  2. The top-of-the-line Sony Z9D TV sets have been announced for the US and Europe. They consist of 65", 75" and 100" sizes. But word from Sony Australia is that only the 65" and 100" will be brought into Australia. SONY! Please say it isn't so! If anything, they should bring in just the 65" and 75" and forget the 100". Don't think they'll sell many of those. http://www.sony.com/electronics/televisions/xbr-z9d-series I had my eye on the 75" model. I hope Sony Australia changes their mind.

  5. I don't mean to rain on anyones parade, but you can setup the projector to make SDR video look just like the "great HDR image", and setup older JVC's to look the same as the new models as well, for both SDR and HDR. The new models are not brighter, don't go as black and everything in between is adjustable via the projectors internal adjustments and or external equipment. So if you know what you are doing you can have whatever "look" you like with any projector and make any good projector look like any other. The advantage for the the "new" models is more pleasing re mapping of HDR video for use with what is an SDR display device, a task previous models didn't do very well by default. They need a range of custom gamma maps that can be called up to best suite each individual movie title for best results and the new models still will. The new automated system will no doubt be an advance for the average consumer who doesn't want to play around with gamma maps or doesn't know how, but it will always be a compromise. If you want to have your SDR movies look like your HDR movies you will still need to implement custom gamma maps for SDR. JVC could have automated this just like the auto HDR mapping but chose not too, probably because it would show people that HDR on a projector is nothing more than tweaked SDR and thats not good for marketing.
  6. Fortunately common sense has prevailed and the BBC and the Japanese public broadcaster NHK's research divisions have been able to bring the Dolby Vision and High Dynamic Range TV standards together in the International Telecommunications Union's BT.2100 : Image parameter values for high dynamic range television for use in production and international programme exchange. The Dolby vision was fundamentally designed for use in the cinema where viewing is in the dark and so added a lot of meta-data or control signals to the video. HDR was designed for the television market where there is ambient light in the viewing area. HDR does not use meta-data, HDR does require an increase in the maximum brightness of the screen to 2000 cd/m² so that the minimim brightness is about 0.1 cd/m² in the blackest part of the picture. This will allow a little light to be reflected from the screen. HDR is also much more compressable using h.265 or HEVC than Dolby Vision because Meta data is commands not image data. So for broadcast UHD, the UK already is using DVB-T2's higher data capacity so they will need to compress all signals using h.265 to give a similar number of programs/transmitter regardless of the definition. The BBC is demonstrating "UHD Trial of Planet Earth II in HDR" on line from now to early next year http://www.bbc.co.uk/rd/blog/2016-12-hdr-4k-uhd-iplayer-trial-planet-earth?utm_source=SMPTE%2FHPA+Email+Subscriber+List&utm_campaign=18c0585b10-Newswatch&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_08becf377a-18c0585b10-267574377&mc_cid=18c0585b10&mc_eid=e7bdc5fc1e I do not know if this test is being goblocked.
