YouTube brings HDR to live streams

The video streaming platform YouTube announced on Tuesday that it has also launched HDR for live streams. This announcement came after the company rolled out HDR support for prerecorded video content uploaded to the platform more than four years ago.

Google’s YouTube announced the launch of HDR in live streams all in one blog entry. HDR – which stands for High Dynamic Range – video offers a wider range of colors and higher contrast. The whites of an HDR video get lighter and the blacks get darker. The overall picture is much livelier than that of standard videos.

With this new feature, users are more likely to notice a dramatic difference between HDR and non-HDR videos than between 4k and 1080p videos. YouTube introduced 4k live streaming in 2016.

Viewers can stream HDR content on any supported mobile device, TV, or streaming set-top box or stick. YouTube gave the developers an overview of what they need to stream live in HDR as well.

This is the second time this month that YouTube has released some big new features for the company’s live streaming capabilities.

Last week, YouTube released new updates to its Premiere feature, which allows developers to broadcast recorded uploaded videos as a one-time livestream when they are first released.

With the new features, developers could broadcast a teaser trailer or countdown before the video debuted. The update also gave developers the ability to create live streams before the video premiered and seamlessly transition into the newly uploaded video after the live portion of the stream ended.
