It will also contain a Codec MAT (Metadata-enhanced Audio Transmission) support to enable Dolby TrueHD audio bit streaming on compatible 2017 LG OLED TVs when playing console games and through a compatible soundbar to the TV.

"LG's OLED TVs have become the de facto leader in the premium TV market and are the optimal platform for those seeking to experience content the way its original creators envisioned," said Brian Kwon, president of the LG Electronics Home Entertainment Company. "With Dolby's audio and visual technologies, LG continues to deliver an enhanced experience that pushes the boundaries of home TV viewing."Source
