Google's Youtube is adding support for High Dynamic Range (HDR) videos, meaning that videos with higher contrast are available featuring detailed shadows and highlights with more clarity than before.
In addition, support for wide color gamut means colors are more vibrant.
Starting today, you can watch YouTube videos in HDR on supported devices, such as HDR TVs with the new Chromecast Ultra, and soon on all 2016 Samsung SUHD and UHD TVs. If you're using a device that doesn't yet support HDR, videos will still play in standard dynamic range. As more HDR devices become available, YouTube will enable streaming of the HDR version. And if you want to watch some content in HDR today, YouTube creators like MysteryGuitarMan, Jacob + Katie Schwarz, and Abandon Visuals already bring you content in HDR. Starting today, any creator can upload HDR videos to YouTube.
Youtube has worked with the DaVinci Resolve team to make uploading HDR just as simple as SDR videos to YouTube.
