The Samsung’s 2018 Premium UHD (from NU8000 series and up) and QLED TV series are now officially certified with HDR10+ technology.
The products will be labeled with the official HDR10+ logo, in order to make immediately apparent support for open format and free of royalty promoted by Samsung, Panasonic, Fox and even embraced by Philips and Warner Bros.
HDR10+ was born as an evolution of HDR10 (which remains as a basic format) and uses dynamic metadata, such as Dolby Vision. This feature allows you to use Dynamic Tone Mapping, that is to adapt the contents frame by frame in order to optimize contrast and brightness peak with a higher accuracy.
Doochan Eum, Vice President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics said:
“The introduction of the HDR10+ certification logo represents the groundwork that we are setting for the ultra-high picture quality TV market. By making use of our leading technology and expertise, we will continue to extend our valuable partnerships while maintaining our commitment to providing consumers with the best HDR content possible.”
Samsung and Fox also helped to set the standard for the HDR10+ licensing program. The goal is to simplify the work for content creators. Fox has also selected a series of titles that in the coming weeks will make their debut in HDR10+ format. Also, Rakuten TV, the video on demand service, will be in the game. A collaboration with Samsung will bring the videos to HDR10+ on the platform.
