Vizio announced earlier this week that it will be among the first TV manufacturers to ship sets that use the Dolby Vision high dynamic range imaging technology that Dolby Labs first showcased at CES—in 2014.

In fact, the TV manufacturer showed these same 4K displays way back then, captivating attendees and critics alike. The Vizio Reference Series—to be available in 65- and 120-inch screen sizes—pack Vizio’s own V6 hexa-core processor, dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and a built-in sound bar with two satellite speakers.

With Dolby Vision intended to be the biggest selling point for these new TVs, a brief description of the much-touted technology is in order. Despite consensus among various stakeholders that HDR is the next big step for TVs, the industry has yet to agree on a standard for HDR TVs and content. Dolby Vision is one of the technologies trying to fill that void.

You might want to put off that 4K TV purchase for a few more months.

According to Dolby, this is an “end-to-end” solution meant for everyone from content creators to over-the-top (OTT) providers to TV manufacturers. Dolby Vision combines a high dynamic range with an extended color gamut to deliver more vibrant and realistic images.

A TV’s dynamic range or contrast ratio, for those who don’t know, describes the contrast between its darkest blacks and brightest whites. The higher the dynamic range and the wider the color palette, the more realistic the image tends to look.

“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.”
