YouTube adds support for HDR video to the platform

 
YouTube has today announced that their video platform now supports HDR content, allowing videos to support a more realistic range of colours and contrast. 

Alongside resolutions of 4K, HDR support is one of the biggest selling points of modern high-end televisions, though at this time there are several competing standards for HDR like HDR10 and Dolby Vision. Right now both the PS4, PS4 Pro and Xbox One S supports HDR, with Google's upcoming Chromecast Ultra (4K) releasing with support soon. Samsung's 2016 lineup of 4K TVs will also soon be updated with HDR playback support for its built-in applications

This change is similar to YouTube's adoption of 4K Video, 60FPS video and 360-degree video, though sadly right now the majority of YouTube creators and viewers will be unable to create or view HDR ready content due to the lack of HDR devices and displays on the market. 

HDR will be a huge selling point for devices moving forward, but at least YouTube is ready for the change.
