Here’s what you need to know about HDR-supported streaming

Now, both Amazon Prime and Netflix have a couple of HDR supported series, including the second season of Amazon’s exclusive detective series, Bosch, but there are some differences. Today, Amazon announced that it would now support Dolby Vision HDR-supported streaming, which is different than the HDR10 method supported by Netflix. Certain titles, like The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and The Smurfs 2 are among the first to be available for those with sets that support Dolby Vision HDR play. While Samsung and Sony are backing HDR10, the format that studios have been using to create their content, Dolby Vision is technically superior, but demands dedicated hardware in both the television set and content. It’s something to take into consideration when browsing different models. – Julia Alexander, Polygon http://ift.tt/28YZKMC
