Samsung announced today that the HDR10 + Adaptive feature will be supported on Samsung TVs, improving the HDR10 + viewing experience in customers’ homes regardless of lighting conditions. HDR10 + Adaptive supports Filmmaker Mode and offers the best viewing experience in brighter rooms. In this way, you will be able to enjoy all the benefits of HDR in every home.
In the first place, HDR10 + Adaptive will be featured in Samsung’s QLED TV models. It is not yet known whether this technology will come to LED models.
As you know, HDR content is best watched in dark environments. However, it is not a habit to turn off the lights every time you watch TV at home. Samsung comes into play at this point and ensures that HDR content can be viewed clearly even in bright environments.
Thanks to the light sensors to be placed on the TV, the ambience of the content being watched at that moment will be analyzed and the brightness / contrast adjustment will be made automatically. This new technology, which will be used in Netflix and Amazon Prime services, is expected to come to Blu-Ray movies in the future.
Note that no satellite broadcasts you watch right now support HDR. In fact, all channels still broadcast in Full HD. So if you only watch local channels, there is no point in buying a TV with 4K and HDR support.
Imaging technologies did not show much improvement in 2020 due to the pandemic. However, this is expected to change in 2021, and major strides are expected, especially in the HDR field.
