Momentum is growing behind the Dolby Vision HDR standard, as Oppo finally releases its Dolby Vision firmware update for the UDP-203 and UDP-205 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray players.

The first Dolby Vision encoded 4K discs, the Despicable Me series, are now on sale. Dolby Vision is currently supported on select LG and Sony UHD TVs. LG is also launching a Dolby Vision UHD player, the UP970.

Dolby Vision uses dynamic metadata for frame-by-frame optimization of HDR.  The promise is enhanced contrast and a fuller palette of rich colours. Dolby Vision has been widely adopted as an HDR mastering workflow by major studios, and has enjoyed a growing raft of theatrical releases.

“The addition of the Oppo Blu-ray player to the Dolby Vision ecosystem is a major milestone that will provide expanded choice and accessibility for consumers,” said Roland Vlaicu, Vice President, Consumer Entertainment Group, Dolby Laboratories. “With Ultra HD Blu-ray, we are able to scale faster to meet the growing demand for Dolby Vision content globally.”

“Delivering reference picture quality and a premium viewing experience has always been the core mission of Oppo's disc player products. We are thrilled to work with Dolby to incorporate Dolby Vision into our UHD disc players,” said Jason Liao, CTO of OPPO Digital. “The home theatre experience is even more lifelike and engaging with the astonishing brightness, contrast, and colour provided by Dolby Vision.”?

Owners of UDP-203 and UDP-205 models will receive an online prompt to update the player automatically.
