Disney+’s The Mandalorian joins a long list of fake HDR content, analysis finds

YouTube channel HDTVTest is known for doing quality analysis of the HDR implementations in popular media like films, games, and TV shows, and it found that Disney+’s The Mandalorian live-action Star Wars series is the latest in a long line of high-profile content that is just SDR wrapped up in an HDR package. The show has none of the actual benefits of HDR and a number of additional downsides, such that viewers might actually prefer to disable HDR on their TVs when viewing. – Samuel Axon, Ars Technica » https://ift.tt/37Ceqyx [photo: Orin Zebest,Flickr]

YouTube adds 4K support for livestreams

From today YouTube users will be able to stream standard and 360-degree video content in 4K. This could have huge significance for YouTube’s position in the live stream space. While popular, the video behemoth’s main streaming competitor, Twitch, currently lacks the bandwidth to support 4K streaming. Twitch servers typically limit streamers to a bandwidth of 3.5 Mbps (and a 4K stream can require more than double that). – Tom Regan, Engadget http://engt.co/2g76TfR
