Atlona Adds Dolby Vision Capability for OmniStream AV-over-IP Platform

Atlona has announced the availability of its Dolby Vision feature option for the OmniStream AV-over-IP platform. This feature enables 4K Dolby Vision-enhanced video, at 60Hz with 4:2:2 chroma subsampling and 12-bit color resolution, to be distributed over 1 Gigabit Ethernet data networks.

OmniStream with full Dolby Vision support will be showcased alongside other Atlona innovations in stand 5-U120 at ISE 2019, taking place Feb. 5-8 in Amsterdam.

Dolby Vision is an industry leader in terms of its potential to deliver the best possible HDR viewing experiences when full 60 frames-per-second Ultra High Definition resolution is delivered, but solutions for distributing 4K video with Dolby Vision HDR have been limited. Other compressed or uncompressed AV over IP systems as well as HDBaseT systems may offer compatibility with HDR10, HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) or Dolby Vision up to 30 frame-per-second.

According to Atlona, OmniStream’s algorithm enables full preservation of Dolby Vision HDR metadata while maintaining “visually lossless” image encoding and decoding, providing interoperability with Dolby Vision HDR streaming media players, Ultra HD Blu-ray devices, gaming systems and displays.

Available for all existing and new OmniStream installations, this downloadable license expands the HDR content that can be distributed over OmniStream networked AV systems. OmniStream products also feature license-free, 60 fps compatibility with HDR10 for OTT (over-the-top) streaming services and Ultra HD Blu-ray, as well as HLG for 4K HDR broadcast services.
