HDR10+ Making its way now

I think it will be a while before it trickles down to other content; but something that we are watching closely.



That’s nice to hear! The list of HDR10+ Blu-ray’s will grow larger this year and some is already released!

List of HDR10+ Blu-ray’s:

  • ALIEN (1979)
  • THE HATE U GIVE (2018)
  • ROBIN HOOD (2018)
  • WE, THE MARINES (2017)
  • WIDOWS (2018)

I think the IMAX Enhanced program is going to boost HDR10+ content on discs.


I didn’t even notice… I picked up Bad Times as the El Royale and didn’t even notice that it was HDR10+

I saw no difference, but I don’t think that my Hisense supports 10+. At least it played normally.


I think Samsung, Philips (europa) and Panasonic is the only one supporting HDR10+ at the moment.
TCL and Hisense just joined in, so I guess all 2019 models will support it.


On my Samsung I only see HDR in the logo bar, not sure if hdr10 or hdr10+ will be displayed separately . On several HDR10 mkv’s I don’t see it appearing, so I’m curious if someone can confirm HDR10/HDR10+ in logo bar.


Right now I don’t think there is any way to check if your Samsung TV is displaying HDR10+, people have been complaining about this for a while at Samsung. Vero4k/4k+ does not support HDR10+ yet, so the only way to play a HDR10+ bluray right now is trough a HDR10+ compatible bluray player like the one from Panasonic. The bluray player can then display info about the source and show you that the content are played back with HDR10+ enabled.


thank you. I’ll wait then until samsung maybe releasing an update about logo visibility. Not sure if I want to buy a bluray player just to see it or not :wink:


there are also the media players “OPPO” as it is the model 203. that already runs with Hdr10 +. I have a Panasonic FZ800 OLED in which if there is Hdr10 + a different logo comes out. I have checked it for the first time yesterday. watching the bohemian rapsody movie.
The truth is that it is a very promising format. the colorimetry he gives is sensational.
It would be great to incorporate it into the Vero 4K. Will this ever be possible?



Hello, what’s up?

I would like to be a bit insistent on the HDR10 + theme. I do not insist on when a new update based on Kodi 18 will come out, no. I can wait.
But if I would like to know if this update or any future will come with HDR10 + support.

The why. Mainly because the titles with this format are already being distributed and I would be interested in giving full use to my new panasonic OLED TV with hdr10 +.

Then second is, because a friend sells me a device (Oppo) which does have this support, but before making a “silly” expense I would like to know if Vero will sooner or later be able to support it. This way I save the purchase of this Oppo.

Thanks and best regards!


I think it’s premature for Sam to answer at this point. Maybe the team is still checking if this is possible with only a software update.


I do not know. Let’s see if they give us any indication.


@Fydo - If you ask me, my money is that Vero can update to HDR10+ :smile:


Yes hehe. The oppo is quite expensive. Although they make me a very good offer by being a trusted friend.


Does anyone has a sample file which definitely contains hdr10+? So far I found none, which can be tested on my Q9FN tv, USB or via Vero.

And the only content mentioned is on Blu-ray which supposed to have HDR10+ (Robin Hood, A Beautiful Planet etc etc) and I don’t plan to buy such a device, as I’ve own an Vero 4K+.

On Usenet I can’t find samples that really contains HDR10+. Let’s say Media-info can’t detect it to be in there.


I think OSMC team can’t give any guarantee that the Mali 450 (Vero 4k) will be able to deliver HDR10+.

Even Arm only offer Dolby Vision compatibility (the “equivalent” to HDR10+) in their latests G31 (or better) platforms. And it’s curious that Arm doesn’t even name HDR10+ in their latests products.

ATM I only hope Vero 4K could, some day, deliver HDR10 metadata (MaxFALL, MaxCCL,…). We will see… the HW and the drivers has its own limits.


On forums like doom9.org it looks like they are still working out how get the separate metadata for hdr10+ play back properly once ripped.


Yes there is. Bohemiam Rapsody, Bad times for the royal, Widows, etc …

By the way, I do not quite understand what the MaxFALL, MaxCCL metadata is.
Does someone explain to me?



Those are meant to tell your display the boundaries/limits/Max levels of HDR frames. Some display ignore those data, others don’t (depends on firmware sometimes). When not present, display must make a guess. Those are useful for tone mapping (JVC protectors at least) and to avoid clipping.


@Fydo so you have those “samples” were HDR10+ is recognizable? Or do you refer to the HDR Blu-ray’s?

@Zooicidal That is was I’ve seen as well, there is a tool to “rip” the HDR10+ metadata from the original Blu-ray, but still not a good solution to set it into a “origional copy” :wink:
