Xbox One S & Xbox One X Support Dolby’s HDR Format For Streaming Video


Dolby Vision video streaming reached Xbox One S, and Xbox One X consoled in the preview system update 1810 which began rolling out on Wednesday, according to Xbox Wire.

Dolby Vision vs. traditional HDR

Dolby Vision is an HDR format for 4K TVs that offers enhanced contrast, color, and brightness to supported TVs by optimizing the image frame by frame.

Traditional HRD is different because once a setting is locked in, it will remain that way. It is supported by streaming services such as Netflix, iTunes, Vudu and Amazon Prime Video.

Xbox One consoled are already supporting Dolby Atmos which surrounds anyone with sound.

Adding Dolby Vision only makes them an option for those of you who are looking to use their home console as a multimedia center especially because Sony’s SP4s are yet to jump on the format as well.

The system update is available for Xbox Insiders in the preview program 

The system update is available for the moment only for those in the Xbox Insiders preview program, and it will also roll out to users in the upcoming weeks.

In order to be able to enjoy the Dolby Vision benefits, you will need a Dolby Vision compatible TV besides a Premium Netflix subscription. For now, it seems that Dolby Vision will not support 4K discs.

The update also brings support for Xbox Avatars on the dashboard and enhanced accessibility options, offering support for Spanish, Portuguese, Polish, Swedish and Dutch languages in Narrator.

For Australian users, there’s some really good news as well. An Australian version of English will also be supported.

I have been blogging and posting articles for over eight years, but my passion for writing dates back in 2000. I am especially enthusiastic about technology, science, and health-related issues. When I’m not researching and writing the latest news, I’m either watching sci-fi and horror movies or checking out places worth visiting and building deep memories for later in life. I believe in empathy and continually improving myself.
