GeForce RTX graphics cards have learned to convert SDR videos

GeForce RTX graphics cards have learned to convert SDR videos to HDR in an instant using AI

NVIDIA has introduced the RTX Video HDR feature for GeForce RTX graphics accelerators. Just as RTX Video Super Resolution improves the quality of older videos, RTX Video HDR uses artificial intelligence to convert standard dynamic range (SDR) videos into high dynamic range (HDR) videos. To take full advantage of the new feature, you will need an HDR10 compatible monitor that is supported by Windows.

RTX Video HDR is part of the new NVIDIA GeForce Game Ready driver 551.23, which adds support for the RTX 4070 Ti Super graphics card. The Video HDR feature works in both Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome, and experts say the effect of using it is quite pronounced, especially when switching between SDR and HDR modes. Similar results were previously observed when testing RTX Video Super Resolution – the effect is most noticeable immediately after turning on the function, and after a while the view adjusts.

To use the new feature if you have an HDR monitor and an NVIDIA RTX graphics card, simply update the driver to the latest version 551.23 and enable RTX Video HDR in the NVIDIA Control Panel in the Video -> section “Adjust video settings”. .

RTX Video HDR requires a GeForce RTX graphics card with Tensor Cores, first introduced in RTX 20 series accelerator GPUs. The latest NVIDIA driver 551.23 also adds support for ultra-low latency mode for DirectX 12 games. This mode is recommended for use in games without NVIDIA Reflex support as it reduces the render queue directly at the driver level.

NVIDIA uses AI techniques in its Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) system to improve frame rates and image quality in games. In 2022, NVIDIA introduced Deep Learning Dynamic Super Resolution (DLDSR) to improve image quality by playing games at higher resolutions. NVIDIA Broadcast uses AI to create the illusion of people looking into each other’s eyes (the eye contact effect) during video calls.
