What Is The HDMI Black Level Setting?

Last Update date : 2017.05.31

The HDMI Black Level option will compensate for the black level range of an HDMI input. When this option is set it can expand the black level range to 0-255 from a YPrPb (Component) color source. When an HDMI device that supports an RGB color range and already use the 0-255 HDMI black level range is connected, the HDMI Black Level option will be grayed out. There are four options for setting HDMI Black Level;

  1. Off: Turns the HDMI Black Level enhancement off.
  2. Low: Sets the HDMI Black Level enhancement for low.
  3. Normal: Sets the HDMI Black Level enhancement for medium.
  4. High: Sets the HDMI Black Level enhancement for high.

If the external device you have connected does not support the full black range that the TVs panel can support you can enable the HDMI Black Level function and have the TV compensate for this lack of black level.
