YouTube will soon support HDR videos

YouTube logoIn photography, HDR (high dynamic range) refers to photos snapped in succession, with each photo sporting a different exposure. The end result when combined is a photo that has a much higher dynamic range compared to a single shot, as the combined exposures will make up for the lack of details in each shot.

Recently there has been talk about HDR videos coming to TVs and if you spend more time on the internet than watching the TV, you will be pleased to learn that during CES 2016, YouTube’s chief business officer Robert Kyncl revealed that YouTube will soon introduce support for HDR videos.

YouTube is definitely not the first company to introduce HDR support. Prior to this, companies such as Amazon and Netflix announced support for HDR videos as well, but we guess better late than never to the party, right? However there is a downside to this and that is you will need a HDR-capable display.

If you do not own a HDR-capable display then we guess YouTube’s announcement is kind of moot. However if you are planning on purchasing a new TV or monitor, perhaps you’ll want to look for one that has support for HDR. Brands like Samsung, LG, Sony, and Panasonic have unveiled several such devices at CES 2016, so you’ll want to keep an eye out for them when shopping.
