Amazon Prime Video, in partnership with Samsung, is finally streaming in HDR10+.
The companies announced the HDR10+ partnership back in April, and the new standard is now available on Samsung TVs to anyone with an Amazon Prime Video subscription.
The development follows the news that Netflix is ‘open’ to supporting the format, but that it isn’t on the company’s roadmap ‘at the moment’
HDR10+, created by Amazon and Samsung themselves, allows for scene-by-scene HDR mastering using dynamic metadata – similar to Dolby Vision.
However, HDR10+ does not offer the same 12-bit colour offered by Dolby Vision, instead it has the same 10-bit depth as HDR10.
