Roku Ultra versus Ultra LT for Dolby Vision, HLG & Atmos

Jump to solution

Online comparisons don't seem to have this difference - is it true that Dolby vision, HLG and Dolby Atmos are only available with Roku Ultra and are not available with Roku Ultra LT?

False.

HLG is available with all HDR-capable models (going back to 2016).

Dolby vision is only available with the latest 2020 Ultra (model 4800).

Dolby Atmos (excluding NF) is available in passthrough mode for 4K/HDR models (going back to 2016).

Dolby Atmos from NetFlix is only available with the latest 2020 Ultra (model 4800).

An Ultra LT will do:  Atmos (not in NF), HLG, and HDR10 (no DV)

The Roku 4 (model 4400, 2015) is the only 4K player that doesn't support HDR.
