Samsung’s 2020 QLED 8K TVs provides one of the finest visual experience. But, do you know that it was not that easy for Samsung to create the future of viewing. The tech giant has brought several technologies together to provide a never before viewing experience. Samsung’s 2020 QLED 8K TVs offer 100% color volume. That’s the reason why Samsung’s 2020 QLED 8K TVs provides one of the best resolution and most natural viewing experience. The screen resolution is so detailed that it captures more than 1 billion colors.
Samsung’s 2020 QLED 8K TVs also offer anti-reflection 2.0 technology, AI upscaling technology, and HDR10+ technology. The anti-reflection 2.0 technology is used to maintain the screen quality during bright light conditions. While on the other hand, AI upscaling improves the picture quality of the content. Along with all these technologies, HDR10+ technology plays the most important part of providing the best visual and display experience. As it optimizes brightness and contrast for every individual scene, that displays over the Samsung’s 2020 QLED 8K TV.
This seems to be a revolution in the home entertainment industry. Hence, Samsung has interviewed the developers who have created this HDR10+ technology at the Picture Quality Solution Lab of Samsung Electronics. In this interview, the developers have shared more details about this new HDR10+ technology.
All You Need to Know About Samsung’s HDR10+ Technology
HDR10+ can be undoubtedly considered as the game-changing technology in the home entertainment industry. It enables the Samsung’s 2020 QLED 8K TV to show the hidden details. Here are the details that you must know about HDR10+.
This technology was first introduced by Samsung in 2017. Since then, the technology is capable enough to offer a high contrast range and wide color gamut. Seonseok Kim, one of the developers at Samsung’s Picture Quality Solution Lab, stated that, “Previously, we followed the SDR (Standard Dynamic Range) standard that is characterized by a low brightness level of 100 nits and a narrow color gamut. But when HDR10 was introduced, with its high brightness levels and wide color gamut of over 1,000 nits, we were able to offer brightness and col or ranges to users that previously unimagined.”
Every content has its unique color combinations, settings, and brightness. Hence, it is not possible for a normal TV to provide the best visual experience for every different video content. But, with the evolution of HDR10+ technology it became possible. The technology works quite differently and converts the video into different scenes while processing it. On this, Beomjoon Kim, another developer at Samsung’s Picture Quality Solution Lab stated that “The previous technology, HDR10, applied a singular contrast range curve to an entire video, but HDR10+ analyzes the average brightness, maximum brightness, and accumulated data distribution by scene to apply different contrast range curves where appropriate.”
Also, it is not just about the color settings, as gradation is also quite important. If you don’t know about gradation, let us explain to you what it is. Gradation is the level of changes in a shot between bright and dark ambiance. It is necessary to execute gradation properly to avoid the details of a scene from getting blurred. HDR10+ also takes care of the gradation. Guiwon Seo has acknowledged this feature by stating, “All characteristics in a video need to be analyzed to successfully achieve this. Our technology will automatically adjust the HDR curve when there is a high amount of gradation signal distribution to ensure these signals are not mixing with other specific gradation features.”
When the developers were asked about the most difficult part of developing HDR10+ technology, Martin Junseob Kim answered stating, “it was ensuring that different TV products, with different brightness settings, could provide the same display experiences.” However, after so many experiments and discussions, Samsung’s developers have finally overcame this difficulty by developing an algorithm that can adapt different displays.
Samsung is also planning to bring evolution into the whole entertainment industry. Hence the company has collaborated with many giant names in the entertainment sector, including 20th Century Fox and the Panasonic Corporation.
At last, Samsung has cleared its vision for the entertainment industry. The company will keep working on its HDR technology to provide the never before visual experience to the consumers.
