The Benefits of a Dolby Vision TV, at a Glance

We’ve written a number of posts about the technology behind Dolby Vision™ and the imaging experts who are helping to create it. But when it comes time to buy a TV, what you really care about is what you’ll see on the screen and why we believe that image will be better than other TVs you could buy.

That’s why we’ve put together the infographic below. It shows at a glance the advantages Dolby Vision TVs will have over TVs that use conventional imaging technologies: vastly improved contrast, with much brighter highlights and profound darks that still show details, combined with a far wider color gamut than conventional TVs.

One other advantage: Only Dolby Vision televisions will be able to show Dolby Vision content in its full glory. As content creators start to produce their content in Dolby Vision, we’ll see movies and television shows that have a dynamic range and depth of detail and color that reflects what you see in real life. To see that content as the filmmaker intended, you’ll need a Dolby Vision enabled TV.

This week, VIZIO announced the VIZIO Reference Series 65-inch and 120-inch Ultra HD Full-Array LED Smart TVs, which feature Dolby Vision technology. In addition, VUDU, Walmart’s video-on-demand service, confirmed that it will distribute 4K, Ultra HD Dolby Vision titles from Warner Bros., including Edge of Tomorrow, The Lego Movie and Into the Storm.
