Microsoft is collaborating with Dolby to provide Atmos and Vision tech, for two years, exclusively for its next-gen Xbox series X/S consoles. An official post from the Microsoft blog stated that both Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision would be held in reserve for Xbox consoles through a private partnership until 2023.
Since the dispatch of the Xbox Series X and Series S a year ago, the Atmos surround sound has effectively been accessible through HDMI on TV models and soundbars and, for purchase, by means of Dolby Access for headphones. The enhanced HDR mode Vision will be actuated over the span of the year and is presently being tested inside the Xbox Insider Preview adaptations.
As a feature of Dolby Gaming, the emphasis is on vision as a contrast to classic High Dynamic Range (HDR). The innovation guarantees a more brighter picture, enhanced black levels, and a color depth of up to 12-bit. Viable and compatible equipment is needed for both Dolby features. TVs, soundbars, home theater frameworks, A/V beneficiaries, or headsets should unequivocally uphold the guidelines.
It is expected after the French announcement that Microsoft and Dolby will continue to uphold their partnership and further news on the subject will be available in a few days.
