HDR - Enjoy Lifelike Colors*

HDR (High Dynamic Range) displays provide a wider luminance range compared to standard dynamic range (SDR) displays for brighter whites and darker blacks as well as more accurate, vibrant colors and better contrast . With colors that are closer to what the human eye perceives, HDR provide more lifelike and immersive movie viewing, gaming and content creation experiences.
