Video delivery solutions provider Harmonic has announced the addition of support for HDR10+.
The video format is now supported on Harmonic’s VOS360 cloud streaming platform and its XOS software-based advanced media processing solution.
Still a relatively nascent – but growing – technology, HDR10+ adds dynamic metadata to HDR10 source files to optimise the colour contrast and image details of each frame of the HDR video to the consumer’s display capabilities. It is currently supported by more than 130 companies.
Shahar Bar, senior vice president, video products and corporate development, at Harmonic, said: “Harmonic has always fostered innovations that fuel exceptional-quality viewing experiences. Adding support for HDR10+ technology to our cloud streaming and software-based solutions allows audiences to see every light, shadow and colour flawlessly. We’re excited to help early adopters of HDR10+ make a giant leap forward in transforming viewing experiences.”
The company is currently trialling HDR10+ with NextGen TV operator Evoca, which currently operates throughout the Mountain West in the US.
Bill Mandel, co-manager of the HDR10+ Technologies LLC, said: “Harmonic is pioneering better video experiences by adding support for HDR10+ to the VOS360 platform. We look forward to seeing the results of Evoca’s HDR10+ trial and are confident viewers will be amazed by the incredible range of colours and detail that HDR video and HDR10+ bring to Nextgen TV experiences.”
