- HDR stands for high dynamic range.
- It is the quality of a screen to correctly display the brighter parts and darker parts of the image that both contain displayable detail.
- It is a concept in television display that combines contrast ratio and color accuracy.
- Contrast ratio is the difference between the brightest and darkest parts of a screen image.
- These two extremes must be well balanced in order to display screen images that are as real as possible.
- Contrast ratio is assisted by color accuracy (high color gamut). Color accuracy involves the screen picking colors that most represent the object being displayed.
- A combination of these two factors gives you balanced and authentic pictures on your TV screen.
- For an HDR experience, you need an HDR-enabled TV (HDR TV) as well as HDR content such as Blu-ray films.
