Samsung has confirmed to us that it’s bringing its HDR10+ technology to its 2016 range of Smart TVs by way of a firmware update that’s set to start making the rounds in the near future, though we don’t know exactly when.

“HDR10+ provides unprecedented picture quality on all displays with brightness, color, and contrast automatically optimized for each scene,” said the firm. With HDR10+ dynamic tone mapping, every scene is individually enhanced.”

Having had the opportunity to experience HDR10+ earlier today, I’m pleased to confirm that it’s a significant improvement on the HDR10 standard; colors are a lot crisper and there’s a noticeable improvement in clarity.

Unfortunately, the catalog of content that currently supports HDR10+ is relatively thin, but Samsung’s hoping to change that with its new metadata platform, which it created in partnership with 20th Century Fox and Panasonic.
