Yet another reason why Oppo will be the only players I’ll be buying: now they’re the first to let you play discs with Dolby Vision. A new firmware update unlocks the feature for the company’s current 4K Blu-ray player lineup (UDP-203 and UDP-205). Dolby Vision is Dolby’s take on HDR, which is supposed to provide up to 40 times the brightness, deeper blacks (not sure how that works, unless there is something darker than 0 black), and expanded contrast. …the day you can play discs with the feature has arrived, thanks to Oppo Digital’s latest firmware update that adds Dolby Vision capability to the company’s UDP-203 ($549) and UDP-205 ($1299) players. The first two Blu-ray discs supporting Dolby Vision format were announced a bit over a month ago (Despicable Me 1 & 2). With Dolby Vision, viewers get HDR video that’s highly optimized for compatible displays. The format uses dynamic metadata to tell the TV how to modulate its backlight and maximize contrast. This helps the TV produce the highest quality imagery it is capable of.
