LG TVs with the Apple TV app will also gain support for Dolby Atmos

This week, we announced that some TV models from LG won the app Apple TV, thus having access to all the original contents offered by Ma.

Now, more good news for anyone who has one of these TVs: a spokesman for LG informed the FlatpanelsHD that support for Dolby Atmos (both in the Apple TV app and using the AirPlay 2, to pass the contents of the iPhone / iPad to the television) arrive via software update "later this year".

Dolby Atmos was developed to give a three-dimensional effect to the sound, which is especially cool in movies and series. Instead of being restricted to channels, sounds can be precisely placed and moved in three-dimensional space. Such technology is also supported by set-top box Apple TV.

It is worth noting that LG was the first manufacturer to support Dolby Vision proprietary technology from Dolby that competes with HDR, achieving higher brightness levels and the ability to process more colors in different depth fields in the Apple TV app.

The table below gives a good idea of ??how different technologies are supported in the Apple TV application, depending on where it is used:

Apple TV (set-top box) ? ? Dolby Vision ?
LG TVs ? ? Dolby Vision ? (coming soon)
Samsung TVs ? ? HDR10 ?
Roku TV ? ? HDR10 ?
Fire TV ? ? HDR10 ?

No specific date has been given for the arrival of support for Dolby Atmos; It is also not known whether such support will be offered on all LG TVs that have the Apple TV / AirPlay 2 application or if it will be restricted to some models. Still, good news.
