“We are pleased to provide this new Unreal Engine plug-in directly to studios and developers to allow faster access to HDR10+ games on certified monitors and televisions,” said Bill Mandel, co-manager HDR10+ Technologies LLC. “We believe this new plug-in will further expand the adoption of HDR10+ Gaming across the industry.”

Other benefits include convenient automatic calibration, optimized dynamic HDR rendering, low latency operation, and a more simplified QA test process.
