Several major publishers stood behind an initiative.
Microsoft and Sony are joined by LG and Vizio in the interest group. The group is called the HDR Gaming Interest Group, and they aim to improve HDR gaming by providing guidelines and specifications regarding HDR development to the public.
Indeed, HDR (high-dynamic-range video for short) isn’t a widely used technology yet, although it allows images to show darker and brighter areas better than standard-dynamic-range video on a display that supports HDR. The PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One both support HDR, which is why it fits into our news’ stories.
Who else is in the group? Let’s see the major publishers: Activision Publishing, Capcom, Electronic Arts, Epic Games, Square Enix, Ubisoft, Unity Technologies, Vicarious Visions, WB Games… and there’s also ASUStek, Koninklijke Philips P.V., Panasonic, or Samsung, to name a few more companies.
It’s almost an industry-wide group, and we don’t see something similar happen too often!
