Samsung adds HDR upgrade to 2016 TVs

Samsung Electronics has announced an HDR+ firmware update for all of its 2016 SUHD TVs that have a Quantum Dot display.

The manufacturer said the firmware update is designed to enhance the High Dynamic Range (HDR) to its highest picture quality, even if the source isn’t in HDR format.

Jong-hee Han, vice-president of the Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics, said: “The HDR+ function offers an exceptional HDR viewing experience to all 2016 SUHD and UHD TV consumers. We’re thrilled to share this latest advancement with our consumers, which they can access directly on their 2016 SUHD TVs, as Samsung continues to bring the highest form of picture quality right to their living rooms.”

The automatic update is available for all 2016 SUHD TVs and will be available for all HDR-compatible 2016 UHD models by September.
