MediaKind Announces Integration of Dolby Vision HDR Technology
MediaKind has integrated Dolby Vision HDR technology within its encoding portfolio. Dolby Vision will be supported within MediaKind Packaging, MediaKind Encoding Live, and MediaKind’s Aquila streaming and Aquila Broadcast Solutions providing any resolution from SD to UHD.
This integration will enable users of MediaKind’s Encoding solutions to deliver content in Dolby Vision, providing high-quality video experiences for broadcast, operator, streaming, and cloud-based services across a wide range of consumer devices and form factors.
“We are delighted to announce the integration of Dolby Vision within our Aquila consumer delivery solutions and encoding product portfolio,” comments Boris Felts, head of products, MediaKind. “As more UHD channels come to market, service providers, broadcasters, and operators will require the latest HDR encoding technology advancements to enable and realise the immersive potential of their content. Support for Dolby Vision means we can further enhance our encoding solutions to meet the needs of our customers and provide them with the ability to deliver premium, next-generation experiences to the market faster than ever before.”
Dolby Vision is an advanced imaging technology that combines HDR with wide colour gamut capabilities to deliver an ultra-vivid picture quality. When compared to a standard picture, Dolby Vision can deliver highlights that are up to 40 times brighter, and blacks that are 10 times darker, resulting in a lifelike image that will make the viewer forget they are looking at a screen.
