All 2017 Philips 4K Ultra HD 6000, 7000 and 8000 series televisions will support Dolby Vision out of the box, the companies announced. The Philips 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player BDP7502 will support Dolby Vision on Ultra HD Discs later this year via a software update.
“HDR is a significant advancement in picture technology that delivers tangible improvements in image quality, but Dolby Vision goes further and transforms an HDR picture into something that is truly stunning,” said Karl Bearnarth, executive vice president, sales and marketing, P&F USA, the exclusive North American license partner for Philips consumer televisions and home video products. “Dolby Vision is not just greater dynamic range and wider color gamut; it is also smarter pixels that deliver the best possible viewing experience for consumers.”
“We are excited to partner with P&F USA to provide consumers more ways to experience Dolby Vision today,” said Giles Baker, senior vice president, consumer entertainment group, Dolby Laboratories. “Dolby Vision transforms your TV experience with dramatic imaging that goes above and beyond generic HDR, delivering a spectacular experience that brings entertainment to life before your eyes.”
