Youtube now supports HDR
Like Netflix, Youtube now supports HDR content.
This technology, which is available only in some screens of high quality, displays the most important contrasts to make them more vivid images. Only a few high-end TVs are compatible with this technology, but the offer is bound to grow.
This is why more and more services are investing in HDR. After Netflix, which announced the encoding of some of its productions in this format – including Marco Polo – is now the turn of Youtube to launch into this new adventure by allowing content providers to offer content in HDR.
The announcement in itself has nothing really surprising insofar Google, the parent company of YouTube, marketing a new Chromecast specifically for the HDR and 4K content.
