It's not a problem with brightness, a Kuro can easily do 35 foot lamberts for peak white. That's definitely not a "problem." If you're having a problem, then your SXRD's brightness is set too high in the wrong environment. 35 ftl is the exact same brightness a telecinist uses.
The problem can only be one of three:
1) Your ambient light is more than what SMPTE recommends a telecinist uses. Solution, reduce lighting and reflections.
2) You have other settings wrong on your Kuro, which are affecting gamma. Solution, use correct settings and not your preference.
3) You're picking out a detail you're not supposed to see anyway, or one that the telecinist didn't properly set. Solution, call up Sony Picture Studios and tell them you think they made a mistake in the encode.
But the fact of the matter is, the Kuro isn't meant for more brightness. If brightness is a problem, there's something else that needs fixing.
