Samsung Electronics is adding an HDR+ firmware update to all of its 2016 SUHD TVs with Quantum dot display.
The firmware update is designed to enhance High Dynamic Range (HDR) quality to its highest picture quality capacity, even if the source isn’t in HDR format.
HDR makes bright areas of the screen look even brighter, allows the TV to display new colors and significantly expands the range of the contrast ratio on-screen.
Features designed specifically for picture quality experts have also been enhanced with HDR+. In "Expert Mode," picture quality experts can customize HDR effects to suit individual users by calibrating brightness, contrast ratio and gradation to the finest degree. These settings can be accessed within the "Picture – Special viewing" mode options, where HDR+ is activated.
The automatic upgrade is currently available for all 2016 SUHD TVS, and will be available for all HDR-compatible 2016 UHD TVs models by September.
