As we all know, Samsung does not support the Dolby Vision format for HDR videos on its TVs. Instead, the company uses the HDR10+ format that it has in common with Amazon and a few other brands. Last month, Apple added support for HDR10+ videos to Apple TV video boxes with the tvOS 16 update. Now, the company is adding support for HDR10+ video streaming to its Apple TV app.
The Apple TV app on Samsung smart TVs can now stream HDR10+ videos after a recent update. Content from Apple TV and iTunes movie rentals now comes in HDR10+, in addition to HDR. So, people can take advantage of HDR videos in a better format than the HDR10 standard while streaming content from Apple’s streaming service. However, only those videos will appear in the HDR10 + format, its HDR10 + file is provided by their production studio.
HDR10+ is very similar to Dolby Vision. Both formats provide dynamic metadata (frame-by-frame or scene-by-scene) for videos with high dynamic range. However, HDR10+ is an open source format, while Dolby Vision is a proprietary format. Recently, Dolby Vision has received advanced support, and only Samsung TVs use the HDR10 + format.
Google is reportedly developing a combination of high-quality audio and video formats to compete with Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision. It aims to bring them under one umbrella brand. Google will use HDR10+ as the HDR video format and is working with many brands to make it a success.
