Not to mention that virtually all MPEG compressed content (DVD, Blu-Ray, Digital Cable, Satellite) is compressed by 4:2:0 - even if the uncompressed source was full chroma resolution it would just get thrown away!

Interesting read. My brain turned off slightly when he started talking up the merits of HDR blending. I'm not a fan of the process - the images just aren't natural.

Thanks for that link. Dennis have you got anything recent from Joe Kane? I know he has a 4k "affinity" screen product out. I'd be curious to see his take on the next five years of display technology.
