FIRMWARE UPDATE TO BRING HDR10+ TO PIONEER BLU-RAY PLAYERS
HDR10+ is the latest version of the HDR (High Dynamic Range) format. Assuming you have the compatible TV or display, and AV Receiver, HDR10+ better realises the incredible dynamic luminance potential of Ultra HD Blu-ray discs.
The current HDR10 format uses static metadata present on an Ultra HD Blu-ray disc to initially set brightness which then remains unchanged for the duration of the disc when it’s played back.
HDR10+ improves on HDR because it uses dynamic tone-mapping metadata to allow brightness to be adjusted frame by frame. This results in much more dynamic looking, colourful and realistic HDR images, closer to the creator’s original vision.
The firmware update is expected to be available in early 2019.
