What HDR formats are compatible with my TV?

    IMPORTANT: This article applies only to TVs that are not Android TV™ models. A separate article is available for compatible HDR formats for Android TV.

    Format overview

    High Dynamic Range (HDR):
    HDR enables the display of a wide dynamic range compared to the Standard Dynamic Range (SDR) used in normal broadcasts. Images display shades in bright areas that would otherwise become blown out and tones in dark areas that would become lost. HDR renders images with depth and three-dimensional effects that closely represent what you see with your own eyes.

    Hybrid Log-gamma (HLG):
    HLG is a "hybrid" format that enables the output of HDR images similar to HDR10 and Dolby Vision™ format. It can also display images with well-balanced brightness even in SDR TVs.

    HDR10:
    An HDR technology standard used with Ultra HD Blu-ray.

    Dolby Vision:
    An HDR technology standard developed by Dolby. Scenes are rendered with striking highlights, deeper darks, and vibrant colors. Dolby Vision is an HDR solution that creates an immersive, engaging cinematic experience in your home. A video tutorial is available for more information.
