High Dynamic Range is a hot topic for all sectors of our industry. Whether its acquisition, displaying the end product in the home, or anywhere in between, we are all affected in one way or another with this new HDR technology. Streaming services now offer the ability to sense your TV’s display capabilities, and if it’s HDR compliant, will stream to you the HDR source.
