LG TVs Add Support for Dolby Vision 4K 120Hz

2021 LG OLED TVs are the first to support Dolby Vision HDR at 4K 120Hz for smooth play while gaming.

LG Electronics USA announced that it’s the first TV manufacturer to offer the ability to support coveted Dolby Vision® HDR at 4K 120Hz for gaming on select platforms. This feature will initially only be available on LG’s top-of-the-line C1 and G1 series OLED TVs (2021 models). Additional premium models in LG’s 2021 TV lineup such as OLED Z1 series, QNED Mini LED QNED99 series and NanoCell NANO99 series TVs will also receive the update in July. Additional 2021 and 2020 TV models are also being tested for Dolby Vision gaming in either 60Hz or 120Hz. 

All 2021 LG TVs equipped with Game Optimizer also get a new Game Dashboard floating onscreen menu similar to the head-up display (HUD) found in many games. The feature lets users quickly see the TV’s settings and allows them to switch between different genres – Standard, FPS, RPG or RTS – without pausing the action. The dashboard also shows the status of other modes such as black stabilizer, low latency and variable refresh rate (VRR) are activated. To access more options, users can launch the Game Optimizer directly from the Game Dashboard.

Previously LG TVs were able to decode Dolby Vision 4K @ 60Hz. Now with double the refresh rate at 120Hz means game play should look even better, and match the native support output by Xbox Series X gaming consoles.

Although this update is great for gamers, we’re unaware of any movie or TV content that supports 120Hz refresh rates. Of course, there is plenty of Dolby Vision content on many media streaming platforms, just not at 120Hz. Nonetheless, LG TVs are now ready for it.
