LG’s C1 and G1 OLED TVs have received a firmware update that makes it possible to display video signals in 4k with Dolby Vision and a refresh rate of 120Hz. That’s a signal that the Xbox Series consoles with preview firmware can produce, for example.

Tech editor John Archer states on Forbes that this means that the TVs are the first to be able to process these signals. Before this update came out, HDR games were limited to 4k at 60Hz as far as Dolby Vision support is concerned. With the combination of 4k, 120Hz and Dolby Vision, many televisions show a cross in the checklist of the Xbox Series consoles.

The update is distributed over the air to the TVs, but you don’t necessarily have to wait for their turn if they are willing to download the update from the LG website and put it on the TV via a USB stick. to install. It concerns version 03.11.23.

A lack of support for 4k120 with Dolby Vision was a particular problem for owners of the Xbox Series consoles. This output mode has been available in the Alpha Ring for several months now. The consoles are also able to provide games that do not support HDR at all with the Auto HDR function. That also goes in Dolby Vision. This HDR standard from Dolby Labs is not yet available outside the test group; HDR10 is then the only available standard.

The update is available for C1 and G1 OLED TVs in all sizes offered, from 48″ to 83″. The 2019 and 2020 OLED models also have 120Hz displays, Dolby Vision support and HDMI 2.1 connections, which theoretically means they can also get this function. Whether that will happen is unknown.
