It seems the PS5 is lacking both Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos – What Hi-Fi?

, the answer given is “yes, PS5 will support the HDR10 spec”.
If you’re eyeing up the new PS5 as a film player in addition to a games device, we’ve got bad news: it appears that it does not have assistance for both Dolby Vision video and Dolby Atmos sound.In a seemingly
extensive new FAQ on the PlayStation Blog, under the question “does PS5 assistance HDR10?”, the answer given is “yes, PS5 will support the HDR10 requirements”. There’s no reference of Dolby Vision here or anywhere else on the page– until you get to the remarks area, that is, where great deals of readers are regreting its lack.
It’s a similar story for Dolby Atmos. Under the concern “which audio formats does PS5 assistance?”, a number of formats are noted, consisting of Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio, however Dolby Atmos and DTS: X are conspicuously absent.We ‘d be lured
to be optimistic and hope that Sony’s chosen just not to list those 3D audio formats independently as they’re brought by other formats that are noted (Dolby Atmos is provided by Dolby TrueHD or Dolby Digital+, for instance), but Sony specifies that all of the formats the PS5 supports max out at either 5.1 or 7.1 channels, seemingly eliminating Atmos and DTS: X altogether.
