Samsung and its adaptive HDR, what is it?
HDR10 + Adaptive is a new proposal by Samsung that comes in response to Dolby and its Dolby Vision IQ, a version of the HDR standard designed to intelligently adapt all this high dynamic range content based on the ambient light in the room where the screen is located.
This control of said brightness levels is managed by using light sensors that would be incorporated in televisions that support these new versions. So if you have a television compatible with Dolby Vision or HDR10 +, it would not imply support for these as it lacks them with great security.
By Samsung this new standard will come hand in hand with the new QLED televisions which it will release and has already stated that it will improve the experience when consuming content in environments that are not completely dark. Something that actually happens more often than many think. Because although many manufacturers advise enjoying HDR in a dark room, it is not always possible or you want to do so.
Whether or not there will be an option to get this technology to the current brand televisions, especially the higher-end ones, Samsung has not commented on anything. So we will have to wait for future movements to clear up doubts. However, you should not be obsessed with it if you are one of those who when you go to see a movie or series in HDR you bother to get the best lighting environment.
The chaos of HDR formats increases
Since we started enjoying high dynamic range content on televisions and monitors all this technology has been evolving like any other. This has meant an improvement in the whole issue of creation, management and visualization that is appreciated, but it has also brought the problem that each brand has decided to bet on a standard concrete.
For example, Samsung has gone for HDR10 + along with other brands such as Philips, Panasonic or TCL and was reducing the support for proprietary technologies such as Dolby Vision. Sony, LG and Loewe, to give some examples, did something similar and although they support Dolby Vision and HLG, they do not do the same with HDR10 +.
What is the problem with all this? Well, there are users who buy a television compatible with the visualization of high dynamic range images and then they realize that not with all the contents. Or worse yet, with all platforms. And it is true that there are both physical supports and platforms that give several options, but when it does not happen it is normal to feel a little disappointed.
With this new HDR10 + Adaptive, Dolby Vision IQ and those that are surely to come, none of this is going to change. But let’s hope that soon everything will be much clearer and that if there are several options, they will be the minimum possible. This will be the user who really benefits from a technology that certainly improves the viewing experience, much more than the increase in resolution.
