Samsung HDR 1500 TV promises brightness intensity superior to HDR10, conventional standard, used by the other TV manufacturers.
By achieving higher brightness, brand-name TVs allow for sharper contrast levels, featuring brighter colors, more noticeable dark tones and image reproduction that tends to offer more quality.
The term trend here is central because although the displays have extremely high brightness, even exceeding the minimum specifications of what is meant by HDR today, the fact is that experiencing all this image quality can depend a lot on the content you watch : most TV channels don’t broadcast in HDR, streaming services like Netflix, GloboPlay and GlobosatPlay offer HDR in a restricted collection of titles and the application of this technology in games still crawls and is prone to hardware limitations.
What is HDR, anyway?
HDR is an imaging technology that aims to raise the intensity of colors and contrast reproduced by a screen. Associated especially with 4K TVs, the HDR can be found in more than one standard, but generally refers to screens capable of displaying images with 10-bit color depth and total of 1.07 billion different colors.
The difference from Samsung TVs is the offer of specifications that are even higher than the HDR10. For example: the line of HDTVs with the so-called HDR1000 reaches 1400 nits of brightness intensity well beyond the minimum 1000 nits required for a product to receive the HDR10 seal.
For HDR1500 brand televisions, the screen is expected to reach at least 1500 nits of brightness.
It may seem strange to consider the picture quality of a screen from the brightness level, since if you put the brightness at the maximum of your TV, it will overshadow the images and will not gain any quality from that.
But in this case, the measure refers to theoretical limits of display performance and, in the case of color perception by those who watch, the level of brightness is essential for faithful reproduction of images in darker scenes, or even So that the contrast between colors and light and dark tones is more noticeable.
