HDR is known as “the really important technology in the 4k era”. Now almost all mainstream smart TVs are equipped with HDR image quality technology. As one of the standard technologies in the 4k era, HDR can enhance TV image quality and make colors more vivid, and the details clearer. So what is HDR10? You can get expert knowledge of HDR10 vis-a-vis Dolby Vision.
1. HDR10 Standard
HDR10 is an open standard announced by the Consumer Technology Association on August 27, 2015. This standard requires the use of a wide color gamut Rec.2020 color space, 10bit color depth, and SMPTE ST 2084 (PQ) image transmission function, but its data elements are all static.
Simply put, the HDR image effect outputted by each frame is the same. At present, all devices that support 4K HDR must meet this standard, such as TV manufacturers such as LG, Samsung, Sharp, Sony and Vizio, Microsoft’s Xbox One series of game consoles, Sony’s PlayStation 4 game consoles, and Apple’s Apple TV 4K. Of course, 4K UHD Blu-ray and 4K UHD streaming media must support this most basic standard.
2. HDR10 and Dolby Vision
However, HDR essentially has two corresponding mainstream standards, namely HDR10 and Dolby Vision. The HDR10 is currently the most widely distributed HDR standard because it is open source. Whether it is from the freedom of customization or the need to pay license fees, it is very attractive to manufacturers. For example, Samsung is particularly fond of HDR10.
Dolby Vision is a standard developed by Dolby, which is “younger” than HDR10, and it is also relatively niche. Dolby Vision is not open source and requires licensing fees to adopt the standard, so it is relatively less popular with the public. However, the advantage of Dolby Vision is that technology is more advanced than HDR10, and it can also allow for better results.
Relatively speaking, these two HDR formats have little difference in display effects. For consumers, when purchasing TVs, projectors, monitors, players, power amplifiers, and other homes audio-visual equipment, it is recommended to buy products that support HDR10. After all, the wool is on the sheep, and it does not rule out that the license fee charged by Dolby Vision may be added to the product price.

Similarly, in the past year or two, smart TV products have received more and more attention from users in terms of picture quality experience, and manufacturers are naturally also actively working on this aspect. But in fact, the quality of the picture is not only determined by the hardware. The processor onboard plays a more important role in optimization and adjustment.

The recently released H200Pro Blu-ray HD hard disk player supports HDR10. The display standard of HDR10 also gives more details in the dark place for the effect of the video display. It is not by rudely raising the brightness, but by making The bright place is bright, and the dark place is made black.
