Samsung to bring the world’s first HDR10+ 8K content to its 8K TVs
Samsung has announced that the South Korean tech giant is bringing the world’s first HDR10+ 8K content to its 2019 8K TV models.
The people in Europe will be the first to enjoy 8K content as Samsung partners with major European streaming services, including CHILI, The Explorers, and MEGOGO. The three key OTT (Over-the-top) service providers in Europe will adopt 8K HDR10+ along with its support for 4K HDR10+.
In addition to that, several other streaming services like Rakuten TV, Deutsche Telekom’s Magenta TV, and Videociety are all expected to adopt HDR10+ support for its respective VOD services between Q4 2019 and Q1 2020. Also, Molotov, the first French OTT streaming service, might adopt HDR10+ as well.
Thus far, 81 companies have joined Samsung’s HDR10+ certification and logo programme. The programme was first launched in June last year, in partnership with 20th Century Fox and Panasonic. Last December saw the new opening of an HDR10+ centre in China, followed by Korea, Japan, and the U.S.
