HDR Coming to Nvidia Shield TV via Next Software Update, Includes YouTube 60FPS 4K
The upcoming Android N update is capable of supporting High Dynamic Range (HDR), but it seems like Nvidia wants it even before the new OS’s launch. The company is set to roll out new version 3.2 software to its Shield TV that will make it the first Android TV hardware to support HDR video.
New capability will open doors to VUDA and Netflix libraries to HDR content. High Dynamic Range uses a combination of several different video feeds at different light levels combined in a way to make a video image with vibrant colors at all lighting levels. Check out HDR video demonstration below:
In addition to this, the v3.2 update will also add 60FPS 4K playback support for YouTube videos, as well as allow NVIDIA’s Gamestream service to access to HDR video. There is no word on when the new software update will be available, but we’ll let you know whenever it does.
In other news, Resident Evil 5, which was first announced as one of the Shield TV’s Android-native games back in March last year, will be hitting the Play Store tomorrow.
Thanks, Android Police.
