Oppo UHD BD players now compatible with Sony Dolby Vision TVs

06 Jun 2018 | Rasmus Larsen |

It has been a long journey but Oppo has finally released the firmware update that adds support for the latest Dolby Vision profile, according to Forbes. The update makes Oppo UHD Blu-ray players compatible with Sony’s Dolby Vision-enabled TVs.

The Dolby Vision mess

Sony is currently rolling out Dolby Vision support to select 2016, 2017, and 2018 TVs. These TVs are the first to use a special Dolby Vision profile that requires the playback device to handle more processing. All playback devices will therefore need to be updated, Sony confirmed earlier this year.

Apple TV 4K was the first playback device to become compatible with Sony’s flavor of Dolby Vision. Next in line was Sony’s own X700 UHD Blu-ray player. Oppo has now also released the required update for its UDP-203 and UDP-205 players.

Now we just need the rest of the manufacturers to catch up in order to, hopefully, put this Dolby Vision compatibility debacle to rest. Dolby’s HDR video format shows a lot of potential but early adopters have had to endure several issues. The unfortunate “raised black” bug continues to affect various screens / players.

Oppo recently announced that it is leaving the disc player business.

The firmware (version 60.0601B) can be downloaded here. It is currently in beta.
