Samsung has announced an HDR+ firmware update to all of its 2016 Quantum Dot SUHD TVs. The update will initially be available for SUHD Qunatum Dot models and improves upscaling of non SDR content to wider colour gamut pseudo-HDR. HDR+ also applies processing to native HDR content. Samsung says it enhances shadow detail and boosts contrast. 

In ‘Expert Mode’ it’s now possible to customise HDR performance by adjusting brightness, contrast ratio and gradation. These settings can be accessed within the ‘Picture - Special viewing’ mode options, where HDR+ is activated.

The upgrade is currently available for all 2016 SUHD TVs, and will be available for all HDR-compatible 2016 UHD TVs from the brand by September.

“The HDR+ function offers an exceptional HDR viewing experience to all 2016 SUHD and UHD TV consumers,” says Jong-hee Han, VP of Samsung’s Visual Display Business. “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.”
