Earlier this year, Amazon announced that high dynamic range (HDR) video was coming to Amazon Prime Instant Video. HDR video uses image capturing techniques coupled with new television technologies to produce a greater range of luminosity than traditional video. In layman’s terms, HDR video results in a brighter more vivid image without compromising picture detail. Amazon today made good on their promise and have announced that the premier season of Mozart in the Jungle and the first episode of Red Oaks are now available in HDR through the Amazon Instant Video apps on select smart TVs. Since viewing HDR video requires an HDR capable TV, there are only 2 Samsung TVs that currently support Amazon’s HDR videos. Is HDR a gimmick that will be forgotten like 3D TVs, or will we see it supported on the next generation of Fire TV devices? Let me know what you think in the comments.
