YouTube launches HDR video support

Tuesday 8 November 2016 | 11:30 CET | News
YouTube announced that it now supports high dynamic range (HDR) video, offering higher contrast and a more vibrant range of colours. "Simply put, HDR unlocks the most spectacular image quality we've ever streamed," said the company in a blog post. YouTube videos in HDR can only be viewed on supported devices, such as HDR TVs with the new Chromecast Ultra, and soon on all 2016 Samsung SUHD and UHD TVs. However, the only smartphone on the market with official HDR capability was the now unavailable Galaxy Note 7.
