LG OLED TVs Getting Dolby TrueHD Support


An incoming firmware update will enable Dolby TrueHD on the 2017 LG OLED models, with the company confirming that support for the lossless audio standard is coming to its flagship TV range.

These OLEDs were also the first TVs on the market to implement Dolby Atmos sound.

And this latest addition only makes sense.

The firmware will roll out this month, and will allow owners of these sets to play back media in the highly impressive Dolby TrueHD surround sound format, which while an optional specification on Blurays, is becoming increasingly common now.

This codec supports eight channels of 24-bit of 96KHz audio, or six channels of 24-bit 192KHz audio.

Built in decoder means that TrueHD content can be played through the TV speakers, without having to pass the audio via an AV amplifier. Should certainly help increase the popularity of acceptance of this extreme quality lossless audio format.

The latest update also includes Codec MAT support, which is basically Metadata-enhanced Audio Transmission.

This enables compatible TVs to stream Dolby TrueHD soundtracks on console games.
