Xbox One 1810 firmware brings Dolby Vision support for streaming

It will work with Netflix at launch.

Xbox One S and Xbox One X are getting Dolby Vision support in the new 1810 update, now available for Preview members. The company has listened.

Dolby Vision is a proprietary end-to-end High Dynamic Range (HDR) format.

While it's noisy, ridiculously huge, and quite ugly, you can't play on Xbox One (2013) without it. The process uses expanded brightness to improve contrast between dark and light aspects of an image, bringing out deeper black levels and more realistic details in specular highlights - like the sun reflecting off of an ocean - in specially graded Dolby Vision material.

For now, it appears that Xbox One S & X Dolby Vision support will be limited to Netflix streaming. Dolby Vision enables select TVs to take HDR up a notch with scene-by-scene precision and accuracy versus standard HDR which uses one setting for the entire movie/show you are watching.

They already support HDR for streaming and 4K Blu-ray playback, but those with TVs capable of supporting Dolby Vision have had their enjoyment slightly curbed through the lack of compatibility. HDR in general is a major step forward in picture quality as significantly expands the luminance and color range compared to previous SDR video (Standard Dynamic Range). "An Australian version of English" will also be supported. Such TVs include LG OLED and LCD TVs, Loewe OLED TVs, Sony OLED and LCD TVs, Vizio LCD TVs, and others. "As well as an Xbox, you'll also need a TV with support for Dolby Vision and access to content that can take advantage of it".

The system update is now only available to those in the Xbox Insiders preview program and will roll out to those users "in the coming weeks". "Not all the features will show up immediately but will begin to roll out in the coming weeks".
