Dolby’s Vision and Atmos will be included in More Affordable Devices

Dolby’s Vision and Atmos will be included in More Affordable Devices

Dolby announced its Vision and Atmos products at CES 2018. There is always something unique about the devices that carry Dolby’s visual and audio tech. For the first time, Dolby Vision is available in a PC, thanks to Lenovo’s Thinkpad X1 Carbon and X1 Yoga.

Windows 10 already includes support for Dolby Atmos, so the new Thinkpad now completes the pair. Speaking of Atmos, a of companies rolled out audio that featured the tech, including Sony. Sony typically announces new Atmos home theater at CES and this year one of those was the HT‑Z9F soundbar.

The Atmos will simulate surround sound just from the soundbar while watching video, audio contents. You definitely still get the same effect of spacial audio, but with only one speaker. What’s more, those devices that offer Dolby Atmos are now way more affordable. In fact, one of Sony’s new models will retail for $600. You used to have to spend $1,000 or more to get your hands on Atmos gear in the not-too-distant past.

Dolby Vision has been available on pricey sets for a while, but it’s begun popping up on more affordable displays as well. New TVs from TCL and Hisense are a couple options that shouldn’t completelybreak the bank when they’re available later this year. The models revealed at CES 2018, look quite impressive, even positioned close to an LG OLED TV.

Dolby also touted more supported content for 2018. From live sports to movies and streaming, expect the Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos stamp to appear more places you watch stuff. And while Atmos has already popped up on Xbox with a few supported titles (like Gears of 4 and Assassin’s Creed), the company says that it expects most big-name games to be supported in 2018. It’s always good news when you are moving through battle zones and the audio realistically reacts to your position.
