HDR10 is an open, royalty-free HDR (High Dynamic Range) standard developed by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA). TVs, streaming devices, and content providers widely support it. HDR10 uses a 10-bit color depth, which allows for a broader range of colors and brightness levels than traditional 8-bit displays.
One of the main advantages of HDR10 is its broad support and compatibility. Most HDR-capable TVs and streaming devices support it, and many streaming services and content providers, including Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, and YouTube, also support it.
HDR10 also uses static metadata, meaning the brightness and color levels are set during the mastering process and remain the same for the entire movie or show. HDR10 content can be played on any HDR-capable display and will look as intended.
Additionally, HDR10 supports the Rec.2020 color space, which is wider than the traditional Rec. 709 color space.
HDR10 can display more colors than conventional, creating more vivid and lifelike images.
HDR10 is considered the most widely supported and the minimum standard for HDR. Most devices support it, and it's the most affordable way to access HDR content.
