LG OLED of the Year 2022 will receive Firmware 3.20.24 with Dolby Vision “Precision Detail”

LG had already in February 2022 announced that the company’s OLED and QNED TVs will be upgraded to Dolby Vision IQ with Precision Rendering this year. This is a technique for improving the display of contrasts. So you want to tease out more details from particularly dark and bright image areas. According to LG and Dolby, natural image content such as clouds, water, sand, rocks or even snow primarily benefit from this. In the meantime, the new firmware 3. 65 .23 rolled out exactly this function. In German, the function is then called “precision detail”.

Dolby Vision with precision detail is initially only available on the LG OLED 2022 of the C2 and G2 series. If you own older TV models and are hoping for an upgrade, then unfortunately I have to take that hope away from you. LG states that a lot of power is required for this function. Therefore, they can only be unlocked on current televisions with the new Alpha 9 Gen 5 processor. Firmware 3.02.21 updates the Dolby Engine to version 757 .08 and activates the feature for you.

If you want to experiment with “Precision Detail”, then switch to Image Settings > Advanced Image Settings > Clarity > Precision Detail (at the bottom) . However, you will only see this menu item if a source with Dolby Vision is also being played back. The new firmware also has other improvements in its luggage.

According to 4KFilme.de, the new firmware also optimizes near-black handling. If the brightness is only slightly above the absolute black point in certain areas of the image, flickering can occur. You want to have optimized that, which may also benefit the VRR display. This was particularly noticeable. Also, with the video codec AV1, higher bit rates of up to 60 Mbit/s possible. Furthermore, an error has been fixed that occurred when optimizing the HDR image with the 22 white point settings could result in not all points being selectable.

Also the excessive brightness display in Dolby Vision Cinema Picture Mode should be a thing of the past. Apple AirPlay fans may now notice less audio lag. The LG Channels are now also available as an input in the dashboard menu and, according to LG, voice control has been improved. The list of pre-installed SSL certificates has also been updated. The point “New advertising features in the Home Dashboard” reads rather ugly. We don’t yet know exactly what that means.

Unfortunately, there are still some bugs that are still awaiting corrections. The Black Frame Insertion (BFI) still only works with 55 Hz, but not at 120 Hz and also the integrated test pattern generator still shows errors. But you can’t have everything at once. Below you will find a list of the OLED models in the spoiler, which should currently receive the new firmware and thus Dolby Vision precision details and the other functions.
