Dolby and HiSilicon announced a collaboration to offer Dolby Vision™ 4K UHD system-on-a-chip (SoC) technologies for Ultra HD set-top boxes (STBs) for the DVB, IPTV, and OTT markets. This will be the first global Ultra HD STB chipset solution to support Dolby Vision high-dynamic-range (HDR) technology.
Dolby Vision is a transformative technology for imaging that delivers a dramatic visual experience — astonishing brightness, incomparable contrast, and captivating color — that brings entertainment to life via OTT online streaming, broadcast, and gaming applications. Dolby Vision VS10 offers unique value by combining the ability to play back Dolby Vision content as well as other HDR formats based on the SMPTE ST 2084 standard through one integrated playback solution. This enables a high-quality HDR experience on products ranging from entry level to high end by leveraging the capabilities of the respective hardware as much as possible.
