TVs with HDR10+ Adaptive technology claim to provide a better HDR experience regardless of the illumination in your space. But what exactly is this new technology and how does it vary from Dolby Vision IQ?
HDR Content Adjustment in Relation to Ambient Light:
It’s no secret that HDR video looks best when watched in a dimly lit setting. It’s difficult to adjust light efficiently unless you have a home theatre room set up, and it might vary greatly. The viewing experience is influenced by ambient lighting, which might make it difficult to see certain shadow features in an image.
To address this issue, HDR10+ Technologies, the consortium that created and maintains HDR10+, introduced the HDR10+ Adaptive feature in January 2021. The function optimizes HDR10+ material dynamically to deliver the optimum experience based on the lighting conditions in the room.
It accomplishes this by combining dynamic metadata encoded in HDR10+ material with real-time ambient light data from a television sensor. The sensor sends information to the feature, which adjusts the brightness and contrast of the picture when the lighting in the room changes.
According to HDR10+ Technologies, in very bright lighting conditions, the feature makes the most adjustment for very dark scenes, whereas in very dark viewing conditions, no adjustment is made.
Furthermore, HDR10+ Adaptive accomplishes all of this without jeopardizing the artistic purpose. It also works with features like Filmmaker Mode, which is designed to present movies in the way their creators intended.
Dolby Vision IQ vs. HDR10+ Adaptive:
HDR10+ Adaptive isn’t the first HDR standard to provide such a capability. Dolby Vision IQ was launched in early 2020 by Dolby. It also adapts HDR material to the lighting conditions in your viewing area.
The majority of HDR10+ Adaptive’s and Dolby Vision IQ’s functions are quite similar. There are, however, a few small distinctions to be made. Dolby Vision IQ, for example, can recognize HDR material and transition to a suitable preset to improve image quality. It may also determine an appropriate color temperature based on the scene’s content. HDR10+ Adaptive, on the other hand, does not appear to have the same features.
Finally, both of these capabilities are only compatible with HDR content. As a result, HDR10+ Adaptive works exclusively with HDR10+ material, whereas Dolby Vision IQ only works with Dolby Vision content.
