Samsung launches TVs for 2022 with HDR10+ gaming display
Samsung has announced that a selection its 2022 line-up of premium 4K and 8K televisions and gaming monitors will support the new HDR10+ Gaming standard.
The new HDR gameplay will feature on Samsung’s Q70 TV series and will be officially unveiled early 2022 along with a list of 4K and 8K game titles, all powered by NVIDIA GPUs.
Seokwoo Yong, Executive Vice President and Head of R&D Team, Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics, commented: “We are extremely proud to announce that the new HDR10+ Gaming standard will be adopted by Samsung’s 2022 Neo QLED line up with the Q70 TV series and above and gaming monitors, allowing users to enjoy a game-changing experience through cutting-edge visuals and richer, life-like images. Samsung will continue to invest in users’ viewing experiences as technology continues to advance and provide enhanced new features and capabilities.”
This new standard, developed by HDR10+ Technologies, LLC, gives game developers the tools they need to provide gamers with a compelling and consistent HDR gaming experience without the need for manual calibration across a variety of display technologies for various input sources, including consoles, PCs and more, Samsung said.
Samsung’s 2022 TV and gaming monitor lineup will support the HDR10+ Gaming standard by allowing automated HDR calibration that provides stunning picture quality to meet game developers’ demand. This translates into one of the most responsive and accurate gaming experiences available to date.
By removing the need for manual settings when games are loaded, something previously only possible with movie and television content, the game engine automatically optimises video game content in real-time, Samsung added in a press release.
According to the brand, this feature ensures details in the dark shadows and preserves the brightest highlights so that gamers can see and react to everything on the screen. It also configures the display to “true reference mode”, providing better colour, also without the need for gamers to spend additional time with game settings.
