More changes on the way!
AV1 was released in April 2018, and Google, Mozilla, and Netflix are currently conducting public tests. Estimates vary but some claim that AV1 outperforms VP9 and HEVC by 30% on average. A few big players have committed to using AV1 for video streaming and some industry people expect AV1 to swiftly supplant HEVC but critics argue that despite improvements encoding times are still slow.
TVs and other devices with built-in AV1 hardware decoding are expected to show up in late 2019 or 2020. Will Samsung's 2020 TVs support AV1? That remains to be seen but it is certainly a possibility.
HDR10+ - has a future, or not?
THX now jumping into the fray.
No wonder people want Autocal - but what device, at what cost will hold all these patterns?
