HDRÂ content offers better brightness and color capabilities compared to traditional content (sometimes called standard dynamic range [SDR] content). Traditional content typically shows details in a bright part of a scene or a darker part of a scene but not in both parts at the same time. For example, if the shot focuses on a bright window in the scene, details in the shadow are lost.
Whereas HDR can show a wider range of colors and light and more details in between the extremes. Colors are more vivid and unique in HDR content. Additionally, bright parts of a scene are brighter while dark parts can be darker, and you donâ€™t lose any details.
You can calibrate yourÂ built-in HDR displayÂ to get the video quality and look you want when youâ€™re watchingÂ streaming HDR video. By calibrating your display, you can set the balance between the details in the bright parts of a scene and the details in the dark parts of it. For example, the bright parts of a scene might include things like sunshine, fire, and light reflections. The dark parts of a scene could include shadows or dimly-lit rooms.
This tutorial will show you how to calibrate the built-in display for HDR video for your account in Windows 11.
