Vizio's new firmware for 2016 TVs improves HDR10, fixes PS4 "green tint", more

12 Oct 2016 | Rasmus Larsen |

Owners of Vizio’s 2016 SmartCast TVs had experienced issues with HDR10 compatibility, “green tint” on PlayStation 4, and other bugs. Vizio has addressed a long list of these bugs in its new firmware update for the E, M, and P series TVs.

Improved HDR10 picture quality

Vizio’s 2016 TVs have supported the Dolby Vision HDR format since launch and Vizio added compatibility for the other HDR format, HDR10, with an update in July.

After the update, some users pointed out that HDR10 picture quality was lacking in some areas. Vizio promised to fix it and with the new firmware version the release notes mentions “Improvements on HDR10 picture quality”.
