Samsung Releases HDR+ Update for 2016 SUHD TV
4K TVs are becoming affordable each day and as a result, those TVs are not as premium as they were in the past. I mean you can still find UHD televisions that costs as much as a new car but now 4K TVs start from a way cheaper price. As a result, TV makers are trying to go beyond. That is why we had 4K premium TVs in CES 2016. But how are they premium? Because those 4K Premium ones pack HDR.
HDR is an old photography term and you can find HDR in your phone’s camera. Wikipedia describes the feature as a technique used in imaging and photography to reproduce a greater dynamic range of luminosity than is possible with standard digital imaging or photographic techniques. However, HDR on TVs are a little bit different. It aims to improve color quality and lighting.
HDR is available on most of the new (high-end) 4K TVs including Samsung SUHD ones. However, Samsung just updated those TVs ( only the SUHD ones that have a Quantum Dot display ) to “enhance High Dynamic Range (HDR) quality to its highest picture quality capacity, even if the source isn’t in HDR format” .
HDR+ is better than normal HDR because it renders light and shadow quality better. With HDR+, you can watch your favorite TV shows with better lightning effects.
