocking the latest laser tech mixing wider colour gamut and high dynamic range (HDR).

These new projectors can create contrast levels far in excess of the current generation of digital projectors.

Where even the most advanced projectors are hitting contrast ratios of around 8000:1, and most standard ones around 2000:1, the Dolby Vision beamers are batting above 1,000,000:1. Count those zeros…

And that means real, deep, inky blacks.

Behind the scenes with Dolby’s new HDR TV tech | TV and Home Theater – CNET Reviews

“While the majority of the TV industry prattles on about higher and higher resolutions, few talk about improving other,

more important aspects of the TVs picture: contrast ratio and color.

Dolby, though best known for its audio technologies, has been doing a lot with video recently too.

The latest development addresses dynamic range, or difference between light and dark, for televisions.

The company says it wants to enhance not just contrast ratios, but the richness and realism of color as well.”
