You can now broadcast on YouTube using HDR, perfect for streaming video games

Starting today, both content creators and viewers will see improved live broadcasts thanks to the adoption of HDR in YouTube broadcasts.

For the first time, YouTube allows the broadcast of live content with support for HDR. This means that live broadcasts will offer a more intense color ratio.

This novelty comes from today, where creators will be able to broadcast their live shows with compatible devices. Viewers will need to have compatible equipment, be it an HDR TV, Chromecast Ultra, or Android device.

The HDR format is also compatible with HDR10 and HLG. Both formats greatly enhance the experience for the viewer, although the supported equipment is smaller compared to the HDR standard.

YouTube continues to improve the content creator experience

In 2016, YouTube implemented the display of content in HDR, but it has not been until now when it has confirmed the broadcast with this novelty in live content. Also in the same year, the company allowed live broadcast with 4K quality on supported equipment, as reported by The Verge.

YouTube believes that this will enhance the use of live content, such as gaming content and any event that is broadcast live, be it sports or a specific event in mobility. This is possible thanks to compatible mobile devices, although of course, it is also possible with static recording equipment. One of the proposals to view this content is the new Sony Smart TV that we recently analyzed.

What is HDR?

HDR is the acronym for High Dynamic Range -High Dynamic Range: Its function is to balance the exposure levels in areas of greater and lesser luminosity. Thanks to this, the captured capture will offer a balance at both ends to offer a more homogeneous result.

It can be used in both photography and video to improve results, and although it is not always convenient to use it - it depends on the results we want to achieve - it is a good way to capture all areas of the frame.

Although HDR has been with us for several years on mobile devices, it has recently been implemented in video recording through different mobile manufacturers. One of them is the new Apple iPhone 12.
