The Xbox Series X test kit can play games with Dolby Vision – Gaming – News
What also can be done is that it will become clear what Atmos stands for and that it is guaranteed to stand for something.
In my experience, Dolby Atmos is position-based audio, as you can also have audio above you in addition to the horizontal plane. Well, there are phones that are also compatible with Dolby Atmos. Now you can of course hold your phone above you to experience the sound from above, but that is not what I was thinking. This is also the disadvantage of speakers that reflect sound from the ceiling: Yes, that’s in principle Atmos, but experience shows that speakers dedicated to higher height offer a better experience.
I also test it with Dolby Vision: the standard offers the most potential, but Dolby Vision anticipates little or no mention of how much it has been implemented in the product. This is partly confirmed in the article:
Fairclough reports that the feature is only available at 60Hz and uses fixed tone mapping. From his point of view, there is no clear progression compared to what was previously possible, which indicates that during this test it probably has no added value compared to the regular HDR10.
To give a good example: In Dolby Vision specifications it is possible to achieve registered material of up to 10,000 nits per square meter. But then you depend on what the tape recorder and playback equipment can do.
It is a bit like setting the body of a car at 320 km / h, while it has a 1.6 petrol engine with 180 hp, the top speed of which does not exceed 220 km / h. But yes, the body can do that. This is not good for you.
You can also see that with HDMI2.1 and the 40GB disaster. By itself, they meticulously implemented it there: the board doesn’t need better than 40GB, so it doesn’t need more than 40GB. But this is not what you would expect as a consumer.
Nice, all of these are benchmarks (plus USB and speeds), but they actually say nothing about the actual quality and that’s actually what you want (besides that these equipment can work together via this standard).
So all that HDMI, Dolby Atmos, Dolby Vision, USB and what it also tells me works together. No more, no less. This is clear and does not cover the burden, but in any case it does not lead to disappointment.
