So why should you care that you can watch Star Wars: The Last Jedi in Dolby Vision and HDR10 on Vudu? Only because it’s an amazing way to watch your favorite movies.


Lightsabers will glow brighter and more intensely during battle scenes, the low-light darkness of the dark side will have more depth and look more sinister, and explosions will look amazingly detailed and realistic – you might even find yourself ducking from the flames. Heck, porgs will even look porg-ier. (Ok, so that one’s not really a thing.)



Basically, watching movies with HDR brings the cinematic experiences of the big screen to your screen – and who doesn’t want that?


How HDR Works It’s Magic


HDR stands for High Dynamic Range and it is breakthrough video technology that dramatically improves the viewing experience through improving picture brightness, contrast, and color. Vudu offers both types of HDR technology so that you can experience the format compatible with your device.

As you can see, HDR adds a lot of detail over SDR, or Standard Dynamic Range, the color range of traditional formats. And while there’s a lot that goes into HDR technology, we’re going to give you a crash course in what makes this technology so exciting.


So, picture quality is the result of a few different things. One you know pretty well, resolution, you know: 720 HD, 1080 Full HD, 4K. But two other factors that make up the better pixels of HDR, contrast ratio, or how bright and dark your TV can get, and color accuracy, how close to real-life (or the director’s vision) the colors can get.


HDR amps up the range of both contrast and color significantly, so colors are brighter, darks are darker, and you can see more of all the colors in between – otherwise known as Wide Color Gamut.




Super scientific chart, we know, but it does help illustrate the point that HDR delivers a much broader range of colors over SDR – and how Dolby Vision HDR is capable of even more.


So if you think about how amazed you were when you saw the difference between 1080p HD and 4K, imagine the same thing in terms of richness and brightness of color. That’s the Dolby Vision and HDR10 difference.
