Samsung and Amazon create the new HDR10+ standard

Samsung and Amazon create the new HDR10+ standard, adding "Dynamic Tone Mapping" to the HDR10 standard and thus creating a more confusing HDR ecosystem.



Read more on Samsung's new HDR10+ standard.

Yeah. I'm just going to wait until the dust has settled and I can buy a 40"+ Freesync 4K screen that uses whatever HDR standard becomes THE standard.

I seriously laugh at those comparison shots, it is so easy to tell its just a load of bull, a decent not even crazy expensive panel on whatever tv wont be that dark or lacking such immense of contrast compared to the "new" thing.

Yeah, these comparisons will always be strange, as they are trying to show a difference that cannot be displayed on the user's TV/monitor.

HDR displays do offer brighter images while simultaneously offering darker blacks, though it is impossible to showcase the difference on a standard/SDR display.

TBH while HDR does sound cool, I don't really see it as a requirement for anything. To me, VRR (variable refresh rates) are more important than HDR.

HDR is a cool feature, but I an unconvinced that it offer a big enough improvement to the viewing experience to be worthwhile. Maybe in a few years when a lot more content is HDR, but for now the price it too high and there is not enough HDR content.

I think the point is, as they said to: "adjust brightness on a scene-by-scene (or even frame-by-frame) basis". I often come across scenes,eg inside a dark building, where this would work great.

Want near HDR experience? Get an OLED TV, they are amazing and you won't get screwed over by picking the wrong HDR set
