Huawei and Dolby Laboratories are partnering on a new set-top box (STB), said to be the first to be integrated with Dolby Vision HDR technology.
The Huawei Q22 IPTV STB is similar to AppleTV and Amazon Fire TV, but claims to improve the TV experience by delivering better brightness and contrast as well as a palette of rich colours.
“It is tremendously exciting to see Huawei deliver the first IPTV set-top box with Dolby Vision support, adding to the ever-expanding list of Dolby Vision ecosystem partners,” said Giles Baker, senior vice president, Consumer Entertainment Group, Dolby Laboratories.
“Providing our customers with a spectacular HDR entertainment experience at home is a priority for Huawei,” added Guipei Chen, vice president, Huawei Video Domain.
“Working with Dolby to incorporate Dolby Vision into our set-top box product allows us to enable IPTV content providers to deliver content with dramatic imaging, incredible brightness, breathtaking contrast, and a fuller range of colours to Dolby Vision enabled TVs.”
