Organic LED tech fuses with 4K resolution for superior contrast, colour and clarity. OLED pixels are self-lighting, meaning that they can switch on-and-off individually, for the deepest blacks, super-bright whites, natural colours and accurate detail. This revolutionary technology has been mastered by LG for stunning picture quality, and from any angle.
The only HDR format applied with the human eye, Dolby Vision HDR uses dynamic metadata to provide frame-by-frame analysis of the content to ensure the best picture quality is shown on screen throughout. 2020 LG OLED and 2020 NanoCell models support Dolby Vision HDR Apple and Netflix have committed to providing much of their 4K content in Dolby Vision HDR so any new TV really does need to support this format!
This format of HDR uses no metadata, however, this allows the content to be broadcast live from the event in the users home! This is the format of choice for the BBC and they have successfully trailed content from Planet Earth and Blue Planet in 4K HDR as well as sporting events such as the World Cup, Wimbledon and the FA Cup final.
HDR10 is the most common HDR format available, but only uses static metadata, Consoles like the X Box and Playstation 4 Pro uses HDR10 for gaming and streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Prime also use this format for some of their UHD content.
The LG OLED55BX6 has the new Alpha 7 Gen 3 processor but what does it actually do? the processor is a vital part of any TV and a good processor can make the difference between a good picture and a poor one, the Alpha 7 processor using clever algorithms does 5 main things to the image, cleans and smoothes it, sharpens, makes objects appear clear by adjusting the contrast and depth, the colour enhancer produces vivid colour and lastly colour mapping to reproduce the colour true to life.

The “Auto Low Latency Mode” (ALLM) is a new HDMI feature defined in HDMI 2.1 that allows a source (e.g. a gaming console such as the Xbox One S or Xbox One X) to direct all compatible components in the HDMI chain (e.g TV sets) to enter its low-latency mode automatically without requiring the user to navigate a menu to set the optimal latency for their content. This mode in the OLED55BX6 TV can be switched on within the menu of the X-box and will then allow the TV to automatically detect and switch to game mode.
