Now, that still leaves a lot unanswered – is HDR10+ going to be baked into games or will it just be for streaming services? What about 4K Blu-rays?
For those who don't already know the ins and outs of the various HDR formats, we've got an HDR explainer right here, but the short version is that standard HDR10 uses what's called 'static metadata' to dictate the parameters of the HDR signal for the duration of a film or game, while Dolby Vision and HDR10+ use 'dynamic metadata', which allows the parameters of the HDR signal to be adjusted on the fly.
The upside is that, when applied correctly, Dolby Vision and HDR10+ can produce more dynamic images with greater subtlety and detail. It can be particularly effective for mid-range TVs, as the picture can be tailored somewhat to the specific limitations of the display.
