The HDR or High Dynamic Range to improve is one of the options increasingly valued by users when it comes time to get a device. Whether in televisions, Blu-ray players, monitors or mobile phones it is increasingly common to see the HDR seal on the packaging.
A push that comes from the hand of different platforms that allow you to enjoy this content. Whether in physical format with UHD Blu-raydiscs or via streaming, every time we have access to more content with HDR and a good example is Netflix, which now supports Windows 10 users with a compatible monitor to access TV series and Netflix movies in High Dynamic Range.
The company has added support for HDR so that compatible Windows 10 computers can play this type of content. Netflix has announced the arrival of support for HDR in Windows 10 in a statement:
“We are pleased to announce the incorporation of support for HDR (High Dynamic Range) in Windows 10, whether using the Microsoft Edge browser or choosing to use the Netflix application.” With this update, Netflix users who count With a compatible device and a premium plan, you can enjoy amazing movies and Netflix shows in HDR. ”
However, in order to access HDR content on Netflix from the PC, the team must meet minimum requirements apart from having a compatible screen. So it is necessary for the team to integrate a seventh generation Intel Kaby Lake processor.
The Netflix catalog currently covers more than 200 hours of video with support for HDR and it is expected that the number of series and movies compatible with this system will grow even more in the year 2018.
In this way compatible computers are added to televisions and phones (admitted) that can access content with High Dynamic Range on Netflix, an HDR that is limited to HDR10 , as Netflix does not have HDR content at this time under the Dolby Vision format.
