Why Amazon thinks you'll love HDR streaming video
CSMonitor.com reports that another day brings another streaming video buzzword, and today’s is HDR. HDR stands for high dynamic resolution, and although it’s traditionally associated with photographs, it has applications for video as well. Amazon has capitalized upon HDR technology before its competitors, adding it to one of its popular original shows, but whether it makes any difference to you will depend on your TV and your network connection.
Amazon announced its support for HDR content on Jun. 24, and the first program is already available to stream: Mozart in the Jungle. This Amazon Original Series debuted last year, and tells the story of the often lewd and lascivious classical music scene in New York City. In order to take advantage of its HDR enhancements, consumers will need both an Amazon Prime account and a TV that supports the technology.
