Elgato updates their 4K60 Pro capture card to support HDR pass-through

Elgato Gaming has announced that their 4K 60 Pro capture card now supports HDR Pass-Through, thanks to their updated 4K Capture Utility (version 1.2). 

This update will allow users of HDR compatible consoles and televisions/monitors to be used with HDR, with Elgato's 4K60 Pro capture card utilising its built-in tonemapping features to convert images into SDR for capture. Sadly, this method remains far from perfect, as right now there is no industry standard for tonemapping HDR content down to SDR quality levels, though Elgato has claimed that they will be using a "commonly used tonemapping algorithm" to keep images as close as possible to their originals. 

Elgato has also confirmed that some of their 4K60 Pro capture cards do not feature HDR capable hardware, but have confirmed that the company will replace their capture cards, free of charge, for those who desire the new feature. More details about this free exchange program are available here
    

    With this update, we’re adding HDR10 pass-through support to 4K60 Pro. Provided you have an Xbox One S, Xbox One X, PS4 or PS4 Pro and a HDR10 capable TV, you can now play in and experience HDR while capturing or streaming in SDR (Standard Dynamic Range) thanks to our built-in tonemapping. If you want to learn more about HDR, we’ve written up some details here.

To enable HDR pass-through, open the settings of 4K Capture Utility, go to the device tab, activate the checkbox labeled “Enable HDR pass-through” and follow the prompts. If after installing 4K Capture 1.2 you do not see the option to enable HDR pass-through, your 4K60 Pro does not feature the new HDR capable hardware. We will, free of charge, replace your existing 4K60 Pro to one that is capable of HDR pass-through.
