HDR10 doesn't scale well. In fact, HDR10 content on future TVs will look worse as those TV sets improve and peak brightness and darkness levels get better and and colour reproduction improves — sort of like trying to watch standard definition content on a 4K set.

Thumbs up TCL rivals Samsung and LG with flagship 8K AI QLED TV

http://www.whathifi.com/news/tcl-rivals-samsung-and-lg-with-flagship-8k-ai-qled-tv
Quote:
The 8K QLED TV comes in just one size: 75in. It uses a Quantum Dot display with wide colour gamut and 1000-nit peak brightness, and features 832 local dimming zones designed to allow for precise backlight control.
Quote:

On paper at least, the numbers look good to make the most out of HDR content, of which the 8K TV supports HDR10 and Dolby Vision flavours.
Dolby Vision, Quantum Dots and 8K.

Well I said in my OP that the players would be first to go. BUT NOT LIKE THIS. Of course this could be unfounded rumor, but the HDR10+ support sight does not list any Samsung players. http://www.hdr10plus.org/current-adopters/

So Samsung fights to screw up Dolby Vision on Blu-ray and then drops support for HDR10+. If this is true then Samsung STINKS.

I'll believe it when I see actual proof. I'm super skeptical. There were lots of rumors in 2015 thag Sony's tv division was gonna be liquidated/sold off/closed down, how'd that go?

And I Guess the hdr10+ site is not up to date because owners have confirmed that hdr10+ tags are there when hooked up to a capable tv but the tag downgrades to hdr10 when hooked up to a non capable tv. So the device is clearly capable.

Sounds like the industry is forcing the consumer to digital streaming of UHD HDR content. I wouldn't be surprised if Sony and LG are not considering this as well.

4K discs are selling pretty well from what I've read. This seems like more of a Samsung problem than an industry problem.

But it makes one wonder how all these other manufactures are implementing HDR10+ in their players?

“Together, Dolby and Panasonic are bringing best in class audio and imaging technology to Panasonic’s TVs,” said John Couling, SVP, Commercial Partnerships. “Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos perfectly complement the GZ2000’s advanced display, transforming it into an entertainment powerhouse.”



Pretty soon Samsung will be the only major manufacturer not supporting Dolby Vision, if not already.

I've been saying that HDR10+ is far to late, to unseat Dolby Vision. If Samsung refuses add to DV, there only play is HDR10+.

If it is to coexist beside DV, Samsung would have to give up on, "differentiation" of PQ, something they have buttered their bread with, for years.

If a Dolby Vision Logo and a HDR10+ Logo can coexist on an Official Dolby Website, how about yours.

Thumbs up And The Winner Of CES 2019 Is... Dolby

http://www.forbes.com/sites/johnarc.../#3f428daf1589


Quote:
Dolby's presence could be felt pretty much everywhere you went on the show floor, from TVs to physical and streamed media, set-top boxes, PCs and laptops, mobile phones, tablets, speakers, AV receivers, and 4K Blu-ray players. Even better, as I’ll get into more later, I got the feeling that Dolby is starting to work more closely with individual brands on ever-more imaginative hardware projects to help them get the most from Dolby’s picture and sound enhancing technologies.

Quote:
On the opposite side of the coin, brands which hadn’t adopted Dolby technologies at the CES were starting to look increasingly isolated. Especially now that growing public awareness of Dolby means that more and more consumers are looking for and expecting to find Dolby features on their new AV hardware. This is all a far cry from me wondering a couple of CESes ago if Dolby Vision, at least, was in danger of floundering.
