Gaming Tech 101 Episode 1: SDTV

with 2 comments


What was supposed to be the first three episodes of Gaming Tech 101 got expanded into a 3-part first episode thanks to everyone’s discussion of and confusion around 4K and HDR.

This first part (1a) covers the era of the Standard Definition Television (SDTV), most notably the CRT.  Fred talks about what the technology does and how it works with consoles.

  2. So, you MUST have a 4K TV to have HDR? That is some of the bullest bull that I’ve heard.

    Regardless, this was very informative. If the next episode is about sound, consider covering all the sound FORMATS used in major consoles.
