Re: QD enhanced LCD TVs
Also, the only time HDR will be “right” is when viewing HDR content. There is no consumer (or cinema as far as I know) HDR content now. So purchasing an HDR-capable display and turning HDR on for viewing SD or HD content is going to be as “wrong” as using Dynamic mode or any of the other settings video displays have that marketing departments demand, but that do nothing but make images more inaccurate and unnatural. Ditto for wide color gamut… without wide color gamut sources, applying a wide color gamut feature to SD or HD content will just make images look less accurate because the TV can only GUESS at what color was intended in the original content.
Maybe someone from TXH can comment on HDR for cinema… today’s illumination technology and cinema screen sizes make it difficult to get more than 16 fL white on a cinema screen. How the heck will cinema projectors get to the point they can produce 160 or more fL in order to be able to support HDR? Are we getting to a point where home video is going to outperform cinema in this regard? Or will cinema get rid of projectors and switch to giant-flat-panel displays in order to move into “HDR” imaging? It is difficult to imagine seeing 160 fL white on a screen the size of a cinema screen! The theater will be flooded with light.
