What I really want is 3D + 10-bit HDR version of this movie.

I wonder if when the UHD 2D HDR version comes out, it might be possible to re-encode each 3D frame with some kind of un-tonemapping.

To do this I believe you need to buy an HD Fury Integral which can output 4K SDR (in rec 2020 or 709).

As much as I believe this fixation some people have for SDR (yuck) is absurd, I'm totally...

There's life beyond 24p, and 3D will never take off until we get beyond 24p because that's the true thing holding it back. I worked in VR filmmaking for a year and the very notion of using 24 fps for...

I'm sure passive 3D is better than active shutter glasses (certainly cheaper), not to mention smart because 3D Blurays are 1/2 res so the doing even / odd interlaced polarization on a 4K TV is smart....

I think the new Optoma laser DLP, the ZH55 is more interesting (at that price), personally. The ZH55 includes 3D and FI, which makes it a more appropriate choice for a 1080p DLP projector IMO.

You're welcome. It's a really lame "gotcha" to have to worry about which HDMI ports on your TV / AVR actually support HDCP 2.2 vs 1.4.

Glad you sorted it out. AVS forum has helped me a ton over...

Some games like the latest Lara Croft have 1080p60 side-by-side 3D modes and looks awesome. Yes, it's half (horizontal) res per eye, but at 60hz per eye you get lots of extra detail that way since...

Most TVs have supported Deep Colour (10-bit or 12-bit, i.e. 30-bit or 36-bit total. sometimes even 48-bit) since HDMI 1.3 started supporting it ten years ago. Only there was no reason to activate it,...

Technically HDMI 2.0 can do 2160p120 @ 8bpc, using YCbCr 420. To clarify, 420 is exactly half the bandwidth of 444 / RGB, ergo, if you cut bandwidth requirements of 2160p60 in half, you can double...
