In addition, all LG’s flagship Super UHD TVs will continue to support Dolby Vision in 2017. This includes models SJ9500, SJ8500, and JS800 Super UHD TVs.
“High-quality imaging and audio are essential elements of the TV viewing experience,” said Brian Kwon, president, LG Home Entertainment Company. “By incorporating Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos into our premium OLED TVs, the first TV of its kind, we are able to offer consumers amazing realism across both image and sound that is vivid, nuanced, and powerful.”
