Dolby Laboratories, Inc. and HiSilicon Collaborate to Bring Dolby Vision HDR to Ultra High-Definition Video Chipsets

Dolby Laboratories, Inc. 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, including Android platform-based STBs, with the HiSilicon Hi3798C V200 chipsets. This will be the first global Ultra HD STB chipset solution to support Dolby Vision high-dynamic-range (HDR) technology. Based on the powerful CPU and GPU capabilities of Hi3798C V200 chipsets and the Dolby Vision HDR solution, HiSilicon can provide a secure ultra-low power Android platform with impressive TV experiences for 4K entertainment and gaming services.

Dolby Laboratories, Inc. and MediaTek Announce Collaboration to Offer Dolby Vision 4K UHD System-on-a-Chip Technologies

Dolby Laboratories, Inc. and MediaTek announced a collaboration to offer Dolby Vision 4K UHD system-on-a-chip (SoC) technologies for high-dynamic-range (HDR) TVs, Ultra HD Blu-ray players, and digital media adapters (DMAs). Dolby Vision augments the fidelity of Ultra HD and HD video signals for over-the-top (OTT) online streaming, video on demand (VOD), broadcast, Ultra HD Blu-ray, and gaming applications. Dolby Vision VS10 universal HDR playback solution supports both dual-layer and single-layer Dolby Vision streams and other HDR formats based on the SMPTE ST 2084 standard. This enables displays to take full advantage of a combination of peak brightness, local contrast, and wider color gamut; the end result is a dramatically enhanced viewing experience in the living room.

Dolby Laboratories, Inc. Announces Collaboration with Top Victory Investments Ltd. to Bring Dolby AC-4 to Market

Dolby Laboratories, Inc. announced a collaboration with Top Victory Investments Ltd. to promote the adoption of Dolby® AC-4 in its affiliate TP Vision’s televisions for broadcast systems and streaming Internet content. This collaboration follows the recent commitments from Sony Visual Products and VIZIO to promote Dolby AC-4. A powerful new audio format in the Dolby Audio™ family, Dolby AC-4 enables the most efficient delivery of premium consumer experiences to TVs and other consumer devices. Its practical, scalable, and flexible tools are built on technology and Dolby’s decades of proven know-how in the broadcast industry. Dolby AC-4 is available now for product development and is targeted for availability in consumer TVs starting in 2017. Dolby AC-4 provides new solutions for the current challenges broadcasters face—such as more-efficient delivery of high-quality experiences, alternate language versions, and services for hearing-impaired and visually impaired audiences—while providing a platform for new experiences from broadcast and Internet OTT services. As television evolves from 5.1-channel audio to new paradigms that include more personal and immersive experiences, the object-based audio capabilities of Dolby AC-4 will be essential to realizing this next generation of television entertainment.
