The hardware support at the moment doesn't really matter as there is no UHD Blu-ray hardware either. And now that is looking like it is being delayed until early 2016, so there is plenty of time for...

I also see that Lionsgate, Universal, Sony, Fox and DreamWorks have current titles using Auro and titles that are still coming later this year and into next year with Auro, so I'd say that is still...

I have almost no doubt that Maze Runner on UHD Blu-ray will feature Atmos. Nearly every initial UHD Blu-ray that Fox has announced had a theatrical Atmos mix so chances are good we'll see them...

Yet they've been supported by Sony, DreamWorks, Warner Bros, Disney, Universal, Lionsgate and 20th Century Fox theatrically. So I haven't heard a word about them not liking them either.

Only price we've seen is less than $500 and $30 for movies. Fox has announced their first titles according to The Hollywood Reporter. Problem I see is that only 1 of the 7 titles they announced...

While I generally agree with you for the most part with Auro I am still hedging because it still appears that we won't really see immersive audio in any real volume until UHD Blu-ray, and so far we...

But that wouldn't be the picture you get. The white level for cinema HDR (100 nit) is still like 14 fL with the extra range used for highlights. You're calibrating so your reference white is at 30...

I understand, but I never expected projection based HDR to be anywhere near what the spec is for UHD Blu-ray. I figured it would be more in line with the cinema standard of 100 nits, which equates to...

Lots of information missing from this announcement of sorts. Expanded gamut means nothing, I want to know if it does or does not do 100% P3. The HDR claim is vague too, does it conform to the HDR...

I agree on all points. I saw far less manipulation of the image with Epson's DI than with the JVC's. The majority of the time the JVC looks great with its DI but I still see it enough (especially in...
