ATSC 3.0 Advantages
ZapperBox will bring HDR to your TV
ZapperBox M1 will support HDR TV displays. This requires support for HDMI version 2.2 or higher. HDR is an acronym for High Dynamic Range Imaging. It is one of the primary benefits of some newer Ultra High Definition TVs and the new ATSC 3.0 standard. HDR extends the contrast and color range encoded in the transmission as well as the capabilities of the TV display. In a TV set HDR works primarily by turning off the LED colors not required behind portions of the TV display. HDR is also a green technology because it reduces the power consumption of a display by around 50%. Many side-by-side comparison tests of HDR vs 4K UHD have shown that HDR enhances the picture quality even more than 4K UHD video does. ATSC 3.0 provides the benefits of both HDR and 4K UHD.
