As in the previous year, three out of four TVs sold in the year are Ultra HD sets (2.0 million units), almost all of which (99 percent) support at least one High Dynamic Range (HDR) process. These devices can display content with a significantly greater contrast range as well as more natural colours in finer gradations. 83 percent of HDR TVs support not only static HDR standards but also dynamic HDR processes that define the desired picture impression per scene or even frame (2021: 80 percent).
