The Xbox Series X and Series S have turn into the initially gaming consoles to incorporate Dolby Vision soon after Microsoft enabled help for the technologies. Promising an enhanced gaming encounter, the tech giant initially revealed the Dolby Vision enhancement for the most current Xbox consoles last year — alongside help for Dolby Atmos.
The update, Microsoft claims, will provide “full-spectrum visuals”.
Microsoft mentioned more than one hundred next-generation HDR titles that had been optimised for the two consoles would help Dolby Vision. These incorporate Halo Infinite, which earlier this year received Dolby Atmos gaming help.
Microsoft and Dolby also collaborated to bring enhanced visual encounter with Dolby Vision to classic Auto HDR and HDR10 games. Microsoft mentioned user encounter for thousands of games would be enhanced on Television models with Dolby Vision help.
Nearly all native HDR titles, which includes Gears 5, Psychonauts 2, and Ori, have been optimised for Xbox Series S and Series X.
Microsoft mentioned Dolby Vision would bring more vivid colours to screens and support gamers spot hidden clues and see enemies hiding in the shadows. Expanded contrast and superior clarity in each dark and vibrant scenes obtainable via Dolby Vision will make the transition achievable, Microsoft mentioned.
Games in Dolby Vision provide enhanced colour, brightness, detail, and contrast by automatically mapping to any show that supports the proprietary technologies. It is also compatible with features such as automatic low-latency mode, DirectX Raytracing, and Variable Refresh Rate of the Xbox Series S and Series X. Microsoft and Dolby have also tied up with Television makers to collaborate on enabling Dolby Vision at 120Hz refresh price.
Microsoft is taking Japanese electronics giant Sony head on with the introduction of Dolby Vision gaming on its Xbox Series X and Series S. The hugely well known PlayStation 5 from Sony, the Xbox’s largest rival, does not come with help for Dolby technologies but supports classic HDR10.
