Microsoft has launched a Dolby Vision test for users that are part of its Insider program. Users that are part of the Insider Program’s Alpha Ring can participate in the test now, with functionality rolling out for the rest of the program later this week.
“When you play in Dolby Vision, you unlock the most realistic and lifelike visuals the game has to offer, with brightness, contrast, color, and depth that goes beyond even traditional HDR games,” Dolby claims. The company says that Dolby Vision offers 40 times brighter highlights and supports up to 12-bit color depth on compatible TVs.
According to Forbes, Dolby is “working closely with TV manufacturers to make Dolby Vision for gaming as seamless and automatic for as many TVs as possible” when Dolby Vision is available for all Xbox Series X|S users. Dolby also plans to announce which games are making the most of the feature and incorporating it directly into their game engines.
