Dolby Laboratories and LG Electronics have announced that the LG 2016 OLED TVs and Super UHD TVs will feature Dolby Vision technology.
Dolby Vision combines two capabilities – high dynamic range (HDR) and wide colour gamut – intended to deliver brighter highlights, more light-to-dark contrast, and colours ‘never before seen on TV.’
Users will have access to UHD Dolby Vision mastered content via Netflix.
LG’s OLED TV, because of its deeper black levels and infinite contrast ratio, is capable of delivering an HDR experience at lower peak-brightness levels.
“With Dolby Vision, we’re finally able to push the limits of contrast ratios and colour gamut while redefining the picture quality of LG TVs,” said Brian Kwon, executive vice president and CEO, LG Home Entertainment Company. “We’re equally proud to be the first manufacturer to make high dynamic-range television available at a variety of prices through our premium LCD TV lineup.”
LG’s 2016 OLED TVs, including 77-, 65-, and 55-inch 4K HDR OLED TV sets (models 77/65 G6 LG Signature OLED TV and 65/55 E6) and LG’s UH9500, UH8500 and UH7700 Super UHD TVs will all be equipped with Dolby Vision technology.
“Dolby Vision transforms the television experience and when people see it, they’re blown away,” said Kevin Yeaman, president and CEO, Dolby Laboratories. “Through our partnership with LG, we’re able to expand the reach of this revolutionary technology to a global audience.”
