Master your game in Dolby Vision

Dolby Vision HDR brings incredible brightness, contrast, and color to your games for a more intense, immersive, and engaging experience on Dolby Vision TVs, laptops, and monitors — and creates your HDR10 and SDR outputs in a single unified pipeline.

 

What is Dolby Vision?

Leveraging our history elevating the visual experience in the cinema, Dolby Vision combines two powerful technologies — high dynamic range (HDR) and wide color gamut — with an ecosystem of Dolby Vision TVs, laptops, and monitors that deliver unseen levels of color and contrast to ensure that players experience your world exactly how you imagined it.

Push the boundaries of color and contrast

Dolby Vision gives you a new, expanded realm of ultravivid color, striking brightness, dramatic contrast, and lifelike detail that transport players into the world of your game. Even compared to generic HDR, Dolby Vision gives you a broader, more realistic palette of color and contrast to create stunning visuals.
