Dolby Vision launches on Xbox Series consoles

First available to Xbox Insiders for testing

Dolby Vision launches on Xbox Series X/S

Larry Hryb a.k.a “Major Nelson”, Director of Xbox Live Programming has announced that Dolby Vision has now been rolled out to Xbox Series X and S consoles for those who are apart of Xbox Insider Alpha Ring.


For those who don’t know what Dolby Vision is, Dolby explains:


“Dolby Vision lets gamers see more of their favorite games while leveling up gameplay with brighter highlights, sharper contrast, and more vibrant colors. Epic worlds – such as lush rainforests, desolate war zones, or neon futuristic cities – are brought to life in more color. Dolby Vision can make it easier to see opponents hiding in the shadows and spot hidden clues through expanded contrast and better clarity in both light and dark scenes. And because Dolby Vision games automatically map to any display with Dolby Vision, you’re always seeing the best possible picture available. This means… no more sliders to adjust your picture settings.”


It was first announced for the Series X/S last September, making it the first console to support the HDR format. Information on exactly which games will be utilising Dolby Vision into their graphic engines will soon be revealed.


Only those with TVs that support Dolby Vision can enjoy the Dolby gaming experience. To see if your TV is capable, your Series X/S must be updated with the latest firmware. Then check into the 4K TV Details screen, which provides checks for Dolby Vision at 4K/60Hz and 4K/120Hz. Dolby is working with TV manufacturers in making the rollout seamless as possible in conjunction for the Series X/S mass launch.


However it must noted that this week's rollout is only for Alpha Ring Insiders, as it must be tested before being available to all.


Does that sound awesome Xbox fans?
