Sony readies Dolby Vision HDR update across some 4K TVs

It's been a reasonably long time coming, but Sony has finally confirmed it's ready to confirm an upgrade to Dolby Vision across some of its current 4K TV range.

Details are due to be announced next month, but the main point is: the company's ready to adopt the HDR technology and bring itself broadly into line with its competitors in the feature-crazy TV market. First due to get the update are A1, XE93, XE94 and ZD9 models.

We enjoyed a preview of the Award-winning Sony KD-55A1 OLED running Dolby Vision content at Sony Europe HQ in Weybridge yesterday - and while we (of course) reserve judgement until we can appraise the upgrade in our testing rooms, the picture certainly had a lot to recommend it.

Once Sony is ready to roll this upgrade out, we'll report back with all the details.
