Samsung announced its support of YouTube’s global high dynamic range (HDR) playback on television through an expanded version of the YouTube application. The YouTube Application is currently available on all 2016 Samsung Quantum dot TVs and UHD TVs.
YouTube will support High Dynamic Range (HDR) video streaming, offering a wide range of HDR content. Launched through an automatic software update, consumers who use all 2016 Samsung Quantum dot TV and UHD TVs can access HDR content simply by visiting the HDR category within the YouTube application on YouTube’s 4K channel, providing an easy way to navigate and enjoy premium content.
With a growing number of HDR content providers, as well as the numerous creators already producing HDR video content, YouTube’s HDR support is expected to introduce more genre offerings in the coming year and satisfy user demand for a true-to-life viewing experience on the content they enjoy the most.
“With the global availability of YouTube’s HDR, we at Samsung are thrilled to support the best HDR viewing experience and a wide range of HDR content for users to enjoy,” said Mark Farish, Head of TV Business at Samsung Gulf Electronics.
“We are confident that our TVs will bring to life an immersive HDR viewing experience all from the comfort of our users’ homes,” he added.
