BandiView HDR support

HDR stands for High Dynamic Range. An HDR technique offers a widened range of brightness and color than SDR (Standard Dynamic Range) used in traditional images formats like JPEG.

BandiView supports an image output using HDR. If both hardware and software support HDR, the app can express more natural and realistic details that only the human eyes can tell.

The following is an example of the same HDR image opened with BandiView on LG 48C1 OLED TV; the left shows when HDR settings are on, and the right shows when the settings are off. You can see the expression of brightness and color more optimized on the left side, where HDR settings are enabled.

To view an HDR image with BandiView, the following requirements should be met first:

  • Windows 10 or 11 should be installed on your computer.
  • Your display should support HDR10.
  • Your graphics card should support HDR. (Mostly does if released in 2015 or later.)
  • HDR settings in Windows should be turned on.
  • The format of the image should support HDR.

HDR image formats

BandiView supports HDR for the following image formats:

  • AVIF
  • EXR
  • JXR

BandiView does not yet support HDR for the following formats, and an image output of these formats currently uses SDR instead:

  • RAW (DNG, CRW, ARW, ...)
  • HDR Tiff
