Panasonic and Samsung are teaming up with 20th Century Fox to create an open, royalty-free dynamic metadata platform for high dynamic range (HDR)through a certification and logo program, tentatively called HDR10+.
The three companies intend to form a licensing entity that will begin licensing the HDR10+ platform in January. The entity will license the metadata broadly to content companies; manufacturers of Ultra HD TVs, Blu-ray Disc players/recorders, and set-top boxes; and SoC vendors. Licensing will be royalty-free with a nominal administrative fee. Further details will be announced at CES 2018 in Las Vegas.
