Therefor there should never be clipping, regardless of the gamma used.
If the contrast ration of the display is also very low, as the black level is high, that is a separate issue.
But its all related with about how the content is being mastered, if its mastered with 2.4 gamma and based to your BT1886 calibration you will have 2.0 @ 10% Gray for example, then you will be able to see details you should not have to see, so image will look very wash-out, flat and with less depth.
Currently, studios are using Gamma 2.4 ...about 2016 and later.
Before about 2016 it was 2.35
Before about 2014 it was 2.2
If you watch a movie which been released at 2012 @ Blu-Ray, with 2.4 gamma now, it may look a bit dark.
Ideally you need a secondary picture mode calibrated with different gamma, to give you flexibility when you are watching various content (older releases).
When you have zero black (OLED) with BT.1886 then it has the exact same luma targets as Power Law Gamma 2.4
Thankyou for that explanation..
I actually dont have so much of an issue with old content vs new content.. Old DVDs, new Blu rays.. not a real issue..
But with new content: Cable tv vs. Netflix (and the other streaming services) and blu ray..
So basically cable tv vs. Higher quality productions..
Cable tv actually looks best on Gamma 2.0.. is it possible that the tv stations produce it that way because most of the tvs out there are not 2.2 or 2.4 but mostly have a brighter gamma?
And Netflix and Blu ray are professional mastered for "darker" sets.. And it is not imagination.. If a movie is broadcasted over cable tv.. it looks brighter then on Netflix..
To me.. Gamma 2.2 or 2.4 is a massive difference.. 2.4 I can not even use with my plasma tv, because of limited light output..
2.0 and 2.1/2.2 are the 2 gammas I switch around.. But does it really have to be that way? And with gamma 2.0 I mean real 2.0ish gamma, which is the stock setting of many Panasonic Plasma TVs..
But Plasma TV with limited light output is a different kind of story.. That is what I really admire about lcd and oled.. Perfect full screen brightness, no ABL, no gamma tricks..
