When it comes to televisions, everyone is trying to find a way to improve quality. Dolby is no different in that race, except that Dolby is changing something that has yet to be changed. Dolby is working on changing the pixel- making them brighter and better than before. What does this mean and how will it work? How is it different from others?
First, it is different because most other displays just improve pixels and the refresh rate. Dolby is working on changing something deeper- the pixels themselves thus making the pixels even better than ever.
Dolby Vision wants to close the gap between what is filmed and what we view- these are two different things. High-end video cameras have the ability to film an enormous amount of detail, color, depth and clarity. This means that what is videoed is gorgeous and almost perfect but what comes across on the movie screens or television screens is not quite what was filmed- there is a lot lost in transition. Dolby wants to move 4K technology to the next level by creating televisions that not only can view 4K movies in but showcase these films in near perfect quality. Dolby Vision is supposed to help creators and manufacturers of television pass along the video that is bright, colorful and detailed- just as if you were there. Dolby Vision changes the Ultra HD video and turns it into a stream that keeps the original content. Dolby Vision will not only be something added to televisions but technology that the film industry will need to adopt. It is about changing and moving forward and introducing a better way of viewing your favorite shows and movies.
Dolby Vision will increase the color palette, reduce the image quality as the signal is broadcasted and will brighten the picture while increasing the contrast. This will create a lifelike picture. Dolby Vision will optimize the contrast of the televisions as well. Dolby Vision will increase contrast considerably thus creating the illusion that you are looking out a window and not a television screen.
Color saturation is another important component. With Dolby Vision, the increased brightness, white balance and contrast will brighten up the color giving you a true picture. With HD, the color still is not quite right. See below for the comparison: The flower on the right is in Dolby Vision while the other is in True HD that most televisions are produced with.
There is a downfall for the Dolby Vision technology. There is increased bandwidth and that adds cost. Dolby Vision will offer a standard mode, a HD signal and a modified signal that gives you the full Dolby Vision true-to-life video quality.
While Dolby Vision offers a great picture quality- one that is near perfect- it is still not quite ready for every television or Movie Theater. The Dolby Vision is a great way to add quality to any picture and I hope that in the future this technology will not cost past the purchase of the television as it does now. I love the new technology that is coming out in televisions, movies and on smartphones. Maybe one day soon, Dolby Vision will be something offered on smartphones.
