PIONEER ADDS HDR10+ TO UDP-LX500 AND UDP-LX800 PLAYERS

Pioneer has just announced that it will issue a firmware update in Spring 2019 that will bring HDR10+ compatibility to its award-winning Universal Disc Players, the UDP-LX800 and UDP-LX500.

HDR10+ is the latest version of the HDR (High Dynamic Range) format. The current HDR10 standard uses static metadata present on an Ultra HD Blu-ray disc to initially set brightness which then remains unchanged for the duration of the disc when it's played back.

Where HDR10+ improves on HDR is because it uses dynamic tone-mapping metadata to allow brightness to be adjusted frame by frame. The results are much more dynamic looking, colourful and realistic HDR images, closer to the creator's original vision.

Naturally, to playback HDR10+ compatible Ultra HD Blu-ray discs, an HDR10+ ready TV and AV receiver (if the Ultra HD Blu-ray player goes via the receiver) will also be required.

The firmware release will be announced via Pioneer's website when it is ready.
