This news comes on the heels of Sigma Designs’ announcement of its support to enable Dolby Vision on Smart TVs.
These commitments mean that Dolby Vision can now be enabled on multiple playback devices including, Ultra HD set-top-boxes, Smart TVs, Over-the-Top (OTT) online streaming, Ultra HD Blu-ray players and Digital Media Adapters (DMAs).
Realtek will be making available Dolby Vision-enabled ‘System-on-Chips’ for digital TVs, as well as those for set-top box solutions.
MediaTek will also be following a similar path, although its SoCs will concentrate on HDR TVs, Ultra HD Blu-ray players and Digital Media Adapters.
HiSilicon will be providing SoCs for Ultra HD set-top boxes, including Android based set-top boxes.
Dolby Vision is designed to get the most out of a TVs picture quality, by enabling it to take full advantage of a combination of peak brightness, local contrast and wider colour gamut.
