Seattle – Amazon has begun streaming the first season of the Amazon original series “Mozart in the Jungle” in high dynamic range (HDR) for playback through the Amazon video app on Samsung SUHD TVs.
The company said it is the first streaming service to offer HDR programming. “Additional titles in HDR and expanded device compatibility can be expected this year as Amazon continues to work with Hollywood studios, technology leaders and global consumer electronics companies to expand the Amazon HDR experience,” the company said.
The debut season of the “Mozart in the Jungle” comedy series is available in HDR to Amazon Prime members at no extra cost, the company said
Amazon began offering movies and TV shows to Prime members and customers in 4K Ultra HD in 2014 and offers hundreds of 4K titles. Video in 4K with HDR “brings greater contrast to the screen with brighter colors, enhanced shadow details and distinct highlights to make images appear vivid, rich and lifelike,” the company said.
