Adaptive HDR10 + will be supported in Filmmaker Mode on new Samsung QLED TVs.
At Samsung, a new feature dynamically optimizes picture brightness for each scene using HDR10 + LLC specifications. This allows you to automatically adjust the picture for any lighting conditions, getting the maximum comfort from HDR content. The technology uses a light sensor built into the TV and ensures that images are reproduced as closely as possible to the creators’ intentions, without loss of detail or contrast.
Amazon Prime Video subscribers will be among the first to experience the new feature’s benefits – all HDR content from the service is HDR10 + by default.
Samsung’s new line of premium QLED TVs was announced on 6 January as part of a special online event. It’s unclear if the current 2020 QLED models will get the new feature.
- HDR10 + is an updated open standard for adding dynamic metadata to a video stream to improve the contrast and dynamic range of a television picture. Samsung developed the HDR10 + standard with 20th Century Fox and Panasonic as an alternative to Dolby Vision. The technology dynamically changes the brightness, saturation, and contrast of the image. Its quality becomes as close as possible to the original intention of the director.
- In December 2017, Amazon Prime Video began showing HDR10 + on Samsung Smart TVs. In 2019 Samsung enlisted the support of several of Europe’s largest online cinemas to bring support for 8K HDR10 + content to its consumers, and this year it added support for HDR10 + content from Google Play Movies
