HDR stands for High Dynamic Range. HDR Plus is an enhanced version of this. But what is HDR Plus?
At the end of the day, HDR is about getting better colour and contrast on your TV. While this all might sound dull and tedious, these terms are really important when it comes to picture quality.
What is HDR Plus?
With HDR, whites appear cleaner, blacks darker and the contrast between the two is greater, allowing for sharper images and colours that are clearer and more realistic. You’ll also see more details in bright areas (you can see the colour transitions in a burning flame rather than just a white blob) and more detail in dark areas (think black cat walking around in a dark cellar).
Something to keep in mind is that there are a couple of different HDR technologies. Right now, you’ll mostly see HDR 10 and Dolby Vision, but in time you’ll hear more about HLG and Advanced HDR. The good news: both content and TVs can support multiple types of HDR — even Netflix, for example, will stream in Dolby Vision or HDR 10 depending on your TV.
Our advice: buy a TV that features HDR because, as you can see on nearly any electronics shop floor, it makes one hack of a difference.
Colour aficionados will be pleased to learn that Hisense 2017 4K ULED TVs Series 7 and Series 8 feature “HDR Plus.”
HDR Plus further enhances all of these features when used with technologies found in a ULED TV. HDR Plus brings a wider colour gamut which delivers even more vibrant and accurate details on screen – expect brighter whites, darker blacks and even more lifelike colour!
