HDR Gaming Interest Group

For a Better
HDR Gaming Experience

HDR gaming further immerses gamers into the content and has become a strong trend in the industry, but the results are not yet optimal which in some cases can impact gaming experiences. With a variety of HDR formats across TV displays, volunteering companies joined together to discuss how gaming experiences can provide a more immersive experience through HDR and collaboratively identified a set of best practices for HDR game content developers, game platforms as well as for TV display manufacturers. As a result, HDR content, combined with optimized game platforms and TV displays will be able to further leverage HDR technology for a truly immersive gaming experience. This collection of best practices proposed in the guideline will be easy to implement and will also support improved operability.
