HDR+ doesn’t read any kind of metadata; as it is designed for SDR content and SDR content doesn’t contain metadata. It was designed to smooth out posterization on SDR content by trying to better match the TV panel’s native colour space.Just to double down on Fosters clarification. Did anyone ever test what HDR+ mode does when used on HDR10 content, does it add any kind of scene specific dynamic metadata adjustments i.e. resulting in pseudo HDR10+ similar to LG's Active HDR?
They lacked details, because what HDR+ did depended entirely on the content you were watching, it was an algorithm. It kind of shows why Samsung have started to remove it from their TVs. In short, consumers found it confusing.Samsung's releases about HDR+ were always cryptic and lacking details but I did wonder whether the mode formed the basis of their HDR10+ concept.
