Trying to understand HDR to SDR
I just pulled the trigger on the HT9050. I couldn't say no to the deal and I don't want to spend the full MSRP on the x12000H.
What I am trying to understand, but I still don't have a clear picture about what is needed to simulate the HDR experience using the DCI-P3 color space that the HT9050/x12000 offer. I came across some information about getting an hdfury to strip out the metadata from the HDR signal so that the projector would still get the full signal, but have the metadata stripped, but I don't understand what this technically does? Does it mean that if you strip the metadata and the color band sent is above what the projector can handle you would get faulty signals; basically what is the downside to stripping the metadata signal from HDR? I also came across information about Dave's harpervision, but I am not sure what exactly that is? Is it just a custom display settings with custom gamma etc... that would mimic HDR?
I guess what I am looking for is how would you go about making the HT9050 or any SDR projector with DCI P3 space accept and display faux HDR without tone mapping at the source. Is there a set top box/passthrough or settings that I can set that intercepts between the source and display or settings that I can change and then toggle at the display side?
Sorry for all the newb questions, I did try searching and reading through the forums, but I couldn't get a clear picture on how to go about all this. Please feel free to redirect me to materials that I should be reading.
