What is HDR Video?

HDR stands for High Dynamic Range Video. HDR delivers a higher contrast—or larger color and brightness range than Standard Dynamic Range (SDR). HDR and 4K are not competing video formats. 4K refers to the number of pixels on the screen, whereas HDR refers the contrast or color range between the lightest and darkest tones. A 4K image delivers a sharper crisper picture. HDR delivers a more visually, impactful picture. It is important to note, with a few exceptions, all HDR TVs are 4K but not all 4K TVs are HDR. 4K and HDR technologies complement each other, 4K resolution improves the sharpness and definition, HDR improves the color quality.
