Samsung’s New HDR10+ Tech Auto-Adjusts Your TV To Ambient Light

With theaters on their way out, it’s become all the more important that we elevate our home viewing experience in order to feature the film as the director intended. Because let’s be honest. Although no one can deny the convenience that streaming services bring, the hardware they rely on usually leaves a lot to be desired.

But with Samsung’s all-new HDR10+ Adaptive feature, no longer do you have to worry about inadvertently turning that beautifully imperfect film grain into a polished picture rid of its character. For starters, it takes Samsung’s existing HDR 10 technology and makes it even more capable, encoding information on a scene-by-scene basis. In practice, this means that it can automatically adjust the screen’s brightness in order to accommodate the room’s ambient lighting, delivering content that shows the way it was supposed to. And because it supports Samsung’s Filmmaker Mode, it can even optimize the image quality specifically for the movie being played. While we know that Samsung’s suite of upcoming 4k TVs will feature the tech, only time will tell if it makes its way to older models.
