I understand the want/need to create something "proprietary" to differentiate yourself from your competition. But this isn't doing anybody any good.
If the objective is to sell more TV's, more AVR's, more Bluray/4K/UHD discs and everything else along the chain - - then you're better off with open standards that evolve where everyone can jump on board and content is easily created and reasonably priced & distributed.
How about the delivery mechanism? Streaming is where it's at IF (and a big if) you have the bandwidth and technology to economically distribute content to the masses. That's why I'm a big fan of DD+ for Dolby Atmos. But alas, very little Dolby Atmos content available that way today.
Confusing buyers with options without standards doesn't get people excited - - it just prolongs buying decisions and buyer's remorse if a new fangled technology was just created and you're SOL because you bought your TV two years ago.
I guess I'm old school on selling. Make it easy for the customer to be wowed and buy now. Keep the technology transparent to them - - as much as possible. Make it easy to connect various devices (no thanks to HDCP) and focus on content and selling improvements on YOUR implementation of current technology.
When's HDR 20+ coming out?
