NVIDIA RTX Video HDR Turns Any Video Into HDR Content

NVIDIA RTX Video HDR Turns Any Video Into HDR Content

NVIDIA is adding more AI features to its RTX GPUs – this time it’s a feature that applies HDR to any SDR content on compatible applications. The RTX Video HDR builds on top of RTX Video Super Resolution, which enables AI-assisted upscaling using the GPU’s Tensor Cores.

Needless to say, to enable this feature you must first have an HDR-capable display, preferably the one with DisplayHDR 600 and up (OLED displays with DisplayHDR True Black should work as-is). The said display must accept HDR10 signals, which should be supported in all HDR displays. Like the VSR, this requires GeForce RTX 20 series GPUs and up – due to the requirement for Tensor Cores to make this work.

Given that NVIDIA didn’t specify any additional information on hardware or software support, it’s safe to say it’s supposed in Chromium-based browsers like Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge (others like Opera and Vivaldi should work). To enable the feature, follow these steps:

  1. Download and install the newest available Game Ready or Studio Ready driver
  2. Ensure Windows’ HDR features are enabled in System > Display > HDR
  3. Open the NVIDIA Control Panel by right clicking your desktop
  4. Navigate to Adjust Video Image Settings on the left nav of the app
  5. Tick “Super Resolution” and “High Dynamic Range”

For those who don’t have HDR displays available to see the difference, you can watch the video below to see the (simulated) change with the feature applied.

Pokdepinion: Too bad I don’t have an HDR display on hand to try this out. RTX VSR Upscaling is pretty solid, though!
