Youtube to soon have HDR videos




Youtube, the free video sharing website, will soon join a host of other Video sites that have their videos in HDR quality. This announcement was made the CES, by YouTube’s chief business officer, Robert Kyncl.  High Dynamic Range video (HDR) will provide a higher contrast ratio and wider range of colours. In lay terms, Videos on Youtube are going to be more colourful.

However, this feature can not be made use of with android phones, as they do not have the capacity to utilise Dobly Vision tech just yet. Mobile devices have nowhere near the brightness required to make full use of Dolby Vision. Dolby Vision encompasses a range between 0-10,000 nits and nature easily surpasses 15,000 nits.
