Can my Bolt+ stream Dolby Vision encoded content from, say, VuDu?
Nope the Bolt doesn't do any HDR or even 4K resolution for that matter.
It will never do Dolby Vision though because that requires a specific chip set.
VUDU UHD - Compatible Devices List
Yes, for devices that will display DV encoded discs a chip is required. I'm not sure for STREAMING from the Internet. I'm pretty sure the top tier Rokus don't have a DV chip in them but can stream Dolby Vision media. (But I could be wrong.)
As of right now Vudu DV is only supported with there software on certain TV's. No Streaming Devices. Most likely the bolt when Vudu gets off it's ass will support UHD and HDR10 from Vudu
Hmm, okay maybe there is no DV chip per se but here's Vizio CTO talking about building DV into there sets. A lot of what he talks about is the processing required to display the image but in the last paragraph he does say:
I just don't think we'll see DV in the Bolt line. Maybe HDR10 if TiVo decides it's important to their product lineup. Hard to imagine they ignore it forever... Also can confirm the Roku line is HDR10 only. I purchased a Premiere+ briefly to use with my Vizio P series.
I doubt right now HDR10 apps have anything to do with Tivo.. Amazon, Netflix and Vudu are very slow and picky about which devices are getting that support right now. The PS4 Pro is still waiting on Amazon 4K apps/Vudu and Netflix HDR support. The Xbox one S just got Vudu UHD and Amazon UHD
Thank you for your reply..., and understanding my question.
Yeah, I just saw that on my Xbox however Amazon doesn't make UHD/HDR material very evident if at all. Netflix is the best in this regard though there are differences between Xbox One S's Netflix app versus the Bolt+'s.
BTW, I finally got my free copy of a Dolby Vision encoded version of Mad Max: Fury Road to be displayed using my TV's Vudu's app and however jaded I may be, I must say that it looks stunning.
No on Amazon you have to dig for the 4K shows... Although on my 2015 Samsung TV they just updated the app so the HDR badge is more visible but it is only on there shows right now
There is differences between the Netflix App on my TV/PS4 Pro and Tivo also.. Even between the Vudu app on my TV and PS4.. These guys suck at consistency
There was talk in the Vudu forums that a UHD app coming to Tivo was coming soon.. But they just started to support devices other than Roku and Vizio... The LG Line and 2016 Samsung TV apps just got released
I thought the Bolt did Netflix 4k, just not HDR?
Poorly worded, I was talking about Vudu only
