Amazon offers Prime Members to watch ‘Mozart in the Jungle’ Series in HDR Format

Amazon announced today, the launch of the new high dynamic range (HDR) technology on only one show and to only the Prime customers in US, to begin with, making Amazon to be the first video service to offer titles in this enhanced visual format.

Amazon today expanded support for HDR (high dynamic range) on Amazon Instant Video as it launched this HDR format for just the US Amazon prime members to begin with. Also, the format will be available on just one Amazon original show.

The Amazon Prime members in the US can watch one full series in HDR format of the Amazon Original ‘Mozart in the Jungle’ and also the pilot episode of the Amazon Original ‘Red Oaks’.

The main contribution of a HDR format is an enhanced contrast and deep shadows, with richer colour and therefore, better picture quality that keeps the viewers glued as the scenes look more realistic and engaging.

Amazon announced,” Prime members in the US can instantly watch the debut season of the Amazon Original Series, ‘Mozart in the Jungle’ in HDR at no additional cost to their membership, marking the first video service to offer HDR”.

It has been reported that the first season available for fans in an upgraded visual experience will be exciting as the enhanced quality makes every scene look even better and viewers would really enjoy watching the video in HDR format.

However, wait before you grab your HDR set as due to limited availability this year, those models already in the market that support 4K and HDR video will be fairly expensive. Furthermore, several companies have already started working on extensive catalogues in a bid to grab the early bird advantage.

Another competitor, Netflix has also committed to expand support for HDR video in 2015, claiming that its original series ‘Marco Polo’ will be released in Dolby and UHD Alliance format.
