Hi HD Fury, I'm interested in this product but would like to know more about it.
I have a 1080p projector, that accepts, processes, and displays 10-bit video over HDMI, but until UHD Blurays come out there is no actual 10-bit video content. So I'm thinking of buying the Integral so that I can see 10-bit video in DCI P3 color space on my normally Rec 709 projector. Will that work? Or will video coming in from a UHD Bluray player be downgraded by your processor to 8-bit rec 709.
My other question, which is related, it the idea is to use a cheap Yellow Notch Filter (YNF) to expand the color gamut of rec 709 projectors to be able to display the entire Digital Cinema color space (DCI P3):
DCI P3 color filters for Rec 709 projectors
So, I guess question two is : since I am a graphics programmer, can I code custom EOTF -> Gamma colorspace conversion processing into the Integral's firmware, or is it possible for the Integral to support passing DCI P3 video "raw", i.e. in 10-bit, without being compressed down into rec 709. This would make your product substantially a better investment for people with 1080p projectors (or even 4K) that do not support P3 color space already.
Let me know! I'm looking forward to the UHD Bluray generation and your products make me excited to think I can apply some processing to take advantage of the new increased color gamut and bit depth on my current projector. Suddenly a 200 dollar piece of equipment would become super useful. From what I can tell, if you connect a UHD Bluray player to a 1080p HDTV or projector, it will only output 8-bit, rec 709 video since it assumes that 10-bit, P3 support is limited to UHD HDTVs when that is not actually true. That is an unnecessary downgrade in video quality, and paying 200 dollars for this device to get access to DCI P3 color (plus HDR tone mapping?) would certainly be interesting.
I'd like to know what sort of software tools, like compilers, etc, that you provide for users to apply custom processing to the incoming video signal.
