Gaming with Dolby Vision? Xbox Insiders are now testing Dolby Vision on the Xbox Series X and S consoles

Summary

Xbox Insiders who are members of the Alpha ring are now able to test Dolby Vision support on the Xbox Series X and S consoles. Currently the consoles only support HDR10, but Dolby Vision support has been known since before the consoles were released. Additionally, Dolby is working with TV manufacturers to enable Dolby Vision support in 4K at 120Hz.

"We’ve known Microsoft’s current generation of Xboxes would support Dolby’s HDR standard since before the consoles’ release. Last September, Dolby announced that they’d be “the first consoles to support the Dolby Vision HDR format with dynamic metadata for gaming.” Sony’s PS5, meanwhile, currently does not support Dolby Vision." - The Verge

 

My thoughts

As someone who only plays console games very casually it isn't something I'm very interested in, but it's interesting nonetheless. This isn't the first time Dolby Vision has been available for Alpha members; in March the feature rolled out to Alpha users, but it was removed after a few days.

Hm, what about Microsoft's auto HDR thing they were talking about? Is that related to Dolby Vision in any way or entirely separate thing?

Microsoft pushing features hard. I hope they don't get beaten as mercilessly as they were in the previous console generation
