I currently have the DVDO AVLAB-TPG, but was told that I would need the HD-Fury Integral if I wanted to use the DVDO TPG. Are there any disadvantages of using the HD-Fury Integral and DVDO TPG combo as opposed to having a AccuPel DGA-6000 or Murideo 6-G?
Hi, If you want a complete solution for both HDR10/Dolby Vision, Murideo Fresco SIX-G can do that job, it's working with LightSpace/CalMAN/ChromaPure, but there a lot of money for HT enthusiasts. Accupel will be great choice when it will be supported by LightSpace/CalMAN additionally from ChromaPure and when it will have Dolby Vision patch generation capability.
I have HD Linker and Integral but I prefer the HD Linker with my DVD AVLab TPG, because linker has scalling capabilities also, so having DVDO AVLab TPG configured to output 4:4:4 or RGB @ 2160p24 with HD Linker which is adding the metadata/AVI infoframe and sending the REC.2020 flag also (for displays may need rec2020 flag to provide their wider gamut..native); In HD Linker since it's scaller also you can configure it to send other resolutions (like 2160p60) or other color bitdepth (10/12 etc.)
About Dolby Vision, CalMAN can trigger only Dolby Vision mode (not HDR10), using it's internal software patch generator.
CalMAN's internal software pattern generator with require an accurate 1080p RGB output from a notebook/PC to trigger Dolby Vision mode. Unless you test this to your setup, you can't be sure if it will or not, it has to do with your video card output. Usually Intel or Nvidia properly configured can have accurate output, while using AMD it's very difficult to have accurate output in RGB.
Dolby Vision is not delivering dynamic metadata using additional metadata infoframe like the way HDR10 is using now with HDMI 2.0a for static metadata or will deliver later using HDMI 2.1 with dynamic metadata. (when there will be movies released mastered with dynamic metadata)
Dolby Vision sends RGB signal (HDMI 1.4 can be used also) and it's including dynamic metadata internally to the signal.
Internally the video is actually has 4:2:0 or 4:2:2 chroma sub-sampled 12-bit HDR signal which is called 'data wrapper'.
So Data Wrapper is like standard 8-bit RGB signal but it's data inside are 12-bit HDR with dynamic metadata.
Having the dynamic metadata inside the stream it's better for timing/sync reasons.
