Xbox Series X and S to Be the First Consoles Ever Featuring Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision
Xbox Series X and S will feature Dolby Atmos at launch, with Dolby Vision support being added to the system in 2021.
With the official announcement of the Xbox Series S recently, now Microsoft has nothing to hide from the fans around the world about its next-gen consoles and their key features. After revealing the full hardware specs for Series S and showcasing its performance in comparison to the current-gen consoles, now a new announcement from Dolby has revealed that Xbox Series X and S will support Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision for the first time ever.
Dolby Atmos, which is the company’s latest achievement in audio design, will be available on Series X and S at launch. Thanks to Atmos, you will be able to feel the location of the sound within the game’s world before it’s too late. The new tech will allow you to feel your distance from the source of a sound in the game, rendering a three-dimensional soundscape around your head. You can enable Dolby Atmos for any headphone, soundbar, or home theater you use. Cyberpunk 2077, Call of Duty: Warzone, F1 2020, and Gears 5 are some of the titles supporting Dolby Atmos at launch.
On the other hand, Dolby Vision is a new visualization technology that gives a better look at the screen thanks to improved contrast, deeper black color, and strong brightness. Dolby Vision brings you 40x brighter highlights, 10x deeper black levels, and up to 12-bit color depth. The technology will be available in 2021 and Xbox Series X and S will be the first consoles ever to receive the feature. Dolby Vision is supposed to go far beyond traditional HDR in giving a lifelike look to your games and screen.
Microsoft’s next-gen consoles will be hitting markets on November 10th this year. The pre-orders for the consoles will begin as of September 22nd. Xbox Series X will be available for $499 while Xbox Series S will cost you $299.
