PLEASE HELP - Can a 10-bit TV display 48-bit Deep Color?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I looked at a past thread on here and it seems that there are 10-bit, 12, and 16-bit displays in TV's.

So would a 10-bit display be able to display and process 48-bit deep color(16-bit X 3)? Or would you need a 16-bit display to be able to do that?

And something extra that I would appreciate help on: Is the Samsung HL-T6189S a 10-bit display or is it something else?

A 10 bit display can only display 10 bits per channel (30 bit color). However the TV that the display is in might be able to accept 12 or 16 bit data, only displaying the 10 most significant bits of the 12 or 16 it receives.

A display with "deep color" can ACCEPT an HDMI v1.3 signal with the higher bit depth colors. It can not necessarily display them any differently than it can 8 bit color.

Also, since your media sources are 8 bit (and chroma isn't even sampled on every pixel), deep color and higher bit depth are really much ado about nothing at this point.

Choose a display based on features that will actually make a difference, and don't fall for marketing hype.
