Although HDR10 + is not as popular as Dolby Vision, it has been available on select TVs for some time now. Those TVs merge with Panasonic and Samsung, the company that uses the technology.
In the file of to announce (PDF) displayed by FlatPanelsHD, Vice President of Retail Product Strategy has revealed that the company has supported HDR10 + on new features of Roku Express 4K +, Roku Express 4K and Roku Ultra (2020). This means that content, including Chromecast and Google TV, can now save HDR10 + content, as long as viewers are using apps that run in the same format.
Viewers streaming in HDR10 + can have brighter, darker colors and brighter whites due to stronger metadata. Unlike the HDR10 standard, which sets the bright spots at the beginning of a video or display, HDR10 + and Dolby Vision are able to adjust on the fly.
Supported services for HDR10 + are limited at the moment, although they have Amazon Prime Video, Google Play and YouTube. Paramount is the latest company to restore the standard, announcing that its search engine (Paramount +) can now offer HDR10 + shows and videos – Stephen King’s Representation be one of them – on connected devices. As long as companies like Samsung can’t add Dolby Vision support to their TVs, the expansion of HDR10 + should bring better awareness of the show.
