HDR, or High Dynamic Range, refers to a type of display technology that allows for much higher contrast and color depth compared to their Standard Dynamic Range (SDR) counterparts. The primary advantage of HDR over SDR is found in both bright and dark scenes, details such as shadows become sharper and crisper while well-lit scenes appear much more vivid and less washed out.
Should I Turn on HDR on My Monitor?
HDR should be almost always turned on for movies and supported games for a better viewing experience overall. Please note certain streaming platforms or games may not support HDR content however and it is recommended to temporarily turn off HDR in these situations.
