Currently, there are five different varieties of HDR: HDR10, HDR10+, HLG, Dolby Vision and Advanced HDR by Technicolor.

HDR10 is the original and currently most common form of HDR. It’s an open standard that has been adopted by numerous manufacturers, service providers (Amazon and Netflix) and the Blu-ray Disc Association (BDA).

According to the CEA (Consumer Electronics Association), HDR10 must meet certain standards, including 4:2:0 colour sub-sampling, 10-bit bit depth and the BT.2020 colour space. It applies those specific standards to the picture displayed by the TV.

As a general rule, all 4K TVs currently on the market and going forward should feature HDR10. This means your TV will be compatible with the most widely available 4K Blu-ray discs, 4K players and 4K streaming content – and it should offer a far better picture than a 4K TV without any HDR.
