Maybe you should know what you are talking about before opening your mouth? I have actually viewed demos at 4000 nits or close to it, in a darkened display area, and no, you are not blinded, the picture looks more realistic with quality content.
Although some experts have warned against going too far with peak luminance in next-generation televisions designs, Tyler Pruitt, technical evangelist with display calibration specialist Portrait Displays/SpectraCal and a SMPTE member, said existing standards aren’t nearly high enough.
Speaking at the Insight Media/Samsung-sponsored QLED and other Advanced Display Technology Summit in Los Angeles last month, Pruitt said that many have balked at Dolby’s 4,000 nit aspirational brightness levels for displays, warning that specular highlights would be blinding to audiences watching in dark rooms. But Sony demonstrated at CES 2018 that 10,000 nits “might not be high enough,” at least not for professional cinemas.
“Sony had a demo at CES that pretty much put to bed the notion that 10,000 nits was going to require sunglasses,” Pruitt told the gathering of content grading and production professionals. “They played pretty much the same image on their 2,000-nit Z9D and an 85-inch 8K prototype display and it made the Z9D picture look like SDR. It was in a dark room. It didn’t make your eyes hurt, and it made images look like they were right in front of you.”
