YouTube is introducing support for High Dynamic Range (HDR) videos. In a blog post the company described HDR as the “most spectacular image quality” its ever streamed.
The Google-backed streaming service has previously supported a number of emerging technologies including from HD and 4K video, live streaming, 3D, 360-degree video, and spatial audio.
It switched on HDR to supporting devices on Monday including the new Chromecast Ultra, as well as Samsung’s 2016 range of SUHD and UHD TVs.
A number of YouTube stars and creators including MysteryGuitarMan, Jacob + Katie Schwarz, and Abandon Visuals have been developing content in the HDR format.
YouTube itself has been working with DaVinci Resolve to simplify the process of uploading HDR video to the site.
