Indeed. One must wonder in respect and awe at the capability of the human eye, even this contrast level is nothing compared to what we can see in terms of dynamic range. It's extremely important from an evolutionary perspective to distinguish rapid, drastic, or subtle changes in luminance to properly identify prey or predators, in various light conditions, and at various times of day or night. There is nothing that's been left to chance, we are well adapted to living, surviving, and thriving in a world with extremes in dynamics, and that's thanks to billions of years of evolution. Changes and subtleties in color aren't as important, obviously. Color patterns are much easier to identify than shape silhouettes, and color is drastically reduced in the dark when it's most dangerous to be a living creature on planet earth.
It's great that engineers who designed and built our video signals and displays are finally achieving something resembling what we see when we can see, when we look in any direction other than that television's tiny window into other worlds...How can one be truly immersed in a flat image? People often say HDR looks 3D like, this is not a coincidence, a good part of 3D perception isn't from stereopsy but from lighting, and that's improved drastically with high contrast, high dynamic range displays.
I learned much from this website, thanks AVS! You have some truly great contributors here. Science and engineering, working hand in hand, taking into account the evolved qualities in our perceptual system to better deliver engaging experiences. It's only going to get better from here.
/Can't wait to see Star Wars 7 in 4K HDR on an OLED next year, even if I have to steal one! j/k
