Netflix will add high dynamic range (HDR) content to its library in the coming year, it said.
“While 4K offers more pixels, HDR offers better pixels that have greater depth,” said Netflix.
It said HDR screens offer brighter highlights, more detail in dark scenes, and a wider colour range that closely matches the real world.
Season one of Marco Polo is already available in HDR – on the Ultra HD price plan – and is compatible with a 2016 Dolby Vision or HDR-enabled TV.
Netflix plans to show the following titles in Dolby Vision and HDR formats:
- A Series of Unfortunate Events
- Chef’s Table
- Knights of Sidonia
- Marvel’s Daredevil
- Marvel’s Iron Fist
- Marvel’s Jessica Jones
- Marvel’s Luke Cage
- Marvel’s The Defenders
- The Do-Over
- The Ridiculous Six
